I learned a lot about the power of Yosemite on my March 31, 2017 interview with Kirk Keeler. Kirk is is a teaching staff photographer and workshop coordinator of the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park. We walked along the Merced River on the Yosemite Valley Loop trail with his colleague Evan Russel. After Evan’s interview ended, Kirk and I escaped to Leidig Meadow to enjoy a conversation and some peaches under the stars as we were serenaded by hundreds of frogs in Yosemite Valley. The broadcast of the Kirk Keeler Yosemite Peaches show will be Sunday April 16, 2017 at 1 pm PDT on air & streaming at KAAD-LP 103.5 FM Sonora, California.
Kirk Keeler Yosemite Peaches
Kirk and I have shared many meaningful conversations in the past year, and I feel I have earned his trust. He was able to share one of his biggest disappointments in our interview together. Kirk also explained how Yosemite has healed that wound which begs the question ‘What does Yosemite move you to do?’. Learn more about Kirk and find out if he really does like the taste of canned peaches and see what he has in common with Austin Plaine.
The podcast of the show with Kirk will follow shortly after that broadcast on our Yosemite Can O Peaches page on Libsyn, iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. Please help support local radio programs by subscribing to this show on one of those platforms.
The concept for the Yosemite Can O Peaches Radio Podcast was developed over the past several years. Each show will be recorded live from the trails of Yosemite National Park. Host John P. DeGrazio will share stories of how Yosemite influenced the lives of local artists, musicians, photographers, explorers, and a variety of other Yosemite experts with a tale to tell. The peaches represent the sweet reward of every exploration in nature. Special thanks to Thomas Wilmer for his kind generosity and mentorship. Tom also recorded the Outro for this show.
