Local news returns to 6:49 & 7:49 AM

NPR_Morning_EditionYou spoke, we listened!

After a month-long test of our new morning lineup, we’ve taken your feedback and created what we hope combines KCAW’s tradition of providing the best local, state, and national news available, with the predictability you’ve come to rely on from your community station.

While there’s much to like about where we’re headed with the morning schedule, many of us were happier with Local News at its original times at 6:49 and 7:49.

Check out our revised Morning Edition rundown beginning Monday, September 30, 2013:

Daniels pushes students to bring jazz to life

The Dee Daniels Vocal Jazz Workshop is underway this week in Sitka (July 18-25). For the last two years, Daniels has interrupted her touring and teaching schedule to live at the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and coach a half-dozen students of widely-ranging ages and ability. KCAW’s Robert Woolsey recently stopped by her class and learned how much work it takes to make jazz seem effortless. more
