KPFZ Spring On-the-Air Fund Drive April 13-April 19th

It is that time of year...time for the KPFZ Spring on-the-air Fund Drive!  This year's fund drive starts on April 13 and runs through April 19th.  

Listen, visit, volunteer!    According to AMARC, "community radio means radio in the community, for the community, about the community and by the community. There is a wide participation from regular community members with respect to management and production of programs."  That description certainly fits KFPZ.  Our programmers and other volunteers are community residents.  Their shows are designed for Lake County and feature topics of interest for Lake County residents.  

Take time during the Fund Drive to support KPFZ.  You can call 707/263.3640 to become a member or donate.  Or join online at kpfz.org via PayPal.  Come down to the station - 149 North Main Street in Lakeport - and meet the programmers or take a tour of the station.  Volunteers are needed to answer phones during the fund drive.  To volunteer, contact Station Manager Andy Weiss at 707/263.3640.

Looking forward to taking your membership information soon!
