Spreading the Jive: A new story by Central Oregonian/Madras Pioneer Editor Tony Ahern out today. See more from Tony & me, the Radio Guy here.
We are experiencing a fairly major domino-effect of software problems. Please hang with us while we massage/exorcize the boogaloos. Signal on air and web may be choppy in the days ahead.
…the stream is down, and so is the KJIV signal. We’re waiting for service tech to drive up to mountaintop and kick the hamster (figuratively speaking…).
Note little green tree between house and Jim over his left shoulder…
…and same little tree on right in foreground.
Donations are still coming in from Jivers – THANK YOU!
UPDATE 11nov: The “CAMP” fire has now burned 100,000+ acres, over 6500 homes and 300 businesses in the area, with at least 23 people dead and roaring on with no signs of slowing its progress. Thanks to many Jivers who have chipped in the the Stanley’s plight (below). Don’t let their $1000 GOFUNDME goal dissuade you!—They lost everything.
Oh no, another conflagration in Cali, this time in Paradise…literally— A fast-moving killer wildfire, dubbed the “Camp” fire (for some lame reason…) wiped out the little town of Paradise, California… IN ONE DAY! The whole town is GONE! BURNT TO THE GROUND. At this writing, over 2000 structures have been razed and some 15,000 structures are still threatened! This fire is barely a day old and over 70,000 acres are toast, with 5 humans dead…so far.
Within 3 hours of it’s start, long time JiveRadio supporters Jim & Lani Stanley evacuated their house with their 2 dogs and barely the clothes on their backs. Their house was one of the 2000 leveled by the fire. Everything of theirs is gone.
Friends have set up a GoFundMe page for them. Any show of help from you will make them feel like they have friends out there. Do what you can here [GOFUNDME] and tell ’em to keep on Jivin’ with love!
