Annual Financial Audit Completed
KGOU undergoes an annual audit of financial records in order to comply with requirements of our annual Community Service Grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. An independent auditing firm has completed its work for the most recent fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.

Summarizing some of the numbers pertinent to KGOU donors, membership donations for FY20 totaled $557,086, about one percent more than the previous fiscal year. Vehicle donations accounted for just over $30,000 of that total. Thank you, KGOU donors, for your support!

Sunday Radio Matinee:
IQ2US: "Is America Still a Model for the World?"
In the wake of a not-so-peaceful transfer of power, can America remain the world's model for democracy? Have months of strife across the country and related political violence destroyed America's credibility as a leader in condemning oppression and authoritarianism? Or have the nation's institutions held under pressure and demonstrated democracy's strength and resilience? Intelligence Squared U.S. presents a spirited debate this Sunday, Jan. 31 at 12 p.m.
Kanaval: Haitian Rhythms and the Music of New Orleans
Deep French and African influences landed in New Orleans 200 years ago when 10,000 free and enslaved people fled the uprising in the French colony of Saint Domingue in what is now Haiti. This multi-cultural DNA is reflected in the food, architecture, art, and most notably, the music of New Orleans. A 3-part series, Kanaval: Haitian Rhythms and the Music of New Orleans is KGOU's Sunday Radio Matinee on Feb. 7, 14 and 21 at 12 p.m. We'll compile all three hours on Feb. 28 from 1 - 4 p.m.
Just for fun...
Terry Gross Returns to The Tonight Show... Tonight!
Tonight Fresh Air host and co-executive producer Terry Gross will be returning for an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. While Terry has been on the show several times, this week’s show will be recorded remotely -- just the way she likes to conduct her own interviews, as she explains in this 2017 appearance.

Congratulations to Our Winners
In our last issue we gave away CDs of the Capitol Steps' most recent (and sadly, likely the last) album of fun, Make America Grin Again, to winners in our drawing: Jim, David, Vina, and Glenn. Enjoy!
