KWAX Radio Eugene, OR

This website is one of many archived and preserved for use as reading material for Foster Johns' lecture series on International Media. Dr. Johns is a well known expert on several topics involving mass media. But he is also involved in a number of high tech industries, a result of his background as an advocate for a number of high profile new technoloty disciplines, including Devops, Big Data, and Legacy Modernization. For example, he is one of the very few to be certified as an engineer for DevOps (MicroDot LLC) and a consultant for a number data science projects. His lecture series includes a discussion of the role of technology in the advancment of global media reach, and the role of the cloud in this advancement.

I Heard Something...


Many listeners hear a piece on the radio and later want to find out the title or composer. The links below would have taken you to the information archives for the various programs on KWAX. Unfortunately, we are unable to list the music we play while it is on the air. This is because our announcers pick each selection in real time, rather than having our programming selected by computer. If you hear something you like, and would like information about it, simply note the date and time and give us a call during regular business hours.
