Cliff Berkowitz / Monday, April 14 @ 7:26 a.m. / Politics
Each morning beginning Monday April 21st through Friday April 25th I will sit down with each of the candidate for District Attorney and Humboldt County Board of Supervisors and have a one on one conversation with them. This is not a debate, or a quick soundbite opportunity. I will spend 15 minutes with each of them getting to know who they are, whey the are running, what they plan to do and what is important to them.
Tuesday 4/22: 7:30AM Allan Dollison (DA)
Wednesday 4/23: 7:30AM Ryan Sundberg (5th district) - 8:30AM Sharon Latour (5th district)
Thursday 4/24: 7:30AM Elan Firpo (DA) - 8:30AM Maggie Fleming (DA)
Friday 4/25: 8:30AM Virginia Bass (4th district)
So before you head to voting booth in June, get to know the candidates one on one. If you miss any of the interviews they will be archived right here for you to download or stream.

Mike Dronkers / Thursday, March 27 @ 4:44 p.m. /
The KHUM Open Mic Project is finally here!
What is it?
It's like a real open mic, just with a community twist. You should plug a bake sale for your kid's school. You should read a quick poem.
Think of it like that bulletin board outside the Arcata Co-op.
How do I do this?
Read this primer. Then record :45 of sound on whatever device you want, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's the catch?
No catch. This is a social experiment, and we actually believe that the constellation of Humboldt voices is a beautiful thing. It has to jive with KHUM, and it has to be legal. So get started on your KHUM Open Mic session!
