I’ve moved from The Ink Blot to Global Groove, allowing me to play world music from my travels in Africa and Europe as well as other wonderful contemporary world music. I also sub for The Orbit Lounge, Folkwaves, Let’s Jazz Out, Drive Time Jazz and any other program that fits my schedule. I do two Public Affairs Programs: Bird Talk (GV Audubon), and the Riverfront Program.

Having served in the Peace Corps in Kenya and Tanzania for three years, I grew to like the pulsating sounds of contemporary African music, but I also am interested in exploring music venues from around the world, especially Greek and French contemporary music, but also salsa and Latin American tunes. However, that is not the extent of the types of music I like. Included in my favorites: jazz, Americana, classical and Celtic.

Some of my favorite albums this year include Angelique Kidjoo's DJIN, DJIN, Diana Krall's LIVE IN PARIS, and the Putamayo collection, WORLD HITS.  I also like anything by Anita Baker, the Beatles, Mozart, John Coltrane, Yo Yo Ma, et al. 

The Admiral

The Admiral has been kicking around the Grand Valley for the last 25 years or so. He started volunteering at KAFM on Valentine’s Day in 2000. He began DJ’ing the Wednesday night jazz show and then moved onto a variety of other shows. About 15 years ago he joined forces with Captain Campbell on the Orbit Lounge on Friday mornings at KAFM. This partnership lasted until a couple of years ago when the decision was made to retire the Orbit Lounge spaceship. He then shifted gears and hopped in with the awesome Sunday morning crew on the Global Groove. He loves playing all types of music on Sunday mornings but is partial to Mexican ska and Brazilian reggae!
When not playing music at KAFM, he can be found helping out Roice Hurst Humane Society or falling off his mountain bike somewhere in the valley.

Tapping toes to tight guitar licks, reveling in rasta reggae, frolicking at hundreds of concerts and festivals, I surrender my all to music’s serenade.  Music and dance are the lifeblood of my creative efforts, the spark that tickles my fancy.  I love igniting that flame in others. For me, becoming a programmer at KAFM was an “occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy way.”  It was simply Sarahndipity.  

Music is an ongoing conversation into the mystery of my own self.  Beats of connectedness, rhythms of exultation, tones of dancing bliss, all riff together to create the soundtrack to life.  One of my great passions has become sharing that harmonious sound with KAFM listeners and our global community. My life’s purpose finally glistens with full awareness; I am meant to share a joyful loving heart with the world.
