Amy Kimberly from Carbondale Arts was our guest on this morning's Nonprofit Spotlight. She says: "We feel these airwaves are important, they connect us, they get information out there that's important, they allow creativity and freedom. There are so many kids that have grown up here on KDNK who are absolutely some of my most favorite adults.  They are the ones that are holding the spirit of the community for the future. I really think that KDNK is a huge part of that. We hope people keep this station thriving."
