Blackouts Radio Event Of The Year, While Tuttle Award Goes to Jenny Michael

Written by on December 8, 2019

The radio event of the year was definitely the October utility-mandated blackouts, while a longtime Wednesday Music Magazine host won KVMR 89.5 FM’s Bill Tuttle Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Being a part of this radio station has certainly been one of the best parts of my lifetime,” a smiling Jenny Michael told over 300 KVMR broadcasters and volunteers at the station’s holiday banquet at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City.
She’d just been named the 2019 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement honors.
“Achievement? I’d call it a gift really, that almost 28 years ago I was given an opportunity to become a part of this remarkable and magical radio station,” she added. “As I look out now at so many beautiful faces, I do so with both admiration and adoration, and my heart is full.”

Michael has twice served on the station’s Program Committee, been in charge of music sales at the KVMR Celtic Festival since it began, co-produced several Nevada County Fair broadcasts, hosted her son doing an All Request Beatles hour for about a decade and, along with Connie Coale, hosted the first on-air broadcast from the station’s new building in 2015.
“Jenny, your service to this station, your devotion to this station, the quality music and interviews you provide, and the many, many hours you have given us over the years are treasured,” KVMR Program Director Steve Baker said in announcing the award

BLACKOUT & FUNDRAISER
Meanwhile, the station honored broadcasters and staff who contributed in dozens of roles during the October blackouts, which dramatically coincided with one of the most successful membership drives in station history.

YubaNet co-founder Pascale Fusshoeller was honored for being a “KVMR Folk Hero For Excellence in Reporting and Listener Service” during the month for her top-of-the-hour stories and analysis of the blackouts, while Chief Engineer Dave “Buzz” Barnett received a “Superhero” award (including a cape) for his efforts to keep the station on the air during what originally was supposed to be his vacation.

–Sunday’s 5 p.m.  “Classics Declassified” classical music host Charles Atthill.
