Getting KUER while serving in Iraq
I was glad to see KUER FM 90 in the iTunes Store. Now staying up today in with the events in Utah is a bit easier, while I am Serving with the Utah National Guard, here in Iraq. SFC Glen W. Burr
One of the best podcasts
I came across this show after hearing about Kerry Jackson's undying love for Doug Fabrizio - and after listening, I can't see how anyone can't fall for the guy. This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I also subscribe to some highly rated podcasts (NPR's Fresh Air, This American Life, etc.), and this show is definitely on par with them, and I highly encourage anyone who is a fan of those shows to give RadioWest a listen.
This show keeps me awake for long drives between Montana and Utah. Doug Fabrizio is a fantastic host who can make any topic fascinating. I've lived in Virginia, Washington, D.C., Wyoming, Utah, and Montana and this is the best radio show on any of the NPR stations I've listened to, hands down. I am so glad this is available as a podcast because where I live there is no broadcast NPR. Even though I download a ton of other podcasts, I hardly ever listen to them. Only this one. I don't know why I even keep the other ones on my list... Thanks Doug, KUER, and PRI!
