A Message to Our Members If you are a regular listener to AM

580, you may have noticed that we have been off the air repeatedly during recent storm activity. It is a common problem for radio and TV stations to sometimes go off the air during severe storms, due to power outages and lightning strikes, but AM 580’s problems have become far more frequent than we would normally expect. In fact, on one evening during May, the transmitter had to be reset more than 40 times by the on-duty engineer! This should not be a normal occurrence, and our engineering staff has been investigating the cause of the problem ever since. During the last week of May, we brought in outside engineering consultants to research our problem, and, hopefully, to identify some solutions. Part of the problem is due to the age of the various AM transmitter components and towers. Some parts of the facility, including the building that

PATTERNS • JULY 2009

from General Manager Mark Leonard

houses the transmitter, date back to the original launch of the AM station in 1922! Both WILL’s FM and TV transmitters have recently been replaced and upgraded to digital broadcast technology. Unfortunately, we have not had the funds available to do the same for our AM service. Due to tight budget constraints over the past decade, much ongoing routine maintenance of the facility has been deferred. For example, the two transmission towers are desperately in need of guy wire tensioning, and the overall tower needs to be painted to maintain conformance with FAA requirements. (The FAA has guidelines in place for tower visibility and strobe lighting for aircraft safety). Just like deferring replacement of shocks and brakes on your car, there is eventually a day of reckoning when you have to replace those items. WILL is facing those issues with our AM transmitter, and all of the remaining analog broadcast and production equipment located at Campbell Hall. We are engaged in identifying our overall needs, and budgeting for these

overdue expenditures. The total price will be substantial, and may require several years to fund and accomplish. We hope to have this research accomplished by September and will share our plans with you then. Obviously, this is a difficult time economically to try to raise funds, but it is becoming apparent that many of these investments cannot be deferred any longer. In the meantime, we will continue to diagnose and repair the problems as quickly as possible to minimize future outages. WILL has secured partial funding for an emergency power generator for our TV and FM transmitters, which should ensure continued operation even when power lines come down during severe storms. We ask for your patience as we work to ensure our AM signal has the same reliability.


The Story Behind

A Prairie Home Companion with GARRISON KEILLOR

Lake Wobegon—where the women are strong, the

men are good looking and all the children are above average—has become America’s collective hometown, visited weekly for the past 40 years on a fictional radio program that creates bona fide nostalgia. With A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor became our national philosopher, filling the empty shoes of Will Rogers and Mark Twain, through his running commentary about the human condition and the social politic. With biting wit, a quirky perspective and an uncanny ability to take the pulse of America, Keillor’s themes and characters are somehow familiar to us all. For more than a year, American Masters followed this great raconteur—and his motley crew of actors, musicians and technical staff—as he toured the country, presenting his special program. The result is Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes, a look at the way an imaginary world became a real place that speaks to our inherent patriotism. It premieres at 7 pm Wednesday, July 1, on WILL TV. Listen to each week’s A Prairie Home Companion radio show on FM 90.9 at 5 pm Saturday and 2 pm Sunday.

Celebrate America’s 233rd birthday with WILL! The celebration begins with The

Capitol Steps Independence Day edition of Politics Takes a Holiday, which will air at 2:30 and 6:30 pm Friday, July 3, on AM 580. Sure to be included in the hilarity are Joe Biden, Arlen Spector and bits of legislation contained in the Political Satire Recovery Act of 2009. American music takes center stage on July 4, beginning with a four-hour edition of our annual special, Made in the USA! on FM 90.9. Starting at 7 am, host and producer Vincent Trauth will draw on such American classics as Appalachian Spring, Rodeo, Sousa marches, Joplin rags, music by America’s first virtuoso pianist/ composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk, miniatures by Edward MacDowell, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and

much more. American music continues throughout the day, including the Grand Canyon Suite featured on Classics of the Phonograph and Porgy and Bess on Afternoon at the Opera. Broadcast live in high definition at 7 pm and repeated at 9 pm on WILL TV, the 29th annual Capitol Fourth concert from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol features Aretha Franklin; singer and actress Vanessa Williams; international pop sensation Natasha Bedingfield; the Tony and Grammy Award-winning cast of Jersey Boys; multi-Grammy Award nominee Michael Feinstein; and acclaimed classical pianist Andrew von Oeyen with the National Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Erich Kunzel. The evening will conclude with the nation’s most spectacular fireworks display.

Kathy Munday Makes an Impact through Public Media sentimental Christmas song from Sesame Street prompted Kathy Munday to begin supporting WILL years ago when her children were small. “Keep Christmas with You All Through the Year” is still a Christmas staple in Kathy’s family as well as a pick-me-up any time of year. It’s so meaningful to her family members that they email the lyrics to each other when they can’t be together for the holidays. The song reminds Kathy of her first connection to WILL, when her son called in a pledge on Christmas Eve 1986. Her involvement with WILL has grown over the years to include becoming an underwriter of programs on WILL radio and television, a member of the WILL Community Advisory Committee, a pledge drive volunteer and a member of WILL’s Vision Circle of donors. Many of the reasons she supports WILL are a natural outgrowth of the role she plays in the community. A businesswoman and pharmacist who owns the St. Joseph Apothecary, Kathy knows it’s good for business to have people hear her pharmacy’s name on WILL. And giving helps her feel as if she’s a part of WILL and the benefits it provides to central Illinois.

s Kathy Munday

But the personal connection she feels toward WILL, particularly WILL-FM, is the main reason she contributes her money and her time. “You don’t get many other places to listen to music that are so personal. People on the air make you feel like you are a part of the concert,” she said. Kathy recently sponsored a special project at WILL-FM, Roger Cooper’s “Women on the Prairie” edition of Prairie Performances on Mother’s Day. She mentioned to WILL staff members that she would like to hear more local female composers and performers on the air.

That was the genesis of the program that featured the University of Illinois Women’s Glee Club, Amasong, Marilyn Horne, Ani Aznavoorian, Charlotte Mattax, Ollie Watts Davis and Karen Lynne Deal. “I sat at home and listened, a beagle on each hip, and just loved it,” Kathy said. Being able to contribute an idea, and making it possible for WILL to turn the idea into a program, was a satisfying experience, she said. Danda Beard, director of major gifts for Illinois Public Media, said she has a number of special projects and valued local programs coming up for which she is seeking gifts like the one Kathy made for Prairie Performances. “We invite Friends to imagine their own best way to serve the community through public media,” said Danda. “We’re encouraging Vision Circle sponsors to make a gift in support of the 2009 University of Illinois Allerton Barn Festival Concert Series, the upcoming locally produced WILL-TV special Red Grange Remembers, Your Weather with Ed Kieser and Mike Sola, or one of many other programs and projects. For more information on how you can support a special project, call Danda Beard at 217-333-9393 or send email to dtbeard@illinois.edu.

New Program Weaves A Tapestry of American and World Music

s Aaron Henkin

Once again, FM 90.9 brings you

another new and innovative music program with the addition of Tapestry of the Times at 10 pm Saturdays beginning this month. This hour-long show is produced by Aaron Henkin of Baltimore’s WYPR, in partnership with Smithsonian Folkways Records, which provides the vast music and sound archives on which the program draws.  PATTERNS • JULY 2009

Henkin’s reporting and features have aired nationally on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and The World, so it’s no surprise that while Tapestry offers an exceptional collection of folk, jazz, blues and world music, it’s Henkin’s focus on the people behind the music that sets the show apart. “I try to draw unexpected connections and find common ground among various genres of music, from one end of the globe to the other,” he said. Smithsonian Folkways is the record label of America’s national museum, continuing the work of Moses Asch, who founded Folkways Records in 1948 to document “people’s music” and sounds from around the world.

“I’m thrilled to share the 60-year depth of the Smithsonian Folkways sound archives through Tapestry of the Times,” Henkin said. Jake Schumacher, FM 90.9 program director, marvels at how perfectly the program will transition Saturday evening listeners from Nick Spitzer’s American Routes to The World Music Hour. “Tapestry of the Times will appeal to both older public radio music listeners who may have had several Folkways LPs on their shelves, and to younger listeners who are hungry for roots music from America and abroad. Aaron is a great music educator while managing to provide a fun and lively radio show. Give it a listen!”


Exploring the Quest for Gender Equity in Central Illinois This month on AM 580, a radio

documentary created by Urbana University Laboratory High School students looks at how the fight for gender equity took place in central Illinois. Airing at 11 am Friday, July 3, and 6 pm Saturday, July 25, Rethinking Assumptions: The Quest for Gender Equity in East Central Illinois, features interviews with 13 women and two men, who talk about how the struggle for gender equity has left an imprint on their lives. Students in the Uni High class of 2012 conducted the interviews. Some of the interviewees experienced discrimination or missed opportunities because of bias against their gender. Others worked to end this discrimination. Janet Morford, the Uni High teacher who supervised the project along with Illinois Public Media’s Dave Dickey, said she found it interesting that many women in Champaign-Urbana had come here because of the University of Illinois, but had been unable to work there because their husbands were employed there. “So many talented women came here and had to reinvent themselves because of the university’s nepotism policy,” she said. “Another interesting thing we saw in the interviews was the tension between gender and race,” said Morford. “We found that some people were torn between loyalty to members of their racial group and to their gender.” Some African-American women suggested that it was more important to stand up to racism, and to stand by African-American men, than to confront gender bias. Others spoke compellingly of the double burden of having their capabilities questioned on the grounds of race and gender, and recalled how these attitudes on the part of others only strengthened their own determination to excel, she said.

s Linda Ly and Maritza Mestre

The documentary also looks at how reproductive rights and women’s safety mobilized people on college campuses in recent years. “So much work in gender equity is still going on in the areas of domestic violence and rape,” said Maritza Mestre, one of the student co-producers of the documentary. The other student co-producer, Linda Ly, said she was shocked in researching the documentary to discover how long ago women began fighting for gender equity. “I didn’t realize how far back it went. It took so long for people to take them seriously,” she said.

“I discovered there is so much you can learn about people, but you can’t learn unless you ask. And they are so willing to tell their stories. You find out these amazing stories about their lives.” Those interviewed for the project were Erma Bridgewater, Ann Einhorn, Marianne Ferber, Cathy Garner, Rosetta Gray, Jacque Kahn, Matt Mitchell, Pat Morey, Millie Ransom, Helen Satterthwaite, Bernadine Stake, Cecile Steinberg, Shirley Stillinger, Ross Wantland and Ruby Weathersby.

Working with WILL on the project was an incredible opportunity, Maritza said.

Time Team America

u 7 pm

At Fort Raleigh, N.C., the team untangles the mystery of the first English settlement in America, where 116 settlers vanished from Roanoke Island more than 400 years ago. The team wades into the swamps of Topper, S.C., to further understand-

ing of North America’s first human inhabitants. In New Philadelphia, Ill., the team joins in the search for the pre-Civil War schoolhouse where the community’s AfricanAmerican children learned to read and write in freedom. (Prairie Fire told the story of New Philadelphia in this season’s premiere episode. Watch an encore presentation at 7:30 pm Thursday, July 9.) The team also explores the picturesque and remote canyons near Range Creek, Utah, to examine what remains of the Fremont Indians who lived there 1,000 years ago.

Wednesdays, beginning July 8

Money as a Global Engine In a new four-part series, Harvard historian Niall Ferguson delves deep into how the complex system of global finance evolved over the centuries, how money has shaped the course of human affairs and how the mechanics of this economic system work to create seemingly unlimited wealth—or catastrophic loss. The program is based on Ferguson’s best-seller, The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World, which predicted the current economic crisis.

Clear-Eyed, but Passionate

about Dogs

come to test drive the car and every time they drove the car back in the driveway, the family dog would think it was the father coming home.”

Although Carole Lindholm and Jim

Kuehl dispense clear-eyed, no-nonsense advice on dog training and behavior during their monthly appearance on WILL-AM’s The Afternoon Magazine, they admit to occasionally losing their cool. Sometimes they get sad, and other times they get mad. But on the air, they try to remain unruffled advisers. “We had a poignant phone call from a woman whose father had died and her mother was selling the dad’s car,” said Carole, describing a time she shed a few tears during the show. “People would

Then there are the frustrating calls like the one from a man who tied his golden retriever in the front yard every day and wondered why the dog barked. “Bring the dog in the house. He’s lonely,” Carole and Jim told him. “But he didn’t want to hear that. He didn’t want the dog in the house,” said Jim. Mostly, though, people are just looking for practical help with a dog problem. Although a lot of information on dog obedience and behavior is available in books and on the Internet, Carole and Jim think they offer something extra to callers at 1:06 pm the first Friday each month. “I think people with a problem want to talk to a real person and get that reassurance about what to do,” Jim said.

Alternatives to oil and the challenges

of developing other energy sources are the focus of two On the Radio hourlong specials produced by Purdue University’s College of Engineering. After Oil will air at 1 pm Friday, July 3, on AM 580.

On the Radio: New from Purdue U

14 PATTERNS • JULY 2009

Narrated by Barbara Bogaev, former fill-in host on Fresh Air, the program examines the impact an unmet demand for oil will have on the United States, which consumes 10 million gallons of petroleum every hour. Scientists and engineers discuss alternative fuel sources in the works as they plan for the day when the world’s supply of oil reaches its peak and begins to decline.

Both Carole and Jim are longtime teachers of dog obedience classes at the Dog Training Club of ChampaignUrbana, and Jim serves as director of training for the club. Jim is an attorney, and breeds malamutes, owning 20 of them. Carole works at the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. She owns two dogs, a golden retriever named Robbie and a golden retriever/ standard poodle mix named Andi. The Afternoon Magazine host Celeste Quinn said Carole and Jim listen well and know the right questions to ask a caller to get to the root of a problem. “They’re also funny. Both of them have wonderful senses of humor, so having them in the studio is a lot of fun,” she said. “They’ve helped an awful lot of people and an awful lot of dogs.” Because of the July 4 holiday, Carole and Jim will be The Afternoon Magazine guests at 1:06 pm Thursday, July 2, instead of on Friday.

Innovative ideas for addressing energy needs and environmental protection are the subject of Purdue’s second installment of On the Radio—Sustainability—also narrated by Bogaev and scheduled for 6 pm Saturday, July 18. Among the good news: sidewalks that remove carbon dioxide from the air, a professor’s work to transform municipal solid waste into ethanol, the Subaru of Indiana automotive plant’s nonexistent landfill waste, and New York City sanitation engineers’ clean-up of dead zones in the East River using their own invented process that could revive oceans and rivers around the world.

Inside WILL Community Conversations on Economy Inform WILL’s Public Media Work Illinois Public Media will conduct a

series of community conversations this summer in an effort to learn about the effects of the economic downturn on the lives of residents in Champaign, Vermilion and Macon counties and to connect those in need with local services. The project is funded, in part, by a $9,000 grant from the National Center for Media Engagement. “It’s an effort to better understand people’s real lives so that Illinois Public Media can accurately reflect those realities and help marshal the resources of each community,” said Kimberlie Kranich, WILL’s director of community engagement. Television and radio producers, news reporters and others at Illinois Public Media are reaching out to direct service organizations and individuals in the counties. During June and July, they’ll conduct two conversations in each county, one with organizational leaders and another with the general public. “We’ll make the results public on our Web site and in a special series of radio programs in August,” Kimberlie said. “The Web site will also be a clearinghouse for those in need to connect with local organizations that provide direct services.” “After conducting some preliminary interviews, we know that more people are having trouble making ends meet, more people are accessing food banks, more people need help to stay in their homes and more people need workforce retraining,” Kimberlie said. WILL-AM news director Tom Rogers said the project is a unique chance to gather the thoughts and wishes of a wide variety of people in one process. “Normally reporters rely on private contacts with sources, press releases or even their own personal life experiences to gauge what’s important in their community and what needs their attention,” he said. “But this gives us a chance to stand back and ask uniform questions to a larger audience—not just of decision-makers, but of a cross section of people, all in one place to listen to each other.”

Old-Time Bluegrass and Gospel at Kickapoo Landing Come out to

Kickapoo Landing at Kickapoo State Park in Oakwood and enjoy old-time bluegrass and gospel music by Strings Attached on Friday, July 10, from 5:30-7:30 pm! The free outdoor concert, part of the regular Music at the Landing on Tuesday and Friday nights during the summer, is co-sponsored by Illinois Public Media in conjunction with its Kickin’ It at Kickapoo project. Bob Pearse, the group’s banjo player and the coordinator of the Kickapoo summer music series, said the Tuscola-based group began playing together in the mid-1990s and has managed to stay together. “Our core group is crazy about the music and really enjoys each other’s company,” he said. The group was created when Pearse, mandolin player Ron Korte and guitar player Don Thode met each other at the same Methodist church and discovered each played a stringed instrument. Bass player Bob Patterson is also a regular. The band loves playing at Kickapoo because of the wonderful natural scenery, the lake and the receptive crowd, said Pearse, who is one of three owners of the Kickapoo Landing concession. “People who come to hear the music are extremely appreciative of all the bands,” he

said. In good weather, as many as 300 people gather to hear the music. If it rains, the entertainment moves inside the Dockside Cafe. Other groups performing this summer include J.R. Country, Grass Roots Revival, Big Bluestem, Big Creek Guitar Band, High Cross Bluegrass, Timber Train, Stonecrik, Mitchells Bluegrass and Gospel, Joni Dryer, Deeper Blues and Sandunga. For a full schedule, visit the Kickapoo Landing Web site at kickapoolanding. com. Kimberlie Kranich, director of community engagement for Illinois Public Media, said WILL wants to encourage people to come out and enjoy Kickapoo. “We hope people will discover what a great resource we have in our backyard,” she said. In the Kickin’ It at Kickapoo project, 10 teens from the Danville Boys and Girls Club will experience the park and create videos to promote the park among their peers.

Watch for the new Patterns A new, compact Patterns is coming in August. Although Patterns is now avail-

able online, reader surveys show that many Friends of WILL still rely on the printed version of Patterns, especially for their TV listings. We hear you. We’re changing the size of the magazine to a 6-inch wide by 11-inch tall format to save printing and mailing costs. But we’re keeping the full TV listings. Other sections will benefit from spot color. Let us know how you like the new design.
