Briefly Noted: RadioActive on KRCL 90.9FM

By Staff

Last month CATALYST was a guest on KRCL’s RadioActive, a show for grassroots activists and community builders, weeknights at 6, hosted by Lara Jones and associates. This is the best show of its kind serving the Valley-smart, humorous, diverse, down to earth and, first and last, informative.

Here’s some of what went down the night we visited: Artist Josh Scheuerman is painting a mural of Bears Ears National Monument in SLC’s Granary District.

Michelle Mileham from Tracy Aviary at Liberty Park explained a guided nature walk happening in the park.

Revitalizing North Temple means ridding the old “north track” of seedy motels in favor of affordable housing. Who gets the final say? We heard from Nigel Swaby, Fairpark resident & chair of the River District Business Alliance; Ivis Garcia, U of U Assistant Professor of City & Metropolitan Planning and Vice Chair of the Planning Commission in Salt Lake City whose students surveyed and inventoried budget motels on North Temple; and Melissa Jensen, SLC Housing & Neighborhood Development Director. KRCL volunteer Jim Boswell, who lives on North Temple, shared his housing story.

Not around a radio at 6pm? You can find past shows on their website or listen on demand with the KRCL Public Radio mobile app for iTunes and Android.
