Les Brown, Back in Town

Les Brown at KNOM, Oct. 2014

KNOM was blessed last month with a short but sweet visit from a person who may be familiar to longtime supporters and Static readers: Les Brown (pictured at top), the retired volunteer engineer whose depth of technical acumen and broadcast expertise — and many years of service in rural Alaska — make him an institution with this station.

Les volunteered time not only to visit but, also, to trade notes with current volunteer engineer Rolland Trowbridge. Les’ insights are always invaluable, but they’re most welcome as preparation continues for our Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios expansion and renovation project.

Thanks so much, Les!

    Blessed, sweet, depth of technical acumen, invaluable, an institution – I could add more words, but that definitely sounds like Les! Wonderful. This post lightens my heart.
