kHEN will begin production in May on a new weekly podcast called Weekend Salida!  Weekend Salida will be designed to meet the needs of our many visitors for information on weekend entertainment.  It will be great for residents as well!

Each week Weekend Salida will discuss the options in and near Salida for daytime and nighttime entertainment.  The podcast will include live music performances, theatre, art shows and events.

During the podcast you will not only hear what is available but you will hear a sample of music by the musicians playing that weekend.  It will be an upbeat and entertaining podcast.  Don’t miss it.  Go to kHEN.org or tune in at WeekendSalida.com.

What is Podcasting and why is it Important to kHen and Salida?

Very simply put, podcasting is an audio recording that is made available over the internet in a number of web locations including but not limited to kHEN.org.

Podcasting supports Salida and the kHEN listening audience in three ways:

  1. We will be able to record a number of live shows from kHEN and make them available on demand over your smart phone, tablet or computer.  This way you can listen to a number of current kHEN shows at your convenience.  We will also save shows for some period of time so you can listen to past shows as well.  All live kHEN shows will not necessarily be recorded and podcast.  We will look to see what shows make sense to podcast.  Your opinions are welcome.  Just give us a call at 719-539-1069 or email us at info@khen.org.
  2. We will generate new shows that are designed to fit the needs of a particular audience or that work best in the podcasting format.  Some podcast shows will be broadcast on kHEN as well. One example is “Weekend Salida” which will be designed for our visitor audience.  This will be a short show that is recorded each week to let people know what is going on downtown that coming weekend.  We will put information regarding the podcast in all the Salida hotels and visitor oriented businesses so that visitors know how to get the podcast on their smart phone, tablet or computer.  This program is designed to promote Salida and support our local restaurants, venues and businesses.  
  3. When a show is Podcast it is available on line anywhere in the US and the rest of the World.  kHEN is a low power, 100 watt independent, noncommercial radio station and so our broadcast radius is relatively small.  For example, we do not reach as far as BV with our current wattage.  However, with podcasting we can reach anyone, anywhere, anytime.  What we care about as a community can now reach not only our own residents but also those who share our interests far and wide.  Who knows what possibilities could arise!
