The new exhibit at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts is an interactive Drawing Lab, which gives visitors the opportunity to experiment with different forms of mark making. Building from the idea that drawing is a fundamental human instinct of expression, the Lab considers the formal and informal ways we follow that instinct.
Drawing Lab is open through August 25
Since the 1970s the Writers at Work Conference has been a yearly opportunity for local writers to access coaching, workshops, and useful information about approaching the publishing realm. Board member Rachel Marston, and teacher/former board member/award-winning local poet Katharine Coles discuss the event – how it creates community and and gives writers a fresh set of eyes to develop their work.
The Writers at Work Conference will be held June 5-9 at the Alta Lodge
We’re sad to say that Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founder of The Doors, passed away today in Germany. He was 74.
In addition to his time with The Doors, Manzarek played in many other bands, recorded a rock adaptation of Carmina Burana with Phillip Glass, and worked with Echo & the Bunnymen, X, Iggy Pop and more. He will be missed
On this day in 1967 the BBC previewed a new album from The Beatles. Just a little something, you may have heard of it…
It’s been said that Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys broke down and cried when he heard this record, he was so devastated it wasn’t his own creation. (Although Paul McCartney has said, in turn, that the orchestral arrangements on Pet Sounds were an inspiration.)
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is KRCL’s featured album of the day.

Jorge Fierro of Frida Bistro and Rico has taken up the cause of The Burrito Project. Based out of his kitchens, the SLC chapter of the national effort brings on volunteers a few days each week – one crew to make hundreds of rice & bean burritos, and another crew to distribute them to the homeless via bicycle. It’s a nutritious, delicious, and surprisingly easy way to do some real good in our community.
Thank you to everyone that took our recent programming survey. We appreciate and value your feedback.
It has been a little more than a year since KRCL began broadcasting the nationally syndicated program, World Cafe. The show launched with mixed reviews and although many KRCL listeners love the program, most feel that we should use that time for more locally-curated music programming.
Effective Monday, May 13th, KRCL will no longer air the syndicated program, World Cafe. Fans of the show can still stream it online and can find a link to the show here.
Your feedback and continued support is vital to 90.9fm KRCL!
