KGOU.org Becomes Secure
Today KGOU.org is gaining one little letter in its web address -- 'https' instead of just 'http'. That one letter means our news and other content online has an added layer of security to discourage hackers and make searching for news topics better. Rest assured that KGOU.org is safe to browse, and of course our donation forms -- and donors' personal information -- have been secure for years. If you notice any long-term problems with this upgrade, let us know at membership@kgou.org

NPR Series: Other Side of Anger
Anger is often seen as a destructive force, something to be avoided. But the emotion generally identified as anger, and the response that follows, can be different from one person to the next, and one culture to another. This NPR News series has explored how anger can be a connecting, positive force for good. Next week's reports will show us how to reduce anger in our lives -- listen to Weekend Edition and Morning Edition to catch new stories.

Coming up on the KGOU Sunday Radio Matinee :
