Independent Media Must Stay Strong!

 

Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

Katharine here from the Sonic Blender, on the air right now. Enjoying the first hour of Americana featuring some of the Grammy winners 'blended' into our favorites here at KZYX, including Colin Linden, Jack White, Wanda Jackson and Mumford & Sons for sure.

The Grammy Show is always an annual irritation and attraction for me. Being a member of The Recording Academy, I vote every year for those artists I think deserve recognition and am often amazed at both the bands that never make it and some of the ones that do. This year was no different. The web lit up for me about 4pm from musicians peeved, especially those in LA, who bemoaned the delay of the television coverage an entire three hours later than the actual show. I had already found out who won, who lost and what dress who wore, well before the CBS show began. Still had to watch, though.

My two or three cents, for what it's worth, is Taylor Swift still can't sing (what is that about?), Jack White is an absolute genius, LL Cool J is a good lookin' man, Alabama Shakes should have had a live spot, but lot's of folks were turned on to Mumford & Sons, which has got to be a good thing, right?

So now we're back to the business of music. Spring is coming a new releases are filling up Mary's in box here, both good, bad and indifferent. I'll try to spin what we think rises to the top of the heap and keep you updated on upcoming live shows as usual.

Grammy-winners or no....

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

The CAB is composed of independent station members who are neither station staff nor Board members. Its purpose is to provide feedback to the station's Board of Directors, review the station's programming goals, make non-binding recommendations, and to advise the Board of Directors on how the station can best serve the communities of our area. Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
