Your local community radio station is 10 years old! KPTZ is hosting an on-air celebration Thursday, May 13 through Wednesday, May 19. We’re looking back on a decade of achievements and talking about What’s Next for the station. This is a pivotal moment for KPTZ, as we embark now on our relocation to KPTZ’s new studios at Fort Worden’s Makers Square, to be complete later this year.
To round out our week of special programming and fundraising, on Wednesday May 19, we’re inviting you to stop by our table outside the current KPTZ station at the Mountain View complex from 2 to 4pm, when you’ll have a chance to meet and greet with our KPTZ DJ/hosts. Everyone who donates can pick up a new sticker and a KPTZ mug or pint glass. Dalana, Jerry Osborne, Buzzy, Charlie Bermant, and others will be in attendance. Pop by and say hi!
Thanks to generous donors, including our own KPTZ DJs, who contributed to a pool of matching funds, all new donations during What’s Next week are being matched, essentially doubling each and every donation! Our goal is to raise $50,000 to fund the station’s budgetary needs, stay tuned and we’ll update on progress!
We’ll be asking for your support throughout the week. Please help us continue and expand what we do best—RADIO! Everyone who donates to KPTZ will receive a sticker with our new logo. Also, Pane D’Amore is offering their much appreciated and sought after prize: A Loaf of Bread Every Week for a year! All What’s Next week donors are eligible, online donors will be entered automatically. All listeners can email firstname.lastname@example.org to enter. The winner will be announced on Thursday May 20th.
