Tune into KUR beginning at 11:30 a.m. for a 2 hour and 30 minute community service block of programming. At 11:30 a.m., it's another edition of "The People Chronicles." In this edition, Jackie gets to meet Stacy Butler and we learn how Stacy reinvents herself after years of addiction, crime, prison, and ultimately redemption. Then at 11:50 a.m., Mike sits down with Lydia Chaudhry, organizer of Philadelphia's inaugural "Philly Veg Fest" which was a raging success. Lydia will talk about how things went, how the move across the nation is towards more of a vegetarian-friendly diet, and plans for next year's festival. At noon, it's "The Cyberden" with Mike McVicar, exposing local and obscure artists followed at 1 p.m. by "This Way Out," the international gay/lesbian radio magazine and at 1:30 p.m. "Fifty One Percent," the women's issues magazine. KUR is your community service radio station providing diversity and multiculturalism in a wasteland of corporate radio boredom. Stream us live at
