Darlene has returned to the "Voice of the Navajo Nation" as an on-air DJ. You will hear Darlene on the weekday afternoon shift from 12:00P to 6:00P on KTNN AM 660.
Q: Are you excited on returning to KTNN?
A: Yes, I always enjoyed working with KTNN and entertaining the listeners.
Q: What new ideas and goals do you have?
A: One of my immediate goals is to host a culture and tradition show on Sunday evenings, in the mean time I will play more Native American Contemporary and Traditional Music on my weekday afternoon shift.
Q: After being away from KTNN for so long, what will you do differently?
A: Have more fun and interact with the listeners more.
Q: What were you doing from the time you left to the time you returned to KTNN?
A: I had several odd jobs and they all dealt with customer relations, in the end I have and always will help my friends, relatives, and of course, the listeners of KTNN.
Q: What changes have been made since you left and how fast are you getting use to them?
A: First of all, the computer program we used was different from the current Prophet system. Thankfully, I am computer literate and learned quickly. Other things are like management and staff. So far, everything is positive and the staff are very helpful. I still get nervous going on-air but I am getting over that quickly too. I also am slowly getting reaquainted with the New Music.
Q: Is there anything you want to say to the listeners?
A: I just want to thank everyone for calling me in the studios and saying they missed listening to me on the radio. I also want to say thank-you to KTNN for allowing me to get back on the air. Be sure to tune in weekday afternoons from 12P to 6P, I do my best to get your requests and PSAs on the air.
**We did this short interview between breaks, Darlene had to rush back into the studio to continue entertaining listeners. Thanks for reading and keep listening to the Voice of the Navajo Nation. MPeshlakai
