R.I.P. Rockin’ Richard

“Rockin’ Richard” Grimes was the most popular DJ on KFOK. This from his online listeners, but even more so those who tuned into his show on 95.1FM in Georgetown. We lost Richard on March 29th, as he passed on.

Richard put his heart in his show as he did in everything he would do. More than anything else, you could say he cared. He cared about KFOK-LP, our local all volunteer radio station. He cared about Georgetown and Garden Valley. He cared about his friends, but most of all, he cared about his family.

RIP Richard, you have left a hole in all of our hearts, which you will occasionally sneak back into.

Keep on rockin’ it, Richard, we ❤ you!

    Hi, I’d like to do a follow-up monthly summary of the Georgetown Divide Public Utility District meetings. Timing would depend on whether the Best of Gold Country Culture follows my science program or not. It wouldn’t be long – likely 15-20 min.

    Hi, my name is David I’ve lived in Placerville since 1979. I moved up from Oakland where I listened to KFAT out of Gilroy and KPFA out of Berkley. I love community based radio that highlight local artists, bands , organizations and are supported locally. I would like to start a station in Placerville, or work together at expanding KFOK listeners by boosting their signal? I have very little know how but a lot of desire to highlight local talent and be a voice of the community much like KVMR is out of Nevada City. I would appreciate any input and expertise you may offer as to how to get started. Who should I solicit and how much capital does one need to get a station on the air?
    Sincerely yours David Cole. 622-xxxx

      David,
      If you have questions regarding putting up a radio station please contact me at Folkmuse@thefolkmuse.com. I can give you the information you are asking for.

      David,
      Contact me, Folkmuse@thefolkmuse.com. I can give you the information you are requesting as well as the organizations to contact. There is an opening for Low Power FM coming in October. You will have to have all of your ducks in a row so to speak. There are two open frequencies in Placerville as well as two in Coloma. Only a non-profit organization can receive a Construction Permit to build a non-commercial broadcast station.
