Plan on joining us for a hot buffet lunch on Saturday. This is a very good lunch and the cost is only $8.00.
We are fortunate to have Mr. Kenneth Mason as our featured Program speaker. A native Minnesotan, he has studied radio engineering at Brown Institute and worked at stations KFAI and KMOJ. At Minnesota Public Radio's KSJN he was on the crew of the early Prairie Home Companion live shows. He also helped create and co-hosted the Jazz Image with Leigh Kamman. He's been President of the Minnesota DX Club. Based in Washington DC since 1980 he has also done radio research and training in Africa. A competent speaker, he will make this a very interesting program!
