Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

I have been so taken with Creedence Clearwater Revival front man John Fogerty's yowling vocals that I once named a cat after him. Some vocalists like Fogerty sound as electric as the plugged-in guitars that accompany them. Others, such as Al Green and Norah Jones, specialize in smooth styles that may belie the painful emotions they sing about, or help the medicine to go down. Some rock vocalists like Bono and Björk wow us with their belting, full-bellied singing, while still others, like the Velvet Underground and early R.E.M., mumble their way through their music, perhaps in defiance of their audience. On this edition of Maps & Legends, we'll explore several rock and roll vocal styles: Yowlers, Mumblers, Yodelers, Crooners, Belters, and Croakers. This last set will include a whirlwind tour through Bob Dylan's vocal journey of fifty years, from throaty to well, even more throaty.

Maps and Legends airs every alternate Fridays from 7 pm to 9 pm and is hosted by Roberta Werdinger.
