The Triumph of Joy

Mr. Joy, Bill Kurnizki
The Triumph of Joy spotlights Mr. Joy himself, Bill Kurnizki, who was born in France to Russian parents and moved to the United States 65-years-ago when he was five. He's the President of Chico Housing Action Team, a local non-profit providing housing for the houseless, a husband of thirty years and a father of three. These lived-live highlights were realized by Bill's exuberant passion for people, life and the great outdoors. We end our segment with Alli Battaglia, local musician, Etheric Healing Practitioner, Ascension Guide, and Counselor as she reflects on Bill and Kim's segment ending interview and the joy she had writing Evaporate, a relationship song she wrote specially for Mr. Joy's segment.  As aired in November of 2020 on KZFR 90.1FM
