Many Voices-One Station: In times like these, we need rapid access to trustworthy local information. Our  station will broadcast news and interviews based on the journalistic ethics and standards of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality,  fairness and public accountability. We will celebrate that colorful,  exciting, beautiful, innovative and quirky place we call home. Programs  will be engaging, high-quality and original, focusing on telling the  stories of life here on the central coast. Think: musicians, artists,  writers, dancers, scientists, intellectuals, children, youth, seniors,  electeds, non-profit leaders, historians,etc.  Bringing back the best of programmers we all miss from KUSP ( Ask Dr. Dawn, Geek Speak, Talk of the Bay, Celtic, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk, and World music), Democracy Now!, Thom Hartmann, Your Call, plus a slate of new shows.  For more information and to read our business plan:  www.ksqd.org.
