Getting to Know Us.....
Q&A with Kari and Nicholle originated from a desire to bring information and answer questions on all things related to the Chapin Labor Day Festival Weekend. From three successful broadcast in 2018 during festival time, the show has now grown into 40+ episodes throughout the year that now include all events in the Chapin community and support local small businesses in the Chapin area.
The Wine Down Series begin durning the Spring of 2020, in response to the 'safe at home' COVID-19 pandemic, Kari and Nicholle began broadcasting each weekday at 5 PM with a 'Daily Wine Down'..... bringing up to date news and answering questions and concerns. In February of 2021, they moved from daily broadcast to a 'Weekly Wine Down' where they featured a Game Night on the last Sunday of each month. This series ran until June 27, 2021.
