On April 26, 2007, Ken Malloy interviewed Warren Wechsler on his show, Get To Know Your Neighbor. Warren passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008.

Saddened by Warren's death and with condolences for his family, KRUU is rebroadcasting Ken's interview, with a few additional comments by Ken. Funeral services will be at 8pm Thursday at Beth Shalom Synagogue at 308 South B. show, Get To Know Your Neighbor. Warren passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008.

From the Fairfield Ledger, Wednesday, October 22: show, Get To Know Your Neighbor. Warren passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008.

"Mr. Wechsler was born May 1, 1953 in Pittsburgh, Pa., the son of Samuel Wechsler and Frieda Tischler Wechsler Rosenberg. He married Gail Young Nov. 6, 1983." show, Get To Know Your Neighbor. Warren passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008.


Iowa State Bank and Trust Company has notified KRUU that they will act as a drop off location the donations to the American Red Cross Floods of 2008 Disaster Relief Funds. This will make it easier for donors to give to the flood relief cause, by stopping in the bank or giving a teller either cash or check to be designated to the local, eastern Iowa regional and state flood relief program of the American Red Cross.
So far, the flood response in the Midwest has cost about $15,000,000, and the Red Cross estimates it could reach as high as $40,000,000.
The Red Cross needs your help. Thanks.

The New Guy tapped into the local music scene last night and had a ball. I attended a house concert featuring singer/songwriter Romi Mayes hosted by KRUU's own Lauryn Shapter and Dennis James.

The house was packed, the food was lovely, and Mayes treated her audience to her lovely, expressive voice, fine guitar stylings, and funny, sometime ribald commentary between songs.

House Concerts are great fun. If you get a chance, check one out.

Oh Yeah, one more thing. Training firefighters to conduct warrantless searches under the guise of fire prevention inspections?

Things are busy for the new guy this week. Station Manager, James Moore, and I have been going over station policy, how things work, and what my job as an Americorps*VISTA volunteer will be.

The word from James is that the wonderful birthday party of Nancy Gibson's resulted in contributions of more than $300! Wow, Thanks.

Thanks for listening to, supporting and participating in the voice of Fairfield, KRUU.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Noise is pollution, and it hurts people. It says so Here.

And Here. And Here. And Here. And Here.

Ah, the Morning Star Studio--that beautiful preserved slice of 1940's ballroom goodness. What a place for a party. And what a party it was.

Nancy Gibson wanted all her friends and family to celebrate her fiftieth birthday with her. She also suggested that in lieu of gifts to her, her guests consider contributing to KRUU. Very cool of you Nancy, Thanks.

As the outreach guy, it was my pleasure to be there managing the KRUU table under the KRUU Banner. It was also a pleasure to find out that I was going to be fed. Two buffet tables were groaning under the weight of goodies from rice stuffed cherry tomatoes to birthday cake. Yum.

Just want to say hello to all the listeners, friends of KRUU and readers of the blogs on our website.
