Alternative Therapy was preempted by the Humboldt County Quake of 2010. Starting early (at 6:45PM) – I did manage to play some music and report on the quake until 7:01PM when the UPS power failed (the studio operates on back-up batteries for approximately 2 1/2 hours – the transmitter site has it’s own back-up generator). KHSU went dark for 40 minutes until HSU Plant Ops started the generator for the Theater Arts Building.  I then went back on the air – and in between some music – interviewed various public officials and members of the KHSU’s staff. An interesting night of public radio to say the least…
