If you’re not familiar with KRCL, you should check them out. This is not some boring community radio station. They play popular/indie music with no advertisements all day, produce amazing local programming like Radioactive, and bring in great national programs such as The Grateful Dead Hour and Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman. They are big supporters of local arts–including poetry.
