KPCW has the live broadcast of The Splendid Table's 'Turkey Confidential' for you, starting at 9 AM, followed by a special program, Giving Thanks. And as holiday tradition dictates, Volunteer DJ Paul Askins will play Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant right after NPR's news headlines at noon.
We are immensely thankful for all our listeners and supporters this past year. Happy Turkey Day and have a safe and fun long weekend!
KPCW Radio has completed a significant upgrade to its signal at 88.1 FM that has noticeably improved the listening experience of our core listeners in Summit and Wasatch counties.
KPCW operates on two FM frequencies: 91.9 FM, broadcasting from a tower on top of Quarry Mountain just north of Park City, and 88.1 FM, originating on a tower on top of Lewis Peak which is the dominant peak visible to the northeast from the Snyderville Basin.
KPCW in Park City was honored Thursday night, September 11 in Indianapolis as one of America’s top five noncommercial radio stations. Park City’s community radio station was among an elite group of public stations honored with a nomination for the Marconi Award, the radio industry’s highest honor for overall excellence in broadcasting.
“It was an honor to be included in the list of great American radio stations,” KPCW General Manager Larry Warren said. “I couldn’t be more proud of the staff and volunteers who create great radio for the citizens of the Wasatch Back.”
With Summer winding down, KPCW is wrapping up our Mountain Summer with a few more episodes. This week, the show featured our friends from Park Silly Market and Chris Johnson, a GolfTec teaching professional. He joined the show to talk about a setup that can really help out the golfer in your life. Chef Seth Adams from The Riverhorse also joined the show to talk about his recent visit to NBC's Today show and all the tasty items at The Riverhorse.
On this episode of KPCW's Cool Science Radio, co-hosts Lynn Ware Peek and John Wells speak with Dr. Erik Syrstad of the Space Dynamics Lab at Utah State University. He joined the show to talk about his new invention - an Imaging Dispersive Energy Analyzer - and what it can be used for. Dr. David Belnap from the University Of Utah then joined the show to talk about his work with viruses at the Electron Microscopy Core Laboratory.
