Jan. 16: Redding on West Coast Live This Weekend


Jefferson Public Radio brought West Coast Live to Redding in November 2009 for a show that was taped for later broadcast, which will be this weekend. Guests include:

  • Tony D’Souza, author of “Konkans” and “Whiteman,” who sought solace in Redding and Dunsmuir after Peace Corps time in war-fraught Africa
  • Gentle Thunder – the Grammy nominated hammer dulcimer & Native American flutist
  • Kathryn Gessner & Pamela Spoto – Poets for Peace
  • One Horse Shy – an Ashland band
  • Robert Girardi, author of the new “Gorgeous East” and other adventure novels
  • Enterprise High School Hornet Marching Band with leader Dan Neece

If Mother Nature plays nice and doesn’t bring nasty weather that knocks the mountaintop transmitters off the air, you should be able to tune into the broadcast at these frequencies in the Redding area.

Saturday, Jan. 16, at 3pm on JPR’s Rhythm & News Service at 89.7FM
Saturday, Jan. 16 at 1pm on JPR’s News & Information Service at 1330 AM (the volume level on this station is much lower).

Also, all three of JPR’s stations stream live on the web, so you can try tuning into one of these broadcasts through ijpr.org or, for those with an I-Phone, download the free JPR App at our website.

    Tony D'Souza wrote a book, "Whiteman", which is an excellent read by the way. Looks like you have a typo.

    Thanks for the sharp eye, Doug. That typo has been fixed.

      It wasn't really a sharp eye, more like cognitive dissonance. Thanks for your coverage of local events and people.
