Kathleen Martindale, a long-time volunteer at KGNU, talks about her path to Boulder from Harlem, New York, via Kansas City Art Institute and Pratt Institute, where she studied industrial design. She talks about her early exposure to art, music, and culture in New York City, which led to a lifelong passion for the arts. Upon moving to Boulder, she was drawn to the forward-thinking and out-spoken nature of KGNU. Heeding a call to help move the station from a cottage owned by the Harvest House to the Aristocrat, she started volunteering in the late 70s or early 80s, not long after the station went on the air. She talks about having served on the board for two terms, as well as conceiving the idea for the plant-sale fundraiser and answering phones, among other things. She also mentions working at Neusteter’s in Denver and Ferrell Reed in Boulder, as well as her work as a salvage artist and her interest in dance and politics.
