Racketeer Radio KFQX Covid 19 Update

August 17, 2021

First of all, I hope everyone reading this is safe & healthy. The last week has been a bit of chaos for me, nothing to do with Racketeer Radio KFQX itself, but things have been a bit more chaotic because of the rise of the new 'Delta' variant of Covid-19. As you may not know, Racketeer Radio KFQX is ran daily by volunteers that send in thier programs for airing on Racketeer Radio KFQX each and every day. Luckily, with the way we run Racketeer Radio KFQX at this time, I am able to stay secluded from most and am able to control my surroundings, for the most part. 

You also may not know,  I am a single Father to my 10 year old daughter and with the rising numbers, it has been a bit hetic with the school year  approaching and no vaccine. The next couple weeks will be telling here in Seattle if schools will open as usual or if online schooling will be an option. Personally already I have been pulling for an online option for the safety of my daughter. Then today i got the news from my roommate that they were exposed to covid and has been quarantined the last 4 days.

We just got his Covid Test back that revealed, Positived with Covid. At this time I have planned to get both my daughter and I, tested and some of our things packed up to leave and quarantin oursleves for how time will be needed. 

This last year I have had the time to grow and build up Racketeer Radio KFQX, but ive had this time because of my layoff due to the pandemic. This past week i have set up to also return to the bar and begin bartending again for some additional income to continue to grow, but that may now have to wait until im cleared and safe after being tested.

With all this being said and not getting into to many personal details, I will say that Racketeer Radio KFQX is going no where but up! Although, I have decided to put a hold on doing my Live Daily Program on Racketeer Radio KFQX, 'Hot off the Press' which I host. I will return with my hosting duties on 'Hot off the Press'  Monday September 20th 2021, the first day of fall, which will also be the day that we will add our updated Fall On Air music catalog. 

'Hot off the Press' will be the most significant change on Racketeer Radio KFQX, everything else will be the same, We all will be working our hardest to bring you the best in music, news, updates, events and more!
