It’s The Second Anniversary of The Conversation!
Tom Blackburn has been a resident of Kona for almost 11 years, and was an avid supporter of public radio back in his native North Carolina. He and Kate Bell helped kick off the fundraising for KHPH with an initial donation for the new transmitter. Since then, he has been HPR's e eyes and ears on the ground in Kailua-Kona and this past weekend was the first to see the completed new transmitter. For all he and everyone who made KHPH possible, thank you!
