Morrissey runs the KRCL Facebook group; he sent out this bulletin to its 72 members today:
"So, here's the word ... The paid DJs you've all heard much about will take the studio beginning Monday, May 5. So you have about a month left with your (remaining) favorite volunteer daytime hosts.
The three DJs who have been selected are all current volunteers and talented programmers. So, that's encouraging. They'll certainly have a tough road to hoe, however. There's a lot of people who are still rightfully bitter. I wish them good luck.
Specifically, they are:
Ebay [Jamil], host of Rhythm Kitchen
Bad Brad [Wheeler], host of Wednesday & Thursday Roots 'n Blues
David [P], host of Friday & Saturday Breakfast Jams
If you have any other thoughts you'd like to share with the KRCL staff or boardmembers, I believe the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As I'll be losing my show in about a month and am not sure what my relationship will be with KRCL other than as a listener, I'll be bowing out as group 'officer' here on Facebook. Thanks for your support for all of the daytime programming and volunteer programming in general."
These are three excellent choices; disgruntled listeners should give them a chance. If not, there's always the new online-radio startup at UtahFM.org, headed up by former KRCL daytime volunteers. (Bill Frost)
