Kate McNally

Host, The Folk Show

Kate’s public radio career started at Keene State College as a volunteer DJ with the University’s student run station, WKNH, where she hosted a Sunday afternoon folk music program, Fiddlesticks for six years. In 1986 after graduating, Kate was offered a position with WKNE in Keene where she worked her way to become production coordinator, copywriter, full-time program director and morning drive personality for AM 1290. When WKNE-AM became an automated station, Kate moved on to work for WKXE and WRSI as well as nonprofit work. In 1995, Kate was asked to host The Folk Show on New Hampshire Public Radio. In addition to her studio work, Kate emcees festivals and concerts throughout the Northeast. Kate works full-time at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene as Coordinator of the Cheshire Coalition for Tobacco-Free Communities and teaches radio broadcasting at Keene State College as an adjunct faculty member of the Communications Department.

In The Studio: Novelist Scott Alarik And "Revival, A Folk Music Novel"

Credit Asia Kepka

I don’t know what came over me as I sat across from novelist Scott Alarik while he read from his new book, Revival, a Folk Music Novel in the studio at NHPR.  My throat closed up as my eyes started to well while he spoke from the heart of his character, Nathan Warren, a singer/songwriter, now open mic host who never quite got his shot at the big time.
