(I sit in on an episode of David Duncan’s NW Tech Show, a staple of the KMUZ Schedule since 2011, to talk about current tech news that affects you.  This was broadcast at 12 Noon on 100.7 & 88.5 FM in Salem/Keizer and other parts of the mid-Willamette Valley, from Woodburn to Albany and Dallas to Stayton.  It was also streaming live on kmuz.org.)

As I may have hinted at in other places here and there, I’ve been volunteering at the local community radio station here in Salem, KMUZ, which not only has a number of incredible local programs, but is community oriented in every sense of the word.  Entirely volunteer run, with no paid staff or any kind, every show is programmed by the individual who hosts and prepares it every week.  You can check out their schedule, and tune in live to hear some amazing locally produced radio, just the way you like it.

While a few people post archives or recordings of their shows, KMUZ is radio the old fashioned way: live and fleeting.  That doesn’t stop the DJs from recording their shows, but it does put the emphasis back on what radio does best: listening in the moment, hearing a song or a conversation that is IN THE NOW, and then moving on to the next thing that is also of that moment.  It’s been a lot of fun to reconnect with this part of radio, and I’ve enjoyed volunteering there quite a bit.

Fortunately for us, David Duncan – the host of NW Tech Show, records his programs, and as a bonus this week, I’ve included this recording in the podcast feed.  As the show suggests, we talk about very real current tech news, and offer some thoughts on these issues.  I am by no means an expert in the world of tech, and I offer my comments as personal opinion rather than as a thought leader you should consider.  But it was a lot of fun to get a chance to offer an unprofessional opinion on the subjects at hand.  David runs a good show, and is a real professional behind the board.  If this kind of thing interests you, the show is also aired on Capital Community Television, and you can see a few past episodes on nwtechshow.com.
