Community radio schedules fund drive

KAFM Community Radio in Grand Junction has scheduled its spring fund drive for March 8 to 15, an effort that will include give-aways, special events and musical performances.

Participants who pledge $120 or more to KAFM during the drive will be entered to win two tickets to the Tedeschi Trucks Band performance set for July 27 at Red Rocks Amphitheater. A prize package valued at more than $600 also includes lodging.

The spring fund drive will feature a beer tasting scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. March 8, a bloody mary brunch set for  9 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 9 and Food Frisbee tacos served between noon and 1 p.m. March 12.

The Embodying Rhythm Marimba Ensemble will perform at 7 p.m. March 15 in the KAFM Radio Room. Tickets sell for $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Now celebrating its 20th year in operation, the nonprofit KAFM radio station relies on member and volunteer support to offer a variety of musical and community affairs programming. Membership and underwriting have increased. Nearly 100 volunteers, some who’ve been on the air for 20 years, provide programming.
