KRCL #HandWashChallenge 

If not the ABC song, then what song do you wash your hands to? If you need help washing those hands, we recommend using lyrics from one of your favorites songs – if the ABC song just isn’t cutting it anymore. Visit All you need is the song title and artist to generate your own custom handwashing poster:

  • KRCL is using Truth Hurts by Lizzo and Heavy Metal Drummer by Wilco.
  • Give it a try and tag us on social media to let us know your handwashing jam. You may just end up with some KRCL swag!

The ChocolatierOpening March 13th 

Graham Brown, Artistic Director, SONDERimmersive was back after Nick Burns and Billy Palmer got a sneak peek of The Chocolatier. A multi-sensory dance and theater experience that turns a functioning business (The Chocolate Conspiracy) into a theater venue where only 30 audience members at a time are invited to tour the shop, and enter the life and mind of The Chocolatier.

Utah Wild, owners and team members, Mackenzie Perkett and Brooke Stanislawski talk about the sport of Womxns Ultimate Frisbee and Utah's first Western Ultimate League team.  

Women in Film Day at the Wasatch Mountain Film Festival: April 3rd

Shandi Kano shared her experience as a Utah film maker:

  • Shandi is a Salt Lake City based film and video producer who believes that the common denominator in all meaningful creative work is the story you’re telling and why you’re telling it. She recently finished work on her first feature length production, “Where Forever Is Now.” Set to release this year, the film is based in and features Utah’s own Zion National Park. A small version of this film is now live in Zion’s Visitor Center. She enjoyed six years producing for ESPN and the X Games

Nate Wharton, Development Director at Wasatch Mountain Arts was also in the studio to talk about the film festivals mission and schedule.
