JustPaul sits down with Maryanne Fallman, local homeless den-mother of sorts, to discuss her inside knowledge of the plight of the homeless in Del Norte County…


Every so often, Joan Miles and Jamie Yarbrough take an hour on a Sunday and rant about something. It’s The Occasional Joan Miles Show, and in this, the premier episode, Joan absolutely goes off on the “evils” of Socialism, for some reason…oh, well, it’s community radio.


Say what you will about Supervisor Roger Gitlin, he IS a great interview! Here’s the latest from SRG with JustPaul on Community Service, in which Roger calls for the dissolution of the Cannabis Working Group, among other things…enjoy!

Local True North Community Organizer, Mike Thornton, is striving to change our community…with understanding and smart policy! In this interview he explains the latest efforts to refocus Del Norte on the issue of homelessness by getting the BOS and City Council to pledge to END homelessness, not simply mitigate it. He’s garnered the work and support of a committee of locals who feel the same GD way!


Just when you thought the political climate in Del Norte was going to cool for the summer, Jesse Davis launches a recall effort against Supervisors Roger Gitlin and Bob Berkowitz. Jesse sat down on Father’s Day with JustPaul and Sam Strait for TWO interviews…and here they are! First, it’s Snowflakes, our liberal talk hour; then it’s Conversations with Sam, the un-liberal talk hour. But BOTH shows have the same guest: Jesse Davis! Dig in…



The only place on the dial to get indepth political talk: KFUG Community Radio (hey! that’s US!!)…here are the two most recent interviews to add to the political playlist: First, from Community Service w/JustPaul, it’s a conversation with District 4 incumbent, Gerry Hemmingsen. He talks about his years on the board and why he wants at least one more spin; then it’s a conversation with contender Dave Mason from Sam Strait’s Conversations with Sam. Dave discusses his vision for the future of Del Norte with Sam and Angelina Countess-Bieber.



As the political seasoning heats up in Del Norte County, KFUG does what it can to stir the pot, hosting candidates and incumbents alike. Here are TWO interviews that contribute to the local politics goulash: The first is with Del Norte County Supervisor, District Three, Chris Howard. He appeared on Community Service w/JustPaul and talked about his time in office and just why he’d like even MORE time in office. The second interview is with Jake Smith, who is seeking to unseat Chris Howard on the Board of Supervisors. He joined Sam Strait for one of the Conversations with Sam, which airs Sundays at 3pm on KFUG Community Radio…enjoy!




At the January 23rd meeting of the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors, a contentious vote ended a 45 day ban on commercial cannabis…here are TWO interviews from that week’s Community Service w/ JustPaul. The first is with Supervisor Lori Cowan; the second is with Jesse Davis, Chair of the Cannabis Working Group, the people tasked with fashioning our local cannabis ordinances. Suffice it to say, neither of these two are happy with the latest happenings!
