Keri Raphael hosts the Conscious Contact Gospel Hour on Sunday mornings.
"I have been creating the Conscious Contact Gospel Hour since Sunday, December 25, 2005, Christmas Day," she writes. "When that slot was offered to me, I felt like it was a perfect day to begin. I have listened to KHSU since I moved to Humboldt County in the early 1970's and I think local radio is crucial to a community. Although I have guest hosted other genres of music, I have a strong passion for Black gospel music and always return to it. I like to create an energetic and joyous space on Sunday mornings, playing music that lifts the spirit and inspires dance and song. "I know it's early, but I will wake you up!"
