Shanghai Spring is an 8-part radio series that will take you to one of the most bustling and vibrant cities of the world today and give you a front-row seat at one of the preeminent events in its cultural calendar – the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival.  Award-winning broadcaster and music journalist Paolo Pietropaolo will be our guide, leading us along the sun-dappled streets of Shanghai’s French Concession, where music comes streaming out of windows as city life unfolds below in a riot of color and noise. Each two-hour program includes up to 100 minutes of music along with
sound-rich mini-documentaries. And we'll meet the musicians and composers who are revolutionizing Western classical music in China!  Tune in 5:00-7:00pm each Sunday, February 7th through March 27th

A Note from the General Manager

Dear Friends,

Ice and earthquakes.  These have been the bane of our existence over the last couple of months.  When ice covers the antenna (ice can form at the antenna level, 800 feet above the ground, even when the air remains above freezing at the ground) it becomes necessary to cut transmission power to keep from damaging the transmitter.  Last Thanksgiving we had to cut power to 5% and wait for the ice to melt.  When the ice did melt, it fell downward as rods and shattered most of the beacons and marker lights on both our campus and Oklahoma City towers.  We had both re-lamped.  A second round of ice shattered some of the newly replaced lamps on the big tower.  Re-lamp again.

Then there were two earthquakes in the course of one week.  These quakes cut of power to the UCO campus.  We have temporary backup power to the studios, but the outages lasted longer than our power could hold, so we were off-air a couple of early mornings. 

Thank you for your patience during these unexpected and unavoidable situations.  Your contributions enable us to keep our physical plant operating in spite of what nature throws at us.

Sincerely,

Bradford Ferguson   

General Manager
