In March 2015 KEOS 89.1FM celebrates twenty years of continuous on-air broadcasting—one of the very few remaining radio stations in the nation to have an all-volunteer staff, as KEOS has had from the beginning, and continuing to the present. Several wonderful djs have hosted since the earliest days and novices join each week to learn the process and carry on the tradition. New volunteers are welcome.
Many small, non-profit radio and tv stations receive support from a major university or even the US government. KEOS does not. Except for small grants from The Arts Council of the Brazos Valley, all KEOS support is provided by listeners and by local small-business owners.
THANK YOU!! You permit us to pay our mortgage, phone, utilities, tower rental—you recently have enabled us to upgrade dangerously outdated air-conditioning units and broadcasting equipment—and we have accumulated about half the funds necessary to increase broadcast range by adding to our tower height.
And so, with a new spring comes the Spring On Air Fund Drive, March 7th through March 22nd, with an ambitious goal of $10,000. Some matching gifts have been promised. Tickets and gift certificates have been donated to be offered in appreciation of support.
YOU CAN HELP:
Call the station. 979-779-5367 Cash or credit card is accepted by phone.
Visit keos.org—click on DONATE NOW— to donate by credit card.
While online, PLEASE CONSIDER making your donation recurring, which many find to be a relatively ‘painless’ way to help your gracefully aging community radio station, KEOS 89.1FM, remain on air– maybe for another twenty years.
