I'm Catherine Allen, a long time supporter of public radio. I've lived in Nevada City and been a KVMR member since 2001. I have done some travelling around the world, most recently Turkey,and love it. When home, I fulfill my travel dreams researching old and new world musical styles. Although pronounciation of names is often challenging, the sound is easy to read. I am member of, and DJ for, the Women's Collective here at the station and host South of the Border, in rotation, every other month on the 4th Monday from 10-12 AM. I am a lifelong learner, love painting, yoga, hiking, swimming, and good friends.
