Q1. What is a Program Episode?

A. An episode is one of the shows in a program series; it’s a unique show. Consider an episode as a web-based promotion of an upcoming show — kind of like a 30-second radio promo, only written for the web.

Program Episodes are an important part of the new KKFI website, which allows producers and programmers to promote their weekly radio show.

The website committee developed the Program Episode concept to allow each individual programmer or producer to promote his or her weekly show.


Q2. Why did KKFI decide to re-design the website?

A. Feedback from KKFI listeners and supporters generated a case for a new website. Also, a survey of community radio station websites indicated changes to the KKFI site could improve communications between various groups at the station — listeners, supporters, staff members, programmers, and volunteers. Most importantly, other station websites have active, updated content on music and public affairs shows.


Q3. What web browsers and browser versions are best to use for the KKFI.org website?

A.  A few KKFI website visitors have reported problems viewing the website in general and the ON-AIR GUIDE (Program Schedule) specifically.

KKFI recommends the following web browser versions.

Q7. What is Podcasting?

A podcast is a type of digital media consisting of an episodic series of audio radio, video, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a neologism derived from “broadcast” and “pod” from the success of the iPod, as podcasts are often listened to on portable media players. Taken from Wikipedia.
