Salt Lake radio station KSFI (FM-100.3) will be heard on the other side of world - in Japan to be exact - on Wednesday, Oct. 10, as part of "We Love the Earth" activities in that country.
Because Salt Lake City is a sister city to Nagano, Japan, KSFI was asked to tape one hour of its programming and send it to Japan to be aired as part of a special six-hour show.Along with its own special blend of easy-listening music, KSFI has interspaced bits of information about what Utah is doing to tackle environmental problems, such as the "Tree Utah" project, designed to plant 2 million trees by the year 2000. Recycling effort around the Salt Lake area will also be mentioned.
"We Love the Earth" and KSFI's segment will be carried by 28 Japanese radio stations.
