Dear Affiliates and Listeners:
This is Jason "Jake" Longwell. I am posting this to the CTS website on behalf of Serena (AKA The Radio Kid), as we wanted to let you all know what's going on.
Unfortunately, Serena's computer crashed last week while she was attempting to put Radio Serena together. This appears to be a hard disk issue. The computer will not boot back up at all, and she has been told by a few people that she may need to buy a whole new computer. For those of you who don't know, both Serena and I are visually impaired, and are on fixed disability incomes. We do our radio shows as a labor of love, and we are responsible for all our operating expenses. Right now, she doesn't have the money to buy a new PC. But, she is hoping to find someone who can repair/restore the hard drive so she can retrieve all of the files that were/are on it, and hopefully resume radio program production.
Radio Affiliates: For the time being, Serena is asking you to please run old episodes of Radio Serena and/or Clearing the Static, depending on which program your station is airing. She is hopeful that this hiatus will not be a long one, and that new shows will resume as soon as possible. She is asking for your patience and understanding. Needless to say, this was something that was not foreseen.
As her computer is down, Serena is not able to receive or respond to emails, either. So, if you need to get in touch with her, please contact me directly, and I will pass along any messages. Or, email me and ask me for her home phone, and I will give it to you in a private email response.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused to you and your radio station. We both thank you for your understanding and continued support. Any further updates on this situation will be posted here.
