What if Santa Cruz had it's own radio station? Help us build this independent, noncommercial FM radio station. We will be on the dial at 90.7FM in Santa Cruz. This frequency serves most of Santa Cruz County! It will cost around $300,000 to get it on the air. What we need is YOU (and your dollars and ideas)! Don't worry your donation is tax deductible and will be returned (minus card processing fee) if for some reason we are unable to complete the purchase.
In times like these, we need rapid access to trustworthy local information. Our station will broadcast news and interviews based on the journalistic ethics and standards; truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability. We will celebrate that colorful, exciting, beautiful, innovative and quirky place we call home. Programs will be engaging, high-quality and original, focusing on telling the stories of life here on the central coast. Think: musicians, artists, writers, dancers, scientists, intellectuals, children, youth, seniors, electeds, non-profit leaders, historians,etc. Many voices; one station. Multi-tribal radio. Bringing back the best of programmers we all miss (Latin Jazz, Dr. Call-ins, Tech-Talk, Local News, Celtic, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk, and World music), Democracy Now!, Your Call, plus a slate of new shows. For a current sample of programs and music genres, visit: www.centralcoastcommunityradio.org.
Please help by donating as much as you can comfortably afford now. Take the survey at our website so we can know what sort of information and music you want to hear.
