KPQR strives to cover all the issues and stories of the community and to give people the tools to communicate better as community participants.
Dale Danley and I were happy to meet Bobby Harsell -- the man with the vision for the station -- and general manager George Holman. My interview with George was a great opportunity to share Marie Equi's story with a wider audience. Have a listen here to the 21 minute program.
