Raven's 30th Anniversary

Stoking the fire she started

What a pleasure it was to visit with Marika Partridge, Raven Radio founder and first Program Director. She started planning for Raven Radio’s 30th Anniversary celebrations last summer with a phone call to the station…”What are we planning?” and helped lead preparations through the year, right up to the festivities. Marika and her wonderful family pitched in wherever needed and lifted the spirits of all those around them. Thank you for your time, energy, talents and excellent radio!
