Now on Fridays at 6: Day 6 from the CBC

At the end of 2011, KALW piloted Day 6, a new end-of-week current events, culture and big ideas show from the CBC in Toronto.  We asked you to let  us know what you thought, and here are a few of the messages we received:

"Nice surprise! Great, lively show. Thanks for previewing it. I hope you'll add it to KALW's permanent schedule."   Michael, Berkeley
"I occassionally catch bits of your CBC supplied programs, which are well done -- good programming and personalities, but often totally irrelevant to US listeners.  This appeared to combine the slightly quirky approach and point of view with content I was interested in.  Would encourage you to continue it."   Bart, Palo Alto
"I was impressed with Day 6. it's fun and informative. I'd be so happy if KALW picked up this show."  
Pamela, San Francisco
Having gotten overwhelmingly positive response from listeners, we are now bringing Day 6 to KALW's schedule, Fridays at 6pm beginning this week.  If you weren't able to hear Day 6 in its pilot run, please take a listen and let us know your thoughts.  

Matt Martin was KALW’s general manager from 2006 through 2018. Under his leadership, KALW grew into one of the most productive and innovative stations in public radio. Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
