Two Departures, a Sabbatical, and a Wild Fox

One of our longest weekly KDRT Programmers is taking a four-month sabbatical. Live Tracks' Jim Buchanan will still assist with station operations and record live music around town, but will take a well-deserved break from his two-hour weekly show. Listeners are invited to tune in Thursdays at 7 p.m. to hear Sara TAPS broadcast The Awesome Patrol Show in his place. Sara is herself a longtime volunteer and programmer. We hope to see "Live Tracks" back in business by the summer.
