Greetings, and Happy New Year! It's been quite the year here at KLCC. Thanks so much for listening and for your support.
If you haven't done so already I'd like to direct you to Brian Bull's excellent roundup of KLCC reporting for the year.
Plus, have you checked out the Northwest Passage podcast? The year-end roundup is a great way to get aquainted. Not only is that podcast an informative roundup of Oregon news, but it's fun, and the behind-the-scenes look at the KLCC news team is enourmously entertaining.
With that, we have a couple of specials on the schedule to celebrate the end of the year. Enjoy!
Monday December 30 noon & 6:30pm - Capitol Steps Politics Takes a Holiday
Has it been a rough year? Did you put all of your savings into Bill De Blasio's presidential campaign? Did you get a haircut from Boris Johnson's barber? Did you take a job as a public relations spokesperson for Rudy Guiliani?
Then you may feel the need to laugh at 2019, and the Capitol Steps could not agree more! So tune in to the Capitol Steps' New Year's edition of "Politics Takes a Holiday," featuring songs from their latest album, The Lyin' Kings.
What better time to laugh at politics than now, with election season gearing up? After all, the Capitol Steps won't tell you any actual useful information, but they will tell you what rhymes with Pete Buttigieg.
Tuesday December 31 noon - Sound Opinions Best Albums of 2019
As 2019 comes to a close, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot reflect on the best albums of the year. They also hear from Sound Opinions producers and listeners about their favorites.
