TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

10 05 2020

As you may be aware, Nashville was hit with two major storms last week. They knocked down trees and electric poles, leaving some people without electricity for several days.

That disruption put me behind on writing the post that would ordinarily have appeared today, a review of the Jeff Gibbs/Michael Moore film, “Planet of the Humans.” The coup de grace came when I learned that WRFN, the station on which I broadcast, was struck by lightning. While the transmitter and backup computers were spared, the mixing board was destroyed, making live broadcasts impossible for the time being. I will have the blog post finished in the next day or two, record it, and it will likely be featured on next Sunday night’s “Green Hour.” I’ll let you know.

The expense of replacing the mixing board comes on the heels of the station’s Spring fundraiser being cancelled because of the Covid quarantine puts the station in a difficult financial situation, and so I am taking this opportunity to ask my readers to consider donating to the station. I am a regular financial supporter, and am making an additional donation to help the station recover from this disaster. Here’s a link to the station’s “donate” page:

Thanks for your help in keeping free speech alive!
