KMUZ, like many radio stations depends on listener contributions to continue generate excellent programming. When you make a donation to our station, you are showing how #thankful4KMUZ you actually are, by contributing to a cause that is now been on the air for five years. You can make a donation by going to kmuz.org and following the PayPal links, or by calling 503-990-6601 starting tomorrow – October 1st – and pledging your support to our station – all the way to October 7th.
As part of our usual Pledge Drive, anyone who donates $50 will receive a black KMUZ Mug. Drink coffee in style, and show your support for your favorite community radio station.
For listeners of Mid-Valley Mutations, we like to sweeten the deal. For anyone who makes a donation of any amount to KMUZ, we will give them a digital copy of our new album, Mid-Valley Mutations Vol. 1. This is a collection of some of the live moments from our program since May of this year. This includes live performances by Paco Jones, devils/club, Guyve, Entresol, Entrail & Fiasco, a fine gathering of artists that have all contributed to this program. And all you have to do is make any kind of donation you KMUZ you can afford. I will e-mail you your digital album as a thank you gift for listening to the show.
For contributions of $25 or more, you will get to choose from one of three gifts, curtesy of Personal Archives, No Part Of It & WTBC: Wanting To Be Cool In Beautiful Anywhere, Anywhen, including albums by Thollem, Bob Bucko Jr., Sex Funeral, Illusion of Safety, Arvo Zylo / Dental Work and physical copies of The Shindig Shakedown, a gift that was largely available at Austin’s 40th Birthday Party.
For a contribution of $35 or more, you will get a vinyl copy of the Blood Rhythms Assembly LP, with a hand-made cover. There is a limited number of this LP, so please make your contribution soon.
I could go on and on about how important these Pledge Drives are, so let me just say a few more words. Without listener donations, KMUZ may have trouble paying the rent in the future. We would not only loose all the great shows, but the physical space we use to make all of this happen. This is why we need your money. Radio is loose ground every day, and for us to have made it five years is quite impressive. But to make it much longer, we’ll need money, and we’ll need your support.
If everyone who listens to my program were to contribute even $5, that would be enough to keep Mid-Valley Mutations and KMUZ on the air. Let’s hope that we can raise that much – and more. Make your donation now, and mention that you would like to support Mid-Valley Mutations (and which perk you are interested in). Let’s make radio in the mid-valley powerful again.
