Devan Kortan Joins Excellence In Jazz Team
If you’ve been listening to CapRadio Music on Friday or Sunday evenings lately, you may have noticed an enthusiastic new voice on the air. Jazz guitarist/vocalist and Sac State senior Devan Kortan joined the CapRadio music staff in February.

Kortan brings loads of enthusiasm and, despite his young age, lots of jazz experience to the microphone. You can also catch him out in the community performing in various bands, running jam sessions, or representing CapRadio onstage as a concert emcee, as he did when he introduced acclaimed vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant at the Mondavi Center last month.

Affordable Housing Bonus Podcast
Did you enjoy our coverage of the affordable housing crisis on The View From Here: Place And Privilege? Well, we have something extra special for you...


This compilation podcast features six multimedia stories composed by student journalists as part of the Next Generation Radio program. CapRadio is proud to partner with NextGen, and this year, these talented students produced an entire narrative in just one week focused on personal housing stories in our region.

The View From Here Debuts At The California Museum
What do you get when you combine radio + education + art? The View From Here: A Year At Encina told the groundbreaking story of the staff and students of Encina Preparatory High School, who deal with extraordinary challenges on a daily basis. The yearlong multimedia project has now graduated to an exhibit at the California Museum, and Capital Public Radio invites you to visit.


Passion and Perseverance: A Year at Encina tackles the subject of the growing inequality in California schools. This art exhibit highlights stories of dedicated teachers and diverse students in a low-income suburban Sacramento school where resilience and ability cannot be measured by test scores. The exhibit explores what the school’s history reveals about California itself, tackling issues of equity, immigration and stigma as well as the meaning of community and family. .

The exhibition runs March 1st through June 10th at the California Museum in Sacramento.
