OLYMPIA, Wash.--KAOS 89.3 FM Olympia Community Radio kicks off its first Membership Drive of 2009 on Thursday, February 26. The nine-day drive will end Friday, March 6. New supporters and renewing KAOS members are invited to contribute to the public radio station’s drive goal of $30,000.
“Given the economy, this year will be more challenging for KAOS, as it will be for all non-profits,” said John Ford, station Development Director. “Thankfully, many listeners realize that KAOS provides commercial-free programming and community voices that they can’t get anywhere else, and it’s a service that requires them to pay their share. Our hope is to get more committed listeners to give at a level that fits their situation. Every donation at all levels still adds up to a stronger station for all KAOS listeners.”
All funds raised are used to support the programming and training activities of KAOS Olympia Community Radio. Celebrating 36 years of community service, KAOS has been the South Sound’s only full-time, full-power commercial-free public radio service, offering a wide range of independent music, local and global news, and community information since 1973. The station streams its broadcasting live on the World Wide Web, at www.kaosradio.org, and can be heard on Comcast cable in Thurston County on TCTV Public Access channel 22 as well as Comcast Digital Cable channel 982.
