KKFI 90.1FM Joins the Peace Party

Last Monday morning, a small group of us braved the’ late in the year’ snow storm to make our way to the KKFI 90.1 radio station on Main Street in Kansas City, Missouri.  I met Jeff Humfeld, producer for the ‘Jaws of Justice’ radio show, at a community event in March.  He mentioned the program and asked if I would do an interview about the Community Mediation Center.  Several weeks later I was contacted by Margot Patterson for a pre-interview conversation.  At that time we decided to do the interview live on the air as opposed to a pre-recording.  I felt a little nervous as I arrived at the station, but was put at ease by efficient and friendly people and a comfortable atmosphere.  Keith Brown announced the interview and we were off!  Early on, Mike Murphy, chief operator, slid a piece of paper toward me that suggested I “get closer to the mic”.  With Margot’s graceful efforts the interview went well.  The ‘Jaws of Justice’ program highlights efforts that “seek out alternatives to the present practice that puts the law before justice, alternatives that are restorative to those that have been wronged and just to those that have offended.” (from the website).  ‘Jaws of Justice’ is a forum, run by dedicated volunteers, that invites community members to engage in conversation about concepts of justice that effect us all.  Welcome to the Peace Party!
