Music host Barry Hazle and his Saturday afternoon show The Shasta Serenade will retire from NSPR’s airwaves on Jan. 28.

Hazle has produced the two-hour Americana program since 2010 and has worked as an NSPR volunteer since the late 1990s.

"There’s no doubt in my mind that I will miss it," Hazle said. "But at the same time you go, ‘Wait a minute—how much energy are you going to put into this thing?’ You gotta realize, I’m going to be 70 years old this coming year. I want to do something different."

What’s Next for Saturday:

Beginning Feb. 4, NSPR General Manager Beth Lamberson will produce Cowgirl in the Control Room on Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m., in place of The Shasta Serenade. The title comes from her life path.

"I went to college to be a cowgirl and majored in animal husbandry at the College of Agriculture at Utah State University. I milked cows, sheared sheep, and assisted bringing thousands of newborn lambs into the world," she said. "After moving to Durango, Colorado, however, I discovered the nonprofit world through a ski program for people with disabilities and then, ultimately, public radio. Twenty-five years later, I draw a lot from my farm and construction work for my role as a general manager in public radio."

Expect to hear everything from Norah Jones to Bonnie Raitt and for Lamberson to carry on the tradition of Shasta Serenade by highlighting shows and musicians coming to the North State.

Staff Q&A: Morning Edition Host Sarah Bohannon

This winter, NSPR is lucky to have the assistance of a smart and spirited intern, Mazie St. Cin, a junior at Chico High School. Recently, Mazie sat down with host-reporter-producer extraordinaire Sarah Bohannon to get a glimpse behind the mic of our staff’s earliest riser.

Mazie St. Cin: Where are you from?
Sarah Bohannon: I’m from Biggs, which is a tiny little town about 30 minutes from Chico. You would drive through it if you’ve ever gone on the 99 South.

MSC: What brought you to Chico?
SB: I guess Chico was just like the big city for us. We would have to come here if we wanted to go to the mall or go to Target or anything like that. I moved to Santa Cruz for a while, went to community college, and then I just wanted to be back home with my family because my sister is six years younger than I am and she was still in high school. I felt like I was missing out on her life basically, so I applied to Chico State, got in, and moved to Chico.
