The Days of Yore

Welcome to your weekend. Thank you for tuning in.

Once again we gather around the community fire to celebrate the life of all. We dance on Mother Earth and celebrate the returning of the Sun. We will also remember and honor those in history who have been tragically taken.

With the New Year quickly approaching, we will focus on both the celebration of life and the loss of it.

Walk in peace,

Tall Feathers

WTF: Happy Holidays

"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."

Hope you're enjoying the holiday season. My brother gave me a cool toy with art by Joan Miro in the background ... you know, the toy where you've got to get the little balls in the little holes as you tilt it back and forth. And then I got to watch two grown men play a game of electric football. Too funny. Anyhow ... I've got a bunch of music to play for you tonight 9-11pmEST, so tune in, K?
