The Talkies Friday June 24th 2011, From Russia With Love...

Date 24 June 2011

KVMR hosted a delegation of Russian civic officials from Kandalaksha, a city in the Murmansk region of the country above the Arctic Circle. They’d been in Nevada County as part of the Open World exchange program, spending a week meeting with city and county government officials, as well as a visit with some State Assembly members in Sacramento. We talked with them about how community radio is volunteer-driven radio, on air and off, and the differences between KVMR and mainstream media, corporate-owned stations and commercial radio.

Then we invited them into our live on-air studios for an hour discussion about their impressions of America and their government, which has a decidedly younger look than that in the U.S. Find out how by listening:
