Volunteer Spotlight Award Winner Announced

KEOS proudly recognizes Reta Taylor as the inaugural winner of the KEOS Volunteer Spotlight Award, a quarterly award that honors the achievements of our volunteers. A KEOS volunteer for twenty-two years, Reta serves on the KEOS Management Team and is one of the hosts of “The Gospel Express,” a locally produced program that airs each Sunday morning on KEOS from 7:00-11:00 am. Reta enthusiastically promotes KEOS and our community mission, and she has become one of the most recognizable KEOS volunteers in our local community. Most recently, you may have seen Reta and “The Gospel Express” representing KEOS in the annual Juneteenth parade in Bryan. Thank you, Reta, for being a part of the KEOS family!

Calling all Helping Hands!

As your independent, public community radio station, KEOS invites and depends on the listeners served by our broadcast signal to get involved as volunteers with virtually all aspects of station operations.

Our amazing volunteers serve as on-air programmers, bringing listeners like you the music, news and public affairs programs you love. There are also many behind-the-scenes volunteers doing event management, facilities maintenance, committee service, music library work, answering pledge phones and much more.

We need YOU to help keep us on the air. Learn more about how you can get involved today. Thank you, Brazos Valley!

Thank you KEOS Listeners

Dear KEOS Supporters:

The KEOS Board of Directors and Management Team would like to thank all of our listeners and donors. We appreciate your comments about our programming, which we do take seriously. As an all-volunteer station with limited resources, we don’t always respond to your comments as quickly as we’d like to, but we do take the time to consider your comments as we make decisions about KEOS and its future. KEOS is committed to serving the under-served and under-represented in our community, as we strive to create and sustain a culture of respect.

If you have any questions or comments about KEOS’s programming or becoming a volunteer, please contact the KEOS Management Team at mt@keos.org. Please visit http://keos.org/wp/support-keos/volunteer/ to find out more about how you can become a KEOS volunteer.

As we look forward to KEOS’s 25th birthday next year, we are very aware that we only exist because of the support and generosity of our listeners. Thank you for all that you do to make KEOS a part of our community!

Sincerely,

KEOS Board of Directors: Krista May, Suil Kang, Bucky Bachmeyer, John Bondurant, Jim Ball, Cara Wallis, and Guy Milford

Reveal: Award-Winning Investigative Journalism

Tune in Wednesdays at 6:00pm for Reveal, the Peabody Award-winning investigative journalism program for public radio hosted by Al Letson. We’ve heard the corporate-sponsored news, but we want to know what really happened. That’s what Reveal is all about: finding out what’s going on behind the scenes, and what’s hidden from public view. Here’s Reveal’s guide to spotting fake news.

This week’s episode, “America’s Drug War, Revealed,” shows how a baggie of crack cocaine packed with fear, distortion and misconceptions, and one presidential address in the 1980s, helped shape the war on drugs.

Tune in for Alternative Radio, Thursdays 6.00 P.M. – 7.00 P.M. on KEOS Community Radio this week’s show is “The Dream of Revolution” by Robin Kelley

In some ways Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered twice. First by an assassin’s bullet in Memphis and then by killing his revolutionary message. Today, King is largely remembered with special holiday sales. His vision of radical revolution muted. He posed a special threat to the power structure. It was one thing to demand desegregation of lunch counters and quite another when in his Beyond Vietnam speech he called for:

“a radical redistribution of economic and
political power . . . a revolution of values . . . We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together. . . The whole structure of American life must be changed.”

Those words in 1967 resonate today. The dream of revolution, of creating a society based on equality and justice lives on.
