Independent Media Must Stay Strong!

 

Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

My interview with Will Rolls about Wood Burning and Woodstoves is now available for listening here.

Using a wood-burning stove effectively is both an art and a science. 
Wood fuel expert Will Rolls has written a friendly, comprehensive guide about the topic:
The Log Book
Getting the Best From Your Wood-Burning Stove, 2nd Edition

Will Rolls is a chartered forester and talks the reader through the theory and practice 
of getting the best results from their stove. From finding the fuel and seasoning it 
to lighting the stove and operating it cleanly, this book describes the best techniques 
for looking after your log stove.

The Log Book covers log suppliers, avoiding too much smoke and ash, checking fuel quality, and picking the best wood for your fire. The second edition includes:
Flue temperature gauges;
Tips on cleaning the glass
How atmospheric conditions can affect draft, especially when lighting
Why a cold stove is harder to light
Heat fans
Why some stoves require leaving the door ajar when first lighting
Stacking logs next to stoves
Advice for single-vent burners

In this interview, we cover some of the ‘big’ topics such as:
is wood burning sustainable and does burning wood impact climate change?

as well as many practical aspects of wood burning, such as how to store and season firewood, the best way to start a fire, outside air supply, wood stove safety, chimney cleaning and many more.

Will Rolls first started in the biomass industry working for the Forestry Commission as a regional wood fuel coordinator in the East Midlands in the United Kingdom. He moved to Forest Research in 2009 and currently works for the Biomass Energy Centre, a specialist technical-advisory unit providing impartial advice on woodfuel and biomass production and use. The Log Book is a personal project in response to many inquiries from the public that show a poor level of understanding of how to use wood-burning stoves.

The CAB is composed of independent station members who are neither station staff nor Board members. Its purpose is to provide feedback to the station's Board of Directors, review the station's programming goals, make non-binding recommendations, and to advise the Board of Directors on how the station can best serve the communities of our area.
