Aloha KKCR 'Ohana,

We have received the very sad news that Richard Segan, host of One World Radio on KKCR since 2011 passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Richard was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

His informative and entertaining program One World Radio was about how we are all connected. As he stated in his original program proposal: "This show is about the 3 Cs – Connection, Communication, Co-operation. All people are connected. If we communicate, with this connection, we can co-operate to make the world the place we want it to be."

Each week, on Monday afternoons, he shared the music he loved, introducing us to music from all over the world including vintage Thai pop, afro-beat and deep roots reggae. He was a knowledgeable advocate of world music. His personal stories about his connections to the musicians he featured entertained and informed us. He had a special love for Sun Ra and each week played the "Cosmic Corner" featuring Sun Ra's music. His son Max often visited him on Kauaʻi and would co-host One World Radio with Richard. Our sincere condolences go out to Max.

Before he moved to Kauaʻi, Richard was a world music programmer at WHUS in Connecticut. He was also the Tour Manager at Makauwahi Cave Reserve.

From Lida Pigott Burney manager at Makauwahi Cave Reserve: "Richard began giving tours on Sundays at the cave in 2012. To that point we had only been able to muster enough volunteer help to open one day per week, but through his energetic efforts, we were able to eventually keep the cave open four hours per day, four days per week. Richard was incredibly devoted, showing up on time and pouring his heart out with his dramatic delivery and infectious enthusiasm. Counts of visitors in recent years suggest that Richard had been giving tours for up to 15,000 people per year. Since he began informing and entertaining the public with his many wonderful stories about the cave, Richard probably gave tours for more than 50,000 visitors. Besides the interesting facts he related about the oral traditions and research findings at the cave, Richard also had his own stories and jokes, about everything from the "disappearing algae" to the mysterious artwork on the walls. ...At Makauwahi Cave, Richard will be a permanent part of the legends of this place, alongside Keahikuni Kekauonohi, LaFrance Kapaka, Pila Kikuchi, and others who have gone before."

He achieved his goal for One World Radio - to "turn listeners on". We will always remember our cosmic sonic adventurer Richard for his enthusiasm, kindness, wonderful stories and love of music.
MAHALO NUI
TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO OUR BIRTHDAY PARTY
AND HELPED US CELEBRATE 20 YEARS OF BROADCASTING ON KAUAʻI!!

KKCR FEATURED PROGRAMMER
DJ JAH CO
The G Spot • Fridays • 10pm -Midnight


DJ Jah Co & 'Ainalani (Shave Ice)


KKCR asked DJ Jah Co some questions about his new KKCR program & volunteering at KKCR

Describe your background, work experience, education, etc. (Basically please introduce yourself):
I grew up outside of Philly and surfing on the Jersey shore. Earned a bachelor of science in journalism and art history at Syracuse Universtity and played lacrosse on the 3X national championship team. Moved to the north shore of Oʻahu because of a passion for big waves. Been teaching in Hawaii's public schools for 25 years in many capacities, including HI state science teacher of the year in 2004, most recently a substitute at Kapaʻa H.S., which has allowed me to be an avid traveller- surfing, snowboarding and visiting sacred sites around the world. Moved to Kauaʻi in 2011 following a dream to start a family and farm, caring for the ʻaina and Haloa (kalo/taro). Happily married 11 years to Chie. Our daughter, ʻAinalani is KKCR's youngest aspiring programmer, "Shave Ice," following in the footsteps of other programmer offspring, "Golden Eagle" and "Ice Cream." I feel very appreciative for all of these blessings and life on Kauaʻi, so always try to give back somehow.

What inspired you to volunteer at KKCR? Did you have any radio experience prior to volunteering with KKCR?
I love music and have always aspired to be a DJ, buying vinyl and making mix tapes for friends and girlfriends back in the day. I love KKCR and am a long-time listener to the Grateful Dead Show on Psychedelic Saturdays on Oʻahu. When I moved to Kauaʻi, I became a more avid listener, donating every fund drive to a different favorite program. I started volunteering, answering phones and bringing food for fund drives, then Dove asked me if I wanted to be a programmer. I had little broadcasting experience, and I wasn't sure I would have the time to commit, but now, it's a passion.

What are you favorite programs on KKCR?
There is such a great variety of programming. I have no TV at home or CD player in my car, so I just keep it locked on KKCR at home and in the car, sometimes stream and school. My appreciation and listening grew for Hawaiian music every morning w/ great personalities (Sandy Swift, Sistah Lei, Aunty Maria, Braddah Lou), informative talk w/ Felicia, Jonathan, Jimmy, Surf Stories, Kaʻiulani and Donovan, even the syndicated shows. I get music and laughs w/ the Bluegrass show, the Pupule show, and DJ T.O.D. I enjoy the jazz and reggae 2X/week, Swampdaddy's and One world radio. I try not to miss Evolve w/ Dove, Jungle Jukebox w/ Thomas, and Psychedelic Saturdays. Sundays are nice, too, especially when Mose and Maren come back. I hear new stuff on Mu Radio and from Diamond and Allisun. I often find myself staying in my car just to keep listening. Can't choose just 1 - variety is the spice of life! Just keep it locked on KKCR.

How has your volunteer experience been? Do you have any advice for people who aren't sure if they would like to volunteer?
My experience w/ KKCR continues to be great. My advice - if you feel called, DEFINITELY VOLUNTEER! Everyone in the KKCR ʻohana has so much ALOHA. There are so many different ways to contribute and KKCR is here to serve. I am currently working on reviving the Teen Radio Show on Saturdays to increase our youth involvement and listenership, training teens to broadcast, program, record and engineer.

Describe your show "The G Spot":
Ecclectic grooving, rocking and mellow nostalgic flashbacks. My last show covered the last 7 decades. I 'm big on the 70s, some 60s, 80s and 90s and recent. My parents instilled in me a love for (live) music, going to concerts of all sorts since a young age in the 70s and 80s, which definitely made an impression and continued in life. I remember seeing Beatlemania, KISS (2X!), ELO, Diana Ross, Billy Joel, BeeGees, the Spinners, and the Stylistics with them. Then concerts on my own: Police, U2, Elvis Costello, the Cult, the Cure, Rolling Stones, Santana, Grateful Dead, Allmann Bros., lotsa reggae and punk rock shows. I grew up in an East coast Italian family, which meant Friday w/ Frank and Sunday w/ Sinatra at home. Dad loves jazz and soul, my older brother was a college DJ and I am a multi-instrumentalist, so all of this influences my show, and I continue to be inspired by fellow programmers and sometimes I do themes. Try listen!
