There has been a void in my music listening over the last week. The Paia Youth and Cultural Center’s RadiOpio was knocked out during the storm last week. I talked to director Laura Civitello today and she forwarded this press release on the station’s status.
RadiOpio KOPO-LP 89.5FM, Maui’s non-commercial youth radio station was damaged by last week’s storm and is temporarily off the air while repairs are made. The station is a program of Paia Youth & Cultural Center and made available to youth, and those who work with youth between the ages of 9 and 21, by the State of Hawaii Office of Youth Services, the County of Maui, private foundations, and community donations. ” Our signal is normally heard in Paia, Upcountry, and parts of Haiku, Kihei, and Wailuku. We are still streaming on line at www.pyccmaui.org and have listeners tune in from around the country and the world. We look forward to being back up and running as soon as possible.” says Program Director Laura Civitello, ” Now is a good time to contact the station at 579-6400, if you’d like to get involved.”
We look forward to seeing the station back up and running soon!
