Welcome to Full Circle, your Cultural Affairs radio magazine produced by members and Graduates of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program.

We’re on the cusp of Memorial Day Weekend. It has been a tragic year for many.

Tonight we’ll give you – the listeners – an opportunity to give recognition to your departed loved ones, family members or friends – no matter when they passed away. Honoring and remembering is how they stay with us.

Co-host Joy Moore asked us to show how this season of sorrow is affecting her. All of us have wounds and losses, whether others can see them or not. We need to take care of ourselves, and each other. Be well!
