Loves + Disloves 2011 Fundraiser Show - APRIL 21ST 10-11PM

KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis is currently in the throws of its annual on-air fundraiser, running this year from April 18th to April 24th. As you may or may not know, KDVS is the UCDavis student/community radio station. It is truly one of the last bastions of freeform radio in the country.

What is freeform, you may ask. Simply put: Music DJs, public affairs hosts, and news reporters have complete control over what they broadcast. As KDVS DJs we are not required to adhere to a song rotation, or broadcast information that has been prescribed to us by an overseeing entity.

On average, about 1/2 to 2/3 of the KDVS annual operating budget comes from contributions made by our listeners, families, and friends during our fundraiser drive. You can help KDVS reach it's 2011 goal of $60,000 by pledging your support and $$s.

I've been a steady volunteer and DJ at KDVS for the past seven years. My current radio program, Loves and Disloves, has been airing since Spring of 2008, every Thursday night from 10-11PM. My personnel fundraiser show goal this year will be $600. Help me reach this goal by pledging either via phone or online between 10pm - 11pm PST, Thursday, April 21st.

Telephone, Toll Free: 877-399-5387
Telephone, Local: 530-754-5387

As a token of appreciation, our donors have the choice of selecting gifts in exchange for their contribution. These gifts range from T-shirts, music packages, gift certificates, to DJ services. You can check everything out at http://fundraiser.kdvs.org/

Also ....I may consider snorting Cyenne Pepper or downing weird asian energy drinks again in order to reach my goal. I've found over the years, promising to inflict pain upon yourself can be the little extra incentive folks need in order to pledge. Still a little on the fence..... If I decide to do it, more details will follow.

Thanks ahead of time for supporting community non-commercial radio!
