95.5FM Badger Mountain Translator Back on the Air!

Listeners who tune-in to KRCC in the Badger Mountain area on 95.5FM can rejoice.  KRCC heard from our Chief Engineer Joel Belik around 4 p.m. 4/6/15 that he was able to repair the translator and that KRCC is back on the air at 95.5FM!

Joel had been hindered by snow on his first attempts to make repairs, but today's wonderful weather finally granted him an opportunity to make it to the translator.  We have yet to find out if he had to walk the final stretch, which is quite possible.

Thanks for your patience listeners!

Self-Expression or Sexualization?

Colorado College Professor Tomi-Ann Roberts appears on Women in the World. Knowing that girls are watching, women are working to draw the line between the freedom of sexual expression and the exploitation of it.
Between the perennially half-naked Miley Cyrus and celebrities whose only claim to fame is sex appeal, impressionable young women are being taught that sexualizing themselves is the key to empowerment.

100-Year-Old Scrapbook Opens Colorado Springs Teen's Eyes to Preserving History

Palmer High School Student, Graham Gale, came to us with an idea to combine two of her interests - local history & public media - for a school project. Graham visited the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and found the scrapbook of a young woman who lived in the rather different Colorado Springs of 100 years ago.
Fifteen-year-old Graham Gale has spent hours trying to solve the mystery of Mary Kyle, who was born 134 years ago. What she found earned her a new respect for local history and a top grade at Palmer High School for her International Baccalaureate community service project.
