"Local public radio station KHSU will hold its monthly meeting [July 30th] in Humboldt State University's Kate Buchanan room Wednesday, rather than in its usual location in the Student and Business Services Building, a move that reflects community concern over the departure of the station's longtime General Manager Elizabeth Hans McCrone and the rumored cancellation of several popular programs..."
Plus, the station will celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2010 and they are already working to compile artifacts via a digital archive. According to Humboldt State Now:
"A sample of some of the historical recorded news content includes KHSU volunteer Michael Fennell’s 1984 live-on-the-spot CAMP report. Also added to the archives is a reel-to-reel audio of an interview with the late environmental activist Judi Bari. It was recorded in 1993, three years after the infamous car bomb attack Bari and passenger Darryl Cherney suffered in Oakland in May of 1990.
KHSU Volunteer Coordinator Beth Rogers is getting the word out to people who have been involved with the station over the years. 'We are hoping to reach out to former KHSU deejays, staff and volunteers through HSU alumni channels to encourage them to give us a paragraph or a short story on their days with the station, or memorabilia items that can be added to the archive,' Rogers said."
You can view the KHSU digital archive from the Humboldt Digital Scholar website and read more about their history on the KHSU website.
