KWTF Has A Studio!!!


Great news everybody KWTF now has our studio up and running! Starting next Tuesday we have programmers booked to prerecord and do LIVE radio out of our studio. Huge thanks to all of our supporters for funding this effort, big shout outs to:Redwood Justice Fund and Stanroy Music Center for their generous donations. Thanks to Josh Drake for figuring out  how to wire our broadcast  console, Yarrow Sweningsen for the headphone amp and a billion other do-dads, to Bob Gowa for the voice processors, mic booms and endless consultations, and to Will McCollum for the cross fader, turn table and headphone adapters.

Now is the time for you to get on our air. If you have an idea for a show please complete this form and we will contact you for an interview and training.

Operating this studio will increase KWTF’s expenses. KWTF relies on donor support to operate. Please support our progress by donating here.

2x Tycho – Awake CD (Donated by Ghostly International via Terrorbird Media)

Enveloping us in a new world of sound, Tycho (aka Scott Hansen) returns with Awake, his second album released with Ghostly. Following his breakthrough album Dive, Hansen attempts to capture the emotions felt on the road as his live show traversed the globe. Now a true three-piece with Zac Brown on guitar/bass and Rory O’Connor behind the drums, Hansen transports listeners to a land filled with sunshine and open roads, as only a native Californian can. Opening track “Awake,” prepares us for a journey into this mystic land, its swirling melodies pushing us down the right path. Awake captures Hansen’s stylistic shift, showcasing a new kinetic sensory experience.
