This is a little off topic as far as permaculture goes, but I'm sure a few of my fellow Permies here can appreciate some great music while they toil around the homestead in this hot June sun.

Back when I lived in the area, the local public radio station of Kentuckiana, WFPK Radio Louisville, was the only thing I listened to, save for my Spotify playlists. This station is so unique - they play a little bit of everything, support local artists, and offer a bouquet of musical delights all day every day for your listening pleasure.



You can actually stream them live on their site here from anywhere!

This station is over 50 years old, and entirely listener supported and non-commercial. They sell advertising and hold fundraisers to keep the lights on, and my husband and I have always been happy to support this station. Even though we now live almost 2000 miles away, we still stream it online and tell anyone who will listen how much we love it.

Seriously, it has got to be the BEST radio station in North America - it's incredibly unique.

If you listen and decide you love it, please consider becoming a financial supporter - not only do the funds go to the logistics of running a radio station, but this year they've also set the ambitious goal of beginning to raise funds to renovate their office building, a campaign they're calling the "Raise Your Voice" project. Additional details on the “Raise Your Voice” capital campaign can be found at Campaign.LouisvillePublicMedia.org. Louisville Public Media will host an on-air phase of the campaign from June 13-18.

If you'd like to support this radio station, you can do so here.

They have a weekly schedule that they follow, so you can expect to get certain types of music on certain days - my husband used to love his Sunday morning 'Relics' hour while he fried bacon and drank coffee. I was always a fan of the Roots n' Boots myself.

For those of you that prefer classical music, their sister station, Classical 90.5 WUOL is another great one to tune into that also offers online streaming.

Cool! Glad your a supporter of community radio; it's a amazing thing, getting info without the ad's. Multi tasking at it's best. We have a great station here in the Tampa Bay Area (USA, FL) www.wmnf.org, Community Conscious Radio. I'm a volunteer and produce a Sustainable Living Show on Monday's at 10 AM. Over the years we've cover some of the many aspects of permaculture. The shows are archived.
