Supporting passionate programming on KUAC!

Fred Child, host of Performance TodayWhen KUAC received a gift from Fred Child of Minnesota, we had to ask –THE Fred Child, host of Performance Today, heard weekday mornings on KUAC FM? Turns out, YES! His gift was inspired by “a little winter get-away” to the Interior of Alaska which included exploring Angel Rocks, Denali National Park, burgers and brew at Silver Gulch, and aurora hunting in North Pole. “All of which meant a fair amount of driving, and I had the radio locked onto 89.9 the entire 4-day weekend. I loved it!” Fred told us.

Thanks to Fred, and all our supporters, who make it possible for KUAC to offer programs with passionate, knowledgeable hosts to uphold our mission to present performances that would otherwise be inaccessible.
