KDB 93.7 FM Classic Radio to Hold First Ever On-Air Membership Drive
In an effort to continue the vital service of providing classical music to the community, KDB 93.7 FM will hold its first ever on-air membership drive. KDB is hoping to raise the necessary funds to further its mission – providing an engaging variety of classical music; news stories on the vital work of the county’s nonprofits; special programing; and live and recorded local concerts. In this tough economic time, listener support is vital to the sustainability of this local, community treasure.
Beginning on May 3, KDB will run an on-air pledge drive for seven days encouraging listeners to donate to and/or become members of KDB. Listeners will be treated to a week of on-air celebrations including listener testimonials and special guests. KDB is hoping to reach its fundraising goal before the seven days is up so that it can get back to doing what it does best – providing great classical music and coverage of the arts.
“It is important for us to reach out to our community of listeners,” said Tim Owens, general manager of KDB. “Their support is not only vital to our organization’s ability to promote and preserve classical music, but to also foster a local arts scene that is vibrant and thriving.”
With only a handful of classical radio stations remaining in the country, KDB has never been a more valuable community treasure and asset, important for the cultural relevance it provides its many listeners. KDB preserves a great musical heritage for music lovers, while also serving as an essential voice for local arts organizations, providing the opportunity to promote concerts and events, which in turn nurture our local economy.
