One of the challenges we face at KRCU (and other public radio stations face as well) is time. There are a lot of great radio programs available but a limited number of hours in the day. We are always listening to new programs and reviewing some that have been around a while to make sure we are keeping up with programming trends.
As kind of a New Year’s resolution I pledged to attempt to produce a piece on music for the radio every week. These include interviews and album reviews, and we’ve been airing them inside local availabilities within All Things Considered.
As programmer and producer of KRCU’s music programThe Elliot Potter Show, I already listen to a lot of music, and am passionate about sharing it with our audience.
