Jeff Bochart – Board President
Good Vibes, Sunday 6-8pm

Since moving to the upper valler 30 years back, KHNS has been a major source of info. Back in those days of packing water and running a generator for power out at 39 mile, the times when we received a signal from KHNS was like having an “ear to the world”…it seemed like magic really.
So, at long last, it is high time to be a part of this sweet little radio station which truly has a life all of its own.

KHNS Board of Directors
Deb Potter

I’ve always loved music and pushing buttons..plus, my parents always told me I had a face for radio. I moved to Skagway in 2001 and got involved with KHNS in 2006. I truly am living the dream.

Tim Shields
Sound Waves Tuesday 8-10am

Self declared segue junkie. He can’t listen to a song without searching for the perfect tune to follow it. His weekly morning show is rambling, eclectic assemblage of sound which, on a good day, fits together seamlessly. He also gets to MC History Talk, which puts him under pressure to remember all those dates he forgot in high school.

All That's Jazz, Alternate Mondays 8-10pm

When I moved to Haines in 1987 I started hosting Swing Shift on Monday nights, which is now All That’s Jazz and stepped in as a DJ for any show whenever the opportunity arose. I love all kinds of music and KHNS in particular, the best radio station in the Universe!

Steve Scarrott
Alumnus

Steve worked with KHNS in pretty much every capacity, from offering his help as a volunteer to working as Program Director. His vast music knowledge meant his shows were interesting and fun to listen to and a popular feature of KHNS.

Dan Henry
Alumnus

“Good Vibrations” was my first volunteer show at KHNS in 1983, and in the ensuing years I’ve happily hosted every live show on the schedule, including programs near-forgotten like Soulful Shack, Matinee, Tsunami Warning, and Songs of Praise. It’s been my honor to bring a fraction of our incredible collection to the airwaves.

Terra Incognita: Sunday 2-4pm

Have been a DJ with Terra Incognita for nearly a decade, and my enthusiasm for World Music increases with every show. The greatest part is sharing it– it’s a privilege.
Am a constant explorer, keeping a sharp ear open for rare and unique sounds from around the planet.

Amelia Nash
Melodies and Memories - Sundays noon to 1pm, Fill-in shifts as needed

Since she started working at KHNS in 2007, Nash has pulled over 1,000 hours worth of air shifts. She has dj-ed every show on the KHNS schedule and loved every second of it. Music. It rules. Her least favorite recurring DJ nightmare is the one where all the controls are too far away and her voice won’t work.

Russ Lyman
Soundwaves, Flashbacks and Freshtracks

I came to Haines and KHNS in the summer of 1989, having DJ’ed since ’86 at a couple other stations down south. Addicted to mixing a smooth flow drawn from the vast cosmos of music, I’ve enjoyed spinning a variety of genres over the years, with a special fondness for world music, which I slip into shows wherever possible.

Cherri Price
Soundwaves, Monday 8-10am

Music is alive and continues to fascinate me with its power to create deeply felt moods and attitude. I usher in Mondays with a flirty mix of softish rock and soulful blues with hopscotch genre suprises here and there. Haines has been my year round home since 1994, keeping me on a short leash with its mountain spring drinking water, local radio station, library, art scene,picnic spots, fishing holes and secret gardens.

Hiatus

I started hosting shows in 1999, living in Haines for ten years and now a full-time resident of Skagway.I love music and giving back to my community which, to me, is all of the Upper Lynn Canal. I believe that to make this world a better place, we should touch those around us in a positive way…what better way than music!

Douglas “Cowboy Doug” Smith
Back Country, 1-3pm

Cowboy Doug done growed up in England, with his Maw and Paw playing Jim Reeves and Glen Campbell to him from an early age. After brief flirtations with indie music and hip hop, he first came to Alaska in 1997 and the love affair with Country music began again, this time with a twanging vengeance. Cowboy Doug is proud to bring the English brogue to the American airwaves of  KHNS. As the Upper Lynn Canal has experienced, he has a tendency to talk rubbish and laugh at his on-air mistakes. These are many, but apparently tolerated by by his generously affectionate audience. Yee-haw, indeed.
