Membership Drive Programs

6 a.m.-6 p.m. April 26 and 27

Membership drives shouldn't be something listeners are subjected to, they should be something to look forward to. KDLL airs all-local, all-original special programs during our membership drives to give listeners two days of the best in public radio programming.
Enjoy!

Trinity Greenhouse on K-Beach Road has been a staple for Central Peninsula gardeners for over 40 years, and though it recently changed hands, the founder is confident the future is growing. Host Jay Barrett welcomes Trinity Greenhouse co-founder Ron Sexton and new owner Darren Henry.

The homesteader history of Kenai is the focus of this hour. Catherine Cassidy of Kasilof and Carol Knutsen of Kenai are Jay Barrett's guests and discuss their work keeping the homesteader history alive.

Each year, there are more opportunities to buy and sell local foods and other agricultural products on the Kenai Peninsula. In another special program for our spring membership drive, we sit down with local farmers Amy Seitz from Lancashire Farms and Brian Olson from Alaska Berries to talk about how the industry is expanding here and how to keep it moving that way.


Peninsula Community Health Services

A lot has changed in healthcare in Dr. Peter Hansen’s 51 years practicing family medicine in Kenai. During this special Spring Membership Drive edition of Kenai Fresh Air, we talk with Dr. Hansen about his first trip to Alaska in the early 1960's, starting his own family practice in Kenai and the legacy of the Hansen name in Kenai.


On "Local Science" Friday we welcome the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District's Pegge Erkeneff, Eric Soderquist, and Jake Doth as we discuss the technology the district uses to in the central office, in the schools, and in the cloud to connect teachers with students, parents with educators, and administrators with the public.
