KEOS Community Radio

September First Friday

First Friday, September 4, showcases one of the state’s newest Cultural Districts, Downtown Bryan, and the city’s music, arts, culture and commerce. Many stores stay open late, and music fills the air in businesses and on the street, weather permitting. There are plenty of places to eat and drink.

KEOS volunteers will be in our usual First Friday location in the 100 block of South Main, between Papa Perez Mexican restaurant & the LaSalle, ready to meet folks and talk about KEOS.

Parking is available on the street or at the downtown parking garage. First Friday is a free event open to the public.

For more information: Call 979-822-4920 or go to http://www.downtownbryan.com/

TWENTY YEARS OF ALL-VOLUNTEER

In the past year, you enabled us to upgrade dangerously outdated air-conditioning units and broadcasting equipment and to accumulate over half the funds needed to raise our tower height to increase broadcast range.

Lone Star Music Series Thanks and Interview with Sam Baker

Thanks to everyone who made it to Grand Stafford Theater on March 27 to see Sam Baker, Carrie Elkin, and Chip Dolan in the first installment of KEOS’s Lone Star Music Series. It was also a great pleasure to welcome opening act Claire Domingue and Coby Tate back to downtown Bryan. What a great show!

Just before the concert, KEOS volunteer Anne Preston interviewed Sam Baker in the Stafford green room at Advent GX in downtown Bryan. You can listen to the interview here.


KEOS would like to thank Grand Stafford Theater, Village Café, and Comfort Suites University for helping us launch the Lone Star Music Series. The Lone Star Music Series kick-off concert was made possible in part through Hotel Tax Revenue funded from the City of College Station and the City of Bryan through the Arts Council of Brazos Valley.

All of us at KEOS look forward to the next concert in the Lone Star Music Series, the 2015 Volunteer Jam, later this year. Stay tuned!
