KDNK’s Luke Nestler and Cody Lee talked on Roots, Branches, and Buds this week about some of their recent musical discoveries and the major CD and vinyl donations received this year. They and several volunteer DJs are in the midst of a major project in the KDNK music library, as they get ready for Potato Day and the KDNK Record Hop, on Saturday, October 6th from 9am to 3pm.

I attended the Western States Public Radio annual conference at KEXP Seattle on a scholarship that will reimburse KDNK for my airfare, hotel, and expenses. We toured KEXP, listened to presentations by executives at public media development organization Greater Public, and met the director of Seattle’s Office of Film + Music.
