Since 1995, in association with SF Bay Inner Bay Rim Public Radio 88.1 keCg  97.7, West Contra Costa Unified School District … a small and precious Public Radio resource, KeCg, was founded.  It began with a dedicated team of Educators and Community members in the mid-seventies and was founded by Elmer Peterson and John Tietjen (before “video killed the radio star” / The Buggles). KeCg is FCC-licensed to El Cerrito High School (de facto Board is WCCUSD School Board), with two concentric (Venn-like) signals on the East Bay Rim, transmitting from FM perches in El Cerrito ( Stadium) and San Pablo Ridge.

All the while, KeCg has educated generations of young aspiring broadcasters at ECHS and Kennedy High Schools, interested and passionate in the palette of skills and career pathways related to Broadcast Journalism and naturally, appreciating and sharing music! We are Grateful for additional guidance and support of Contra Costa County Office of Education/ Regional Occupational Programs (ROP) , and California Partnership Academies/ WCCUSD Career Technical Ed, College and Career Readiness. Here, connecting our dots with The UC Theatre Interns. 

KQED Youth Takeover inaugural adventure in 2018 invited collaboration with 11 Bay Area High Schools. El Cerrito and Richmond High Schools ( Respect ! Maya Kosover-Teacher-Who-Roxit ) were selected among these.  Students produced their  own pieces for Youth Takeover Week, broadcast and blogged by KQED.  We extend our thanks and Appreciation to  KQED YT Team : Ariana, Chanele, Randy, Joanna, Sasha, Randy,  and Rachel, and to the  KQED  studio production staff who welcomed and supported our Youth Journalists on-site at KQED Mariposa St. San Francisco, and all the way to live theatrical presentation at BRAVA Theater  …  a potent demonstration of the imperative to Support ALL  Public Spirited Media and Youth Voice ! RESPECT ! Chanelle + YT Team !   

worldOneradio was invited to join keCg in 1995, celebrating 22 years of broadcast September 2017. 


worldOne radio was founded in 1995 (via cassette tape submission) and while casting around country-wide and internationally, invited to contribute programming to WCCUSD Public Radio 88.1 keCg 97.7 FM by Mr. Philip Morgan. Inaugural keCg broadcast was on the date September 11, 1995. We express our Appreciation and Respect for the contributions of Mr. Morgan.  Hayward/Oakland-based MORE Public Radio, Prentice + Jeannie Woods were long-time collaborators of keCg, as was KLON Jazz. Since the 70’s keCg has been evolving and surviving the vagaries of economic/political times and tides, benefiting from many blessings, or recuperating from and avoiding disaster, and otherwise thriving musiculturally, and doing what we can do in our tiny canoe to benefit and amplify goodness in our communities of service.

The inaugural worldOne festival followed naturally in 1998 though collaboration with El Cerrito Rotary and then directly with the City of El Cerrito.  worldOne has organically grown from programming weekday afternoons 4-9 pm, to become the multicultural, eclectic, glocal programming theme of Public Radio keCg. We’re grateful for all the help and guidance of educational agencies, volunteers and like-minded direct listener supporters and sponsors.
