AfterFM - Fergus
Fergus show archive and podcasts on afterfm.com. I started volunteering at KGNU in 1978, before the station went on the air. My first job was as the engineer for our first science show, Tesseract, which was produced by Carla Selby, one of the original "founders" of the station. Ms Selby was also a program host on a classical music show, and I engineered the board for her, and for some other hosts. In 1981 I was hired as Program and Production Coordinator, also known as "The Paid Guy". Between 1981 and 1983 I did at least one version of every program on the schedule, as a result of hosts cancelling or not showing up. I helped with the remodel and design of studios at KGNUs homes at 2049 Broadway, Folsom and Walnut, and the current location. I have MC'ed "The Charles" all but a couple of times. Since 1983 I have been a volunteer DJ and engineer, hosting the Morning Sound Alternative, Old Grass, GNU Grass and Seolta Gael, and doing setups for Kabaret. My MSAs mostly feature acoustic music, including classical, ragtime, spirituals, classic jazz and blues, folk, and international. I favor the Old Grass, including the great bands of the formative years of the music, and of course Hot Rize and other locally-connected bands. I bring historical material as well as new things to Seolta Gael. All of the shows I host have featured live music performances, guests and interviews.
