KLCC IN OUR COMMUNITY: Listening to Listeners Steve Barton, General Manager, KLCC Don Hein, Program Director, KLCC
KLCC is planning to move its broadcast studios into the "downtown community" by the end of this year. The move to a new state-of-the-art facility and the potential for better public service begs the question: What does our community want from its radio station.
Rather than simply answer your questions about KLCC, the station's staff and management want to hear what City Club members think we should be asking the community about the value and importance of a public radio station that truly serves the public interest.

GODDESS OF GARBAGE: Size Does Matter Julie Daniel, Director, BRING Recycling
When it comes to the environment, size really does matter and Glenwood's Goddess of Garbage, aka Julie Daniel, will tell you exactly why "less is best." Despite our zealous commitment to recycling, we're producing more waste per capita each year. What's driving the increase? What can we do about it? And what does waste have to do with climate change?
During the last year, Julie worked on a task force to draft the Oregon DEQ's waste reduction strategy for the next decade. The group commissioned in-depth research and looked carefully at state, regional and national data on waste. What they discovered may surprise you. It surprised them, and some of the information may challenge your beliefs. It's bound to get you thinking.
