KCSB, Santa Barbara's campus/community free radio voice, is now in its annual membership/fundraising mode. It's been at 91.9 on the dial for 40 years, broadcasting 24/7. it's programming is as diverse, free wheeling and non-corporate as anything you'll hear anywhere in the US. And virtually all of the work is done by scores of student and community volunteers. KCSB needs community financial support to supplement the budget it gets from UCSB students.
I've been doing my weekly show, Culture of Protest, at KCSB for more than 27 years. If you've never tuned in, I hope you will (and you can get it streaming on line at www.kcsb.org at 6 PM PST Thursdays). As usual, I'm hoping you'll make a contribution and I'm offering cd's of several of the most requested recent culture of protest programs as thanks.
You can make a pledge by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org providing your name, address, phone and donation amount. The basic membership levels are $25 for UCSB students and $50 for non-students. For a basic pledge, you can request one of the following:
- Tribute to Abbey Lincoln--one of the great jazz singers, she died a few months ago and this program interwove her story and her songs
- Tribute to the Fugs: Tuli Kupferberg, a Fugs leader, died recently; we presented a montage of Fugs songs that pioneered in bold satire of militarism, Mammon and much else.
- Tribute to the 33 Chilean Miners: when they were finally liberated we presented a sampling of the rich musical tradiion of miners over the last 150 years. A truly educational experience for me--and I think for
You can have 2 of the above for a $75 donation, 3 for $100. Please include your name, address, phone, pledge request. Or call me when Culture of Protest is on the air: 6-7 pm PST Thursday 11/4 and 11/11 (I'll be pitching twice during the fund drive). 805-893-2424
