Thanks to a grant from the Collections Care program at 4Culture, awarded in December 2017, we can begin the process of digitizing some of our audio interview collection that goes back to the 1980s.

Current interviews, and some of the interviews that were syndicated to as many as 18 stations weekly during the heyday of our broadcasting era, are accessed via the American Prophets webpage.

Also, interviews that aired as part of a short-lived series that aired locally on KBCS-FM are still available here. There is also a post about it here. (Numbering systems differed between programs that aired on KMTT (The Mountain) and other stations, like KZOK, which called the program the Sunday Times and Sunday Morning Magazine on KKNW before our non-profit was formed, but the numbering system merged a few years into the project which began in 1990. Some tapes have been discarded.)
