SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM KFAI's (90.3 FM/106.7) PROGRAM DIRECTOR (honored): The Program Committee has selected new programs for the Saturday, 9-11pm timeslot and Web Exclusive programs. For Saturday, “Soul Tools Radio” hosted by Toki Wright will be replacing RSE Radio. Wright is a locally based international hip-hop artist, music producer, and DJ, former Executive Director for the youth organization “YO! The Movement”, has conducted workshops on using music for community development with a focus on Hip-Hop in Uganda (with former Child Soldiers), Canada, China, Sierra Leone (hired by the US State Department and US Embassy in Freetown), and throughout the United States, and former director of the Minneapolis Mayor’s Youth Council (Sharon Sayles Belton), amongst other feats. Soul Tools Radio promises to highlight “great music of multiple genres from around the world through the lens of Hip-Hop by active members of the community,” and will inform “on issues that are of concern to youth, people of color, women, and other marginalized communities in a way that is authentic and current.” Soul Tools Radio will start on July 27th. We would like to thank Siddiq and his cadre of DJs for producing one of KFAI’s most popular programs for more than a decade.  RSE Radio's final airdate will be July 20th.
