Ethan Maffey (“Listen Outside the Box,” August 23) overlooked an independent radio jewel: classical station KWAX-FM (Redmond 88.5, Bend 98.9, Sunriver 90.9, and heard worldwide at kwax.com). In an unpretentious, no-fuss format, KWAX DJs like Catriona Bolster and Rocky Lamanna serve up the riches of classical music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The University of Oregon holds KWAX’s license, but music-loving listeners and Oregon business underwriters completely fund the station.
KWAX is not influenced by evil corporations or record labels. And a slug of Schubert makes you feel great.
