Our Board of Directors
Al Chidester, Chair
Known to local music aficionados as “Fiddlin’ Big Al,” Mr. Chidester hosts “Fiddlin’ Al’s Old Time Liberal Revival & Barn Dance” on KRFP. Though often mistaken for him, he is no relation to Uncle Sam. Email:
Cass Davis, Vice Chair
Katherine brings with her thirty-nine years of teaching experience and being a member and representative of a strong union. She has a wide range of interests, which include but are not limited to the arts, music, the outdoors, travel, mind-body-spirit connection, politics, and reading a wide range of genres. She has served as a volunteer for Hospice of Spokane for fifteen years and is passionate about current issues that affect human welfare.
Steve McGehee, aka to long-time KRFP listeners as Dr. Steve and the Barefoot Elitist, is a lifelong political agitator, writer, grass roots organizer and, in varied incarnations a Berkeley graduate, university instructor, bartender, cross country ski instructor, chauffeur, map maker, collector car wrecking yard owner and all-around troublemaker and ne’er do well. He first became a Radio Free Moscow board member in the early days before the station was even broadcasting, serving in that capacity for three years, two of which he acted as Chair. Looking back, he has spent more time than he would like to remember as a City Councilman, board member of too many do-gooder non-profits, and an unsuccessful candidate for the Washington State Legislature and Whitman County Commission. He currently has seven books in print, all available on Amazon. He slavishly adores his wonderful wife Katherine and his two superb daughters, Heather and Caitlyn. Foreign travel has become a passion and Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town is a second home. Wherever he travels, he tries to avoid other gringos at all costs. Seemingly out of sync with his radical pedigree, he loves football, beers and shots with his frowzy assortment of pals, poker, the occasional cigar and top down cruising in old convertibles. As retired folks are rumored to do, he has also given up tennis and skiing for cooking from his large vegetable garden. And now, having been informed by Big Al and Cass that the anarcho-syndicalist, Wobbly contingent on the KRFP Board is in need of old fresh blood, Steve has come out of retirement and it sounds like fun.
Board meetings are usually the second Wednesday of the month. Call 208-892-9300 for the location.
