Don Woods served as the Chief Engineer and Morning Host for KUWR   (1984-2007). 

When I arrived in October 1984, the drives were once a year. My first two years at WPR (84-86) I did not participate in the fund drive, for I was the Chief Engineer and only air staff and students took part.

I miss my time at KUWR, working with Frank Imhoff, Don Woods, Charles Pelkey, Lee Christian, and Audrey Waldock. There was Pete Buchin the opera guy, and Tom Wilhelm with “Ranch Breakfast,” amazing even back then, Chris Heck and Dave Worley, also a few of my favorite KUWR-ers, and Marci, the Morning Edition host.

The First WPR Website

As Wyoming Public Radio, i.e. Wyoming Public Media, celebrates its 50th anniversary, it has been involved with the ever changing online world for more than a third of its existence.

Public Radio, KUWR, first developed a website in 1997-98. It was created by Grafikat Design Company. It was a simple site, like many at the time, featuring links to programming information, weather and road condition, the University of Wyoming, and most importantly, membership pledge and associated gift levels.

We wake up and go to bed listening to WPR. In the morning we can get local and national news, at night it is frequently BBC! We learn about what is happening in far away places like  the reports from Ofeibea Quist-Arcton. Even though we live in Wyoming, WPR enables us to be up to date on world wide events! We love WPR!

A love note from Diane and Scott Seville, Casper WY.

For over 30 years for us Wyoming Public Radio has been a central part of living in Wyoming.  Morning Edition has been our close neighborhood friend joining us each morning for breakfast to stimulate conversation and share the news, the issues, and raise awareness on the state of the state, nation, and world.

I love Wyoming Public Radio – and I couldn’t live without it. It’s on in my house 24/7 – and at my sheep barn. It not only insures that I have the most intelligent sheep in Laramie – it also keeps those nasty predators away!

WPR is one of our strongest bastions of democracy. Those who can afford it, pay; those who can't or won't , don't; but all can listen free & all can benefit from this shared resource.

Shortly after I first moved to Cheyenne (from New York and Vermont) in 1978 I asked at the local news store if they carried the New York Times; the clerk, admittedly young, asked: "Is that a newspaper?"

I had the opportunity to live in Wyoming for some years, first in Mammoth Hot Springs, and later, in Jackson. While working in the mornings, I got hooked on listening to Morning Music, a wonderful and ecclectic mix of music you just don't hear on any other station. I continued to listen into the afternoon, to Writer's Almanac and BBC News. I found the information provided there to be top quality and not biased or tainted by commercial interests.
