Tonight's show was hosted by Lara Jones and Billy Palmer:

On the RadioActive Report (begins at 05:40):

  • Vote For 2 campaign, which promotes Latino voter registration in Utah, with Mayra Cedano from Communidades Unidas and Francisca Figueroa, Vote for 2 campaign coordinator.
Volunteer opportunities:
  • Real Food Rising’s annual Fall Celebration Fundraiser is just two weeks away, and they need lots of volunteers to help with check-in, serving food and other miscellaneous tasks. Volunteers will work for part of the time and then get to enjoy the rest of the event – including a farm-to-table dinner! Go to Real Food Rising’s Facebook page for more information on how to volunteer.

  • Tree Utah restoration plantings: These are both restoration plantings which are perfect to invite KRCL listeners who donated trees during Spring Radiothon to come plant the trees they helped make happen.
