Dave Matthews, Graham Nash, Candy Crowley, Yo-Yo Ma, & many others have lauded KRUU for being solar, independent, for keeping radio alive. I remember the President saying when we interviewed him in 2008: "This is a professional set up." Rickie Lee Jones was short & sweet: "Solar-powered radio? That's bitchin'."
