Poster artist Kes Woodward is sharpening his Sharpies in preparation for the Saturday, April 1 event at Well Street Art Co. To have Kes sign your poster, “Daybreak,” show up between noon and 4 p.m. with a $50 donation for KUAC. Kes says when he moved to Alaska he immediately felt he’d died and gone to heaven. When painting, he tries to “be here now” and focus on what he is creating. “Daybreak” is his epiphany painting, capturing the low, wane winter sun bursting through the forest. “It’s a metaphor for beauty, wonder, God, enlightenment and joy,” he said. Kes is thrilled to be the 2017 poster artist. “What public broadcasting does is irreplaceable,” he said. “I couldn’t be prouder to be associated with KUAC.”
KUAC’s Spring Fundraiser is set for April 7-9. Offers of delicious food to keep our volunteers fueled up are pouring in and on-air talent is lining up. All we need is your help in the phone bank. You’ll collaborate with other public broadcasting nerds, answering phones, drinking coffee and wearing ridiculous hats. It’s all good fun for a good cause. Support public broadcasting by joining the volunteer ranks of KUAC. Click here and sign up today!
This is KUAC’s 34th poster and the first time Woodward has been featured. He said his heart leapt up at the prospect of one of his paintings becoming a KUAC poster. “I am so utterly delighted and deeply honored,” Woodward said. Find out more »

For Bob Fischer, the new host for Afternoon Concert on Mondays, volunteering for KUAC is a huge part of his life and passion. Several years ago, when Bob found a need for widening the Baroque classical music library, he purchased and donated CDs. After recently retiring from a 50-year career with the National Weather Service, Bob will have more time to give to KUAC listeners. For decades, Bob has hosted Music of the Golden Ages which airs on the non-school board Meeting Tuesdays at 7 p.m. He will continue to produce this show for KUAC. You can hear Bob Fischer as the newest regular Afternoon Concert host Mondays 1-3 p.m. “KUAC is proud to have wonderful volunteers and thankful to folks like Bob who give their time and extensive musical knowledge to enrich our listening experience,” said Lori Neufeld, KUAC FM volunteer coordinator and music director.
