We are delighted to announce that KRCB-FM, in partnership with our friends at Coastwalk California, has received a Whale Tails grant from the California Coastal Commission. This grant supports an oral history project which is the first effort to collect the untold stories of how the coast of California was saved from development
The late Peter Douglas, long-time Commission Executive Director, narrates the stories which will be broadcast on KRCB FM, as well as available as podcasts or on demand at krcb.org. The vision of our colleagues at Coastwalk is that visitors driving or hiking the magnificent California coast will be able to download these stories and listen to them as they enjoy the coast.
These audio vignettes, which also feature original music by Mickey Hart, relate the history of the now 40-year struggle to preserve our spectacular coast, by focusing on specific locations. Our goal is to assure that current and future generations will not forget the effort needed for a task such as preserving the coast. We’ll keep you posted, but look for the stories to roll out by September.
