It’s Showtime!

As fall makes its way into our world, with all the abundance of an attendant new season upon us, it is time that we here at KPTZ spend a few days raising money to keep our offerings abundant. We haven’t “passed the hat” for half a year — so now it’s time to launch our Fall Fund Drive. With our goal of $50,000, we are asking that you make a donation to keep KPTZ a vital part of our community: Always and in All Ways. With all of the music, news and other programming we offer, it is — of course — necessary to periodically raise funds to make it all happen.

You may have heard recently that national and regional news operations are continuing to conglomerate, with fewer and fewer news correspondents and news sources to report the important stories of the day. And in this kind of climate, having a solid, credible — LOCAL — news source is of utmost importance. Whether it’s about climate change, voting rights, public health concerns, housing issues or any number of news stories affecting us in the Port Townsend and Jefferson County area, local reporters getting the news from local sources is even more valuable. As part of our News service, KPTZ also provides daily community calendars and listings so you are aware of the events happening around here.

And then there’s the MUSIC. Unlike other radio stations you can tune into, KPTZ’s volunteer DJs curate and disseminate each of their own music programs. Whether you’re into jazz, classical, world music or rock ’n’ roll, you’ll find it here on KPTZ. If you haven’t done so already, then, why not join others in our community and make a contribution to keep KPTZ on the air and bringing you the kind of programming that only a local, community operation can provide? Make a donation today. Just click on the blue “Donate Now” button at the top of this page and make your pledge. Thank you!
