Short Features

Short public affairs programs played throughout the KVNF program schedule:

Confessions of a Heavy Thinker: 12:30pm on Sundays, 2:30pm on Thursdays, Angus Stocking

Confessions of a Heavy Thinker is a short feature created by Angus Stocking, whose intention is to loosen the listener's grip on fixed beliefs, so that more pleasant beliefs can be selected and implemented. In addition to Confessions, Angus also publishes essays on his blog, OtherBS.com, and has contributed essays to BoingBoing.net. His Kindle ebook, also titled Confessions of a Heavy Thinker, is available on Amazon for a very reasonable sum.

As the Worm Turns:

“As the Worm Turns” is part of the “Free Range Radio” show that airs every Monday morning on KVNF.  It features an interview with local gardener Lance Swigart at about 10:05 am. Tips and tidbits from these interviews are posted here, and our listeners can make comments and ask Lance questions in the comments forum below.

Lance Swigart lives nine miles outside of Hotchkiss. He grows 90 percent of his food and harvests 100 percent of his seeds from a garden he grows above 6,000 feet elevation. He has been building his incredibly beautiful garden space for the last 25 years, and is a wealth of information about all kinds of gardening from grains to beans to fruits and vegetables, even nuts. Enjoy these photos taken by Suze Smith, a local photographer who has worked on this documentary for the past year in hopes that it will highlight the value of the organic food and sustainability movement in the irreplaceable North Fork Valley.
