The Tuning Fork was started by farmer John Sheffy in

spring of 2007 and featured conversations about the progress

of the growing season.  Soon after it started, Holly Petrillo (an

Associate Forestry Professor at UWSP) joined the 

show as a host and the married couple co-hosted

until 2011.  The show held true to its tagline: the

show that tunes you into what's on your fork! 

When John and Holly moved to Almond to start

their own farm, Liberation Farmers, the show shifted

ownership to a UWSP student.

The Tuning Fork follows a rough rotation of 4-5 styles of shows.  The

Story Hour features writing from heroes in ecology and agriculture,

while a Local Business Feature will flow more like an informative

conversation.  The Shuffle takes a political slant, reporting on items

related to the TF ethos and our government.  Out Standing in their Field 

is a segment that transports the listener to a day in the life of a farmer.

Every now and then an opportunity for a great story will pop up and so 

something that feels a little random will get thrown into the mix as well.

 

You can tune in every other Thursday evening at 6pm to hear the show.  Listen live, at 89.9 on the dial, or stream it at 90fm.org.
