Get on our Wavelength
In public broadcasting there’s a great debate and it goes like this:
are people more likely to donate if we’re asking for members - like it’s a rarified secret club . . . OR do listeners respond to a direct financial ask - “You need to pledge today!!!” - that sort of thing. Back and forth: Member drives versus pledge drives . . . or should it be “Pledge drives vs member drives”?
At Radio K, we don’t know either. What we do know is music - local, new, weird, old, challenging, fun - an amazing mix you’re not going to hear anywhere else on the planet all spun by real, live college DJs.
Help us help you discover new music and old favorites - Whether you’re a member or you’re pledging - that’s up to you. Donate today.
Your donations build Radio K: student-run radio, a place where a STEM major gets the final say on music adds, a Food and Agriculture Science kid runs the news podcast, and a Poli Sci major answers the phone and says it’s the best thing that ever happened to him.
Your donation does really boring things too - like pay for training so we pass our FCC inspections and hire drones to go up and photograph our tower to check for rust and to see if it needs work. It replaces missing CDs and teaches students how to use Pro Tools to mix their first funny pledge spots. It supports students learning to write contracts, run meetings and negotiate trades, as well as manage ticket giveaways. It pays student salaries so your DJs can afford to eat while they earn their degrees in Economics or Journalism.
Choose Radio K. Choose to support music and artists.
Please, continue to fuel that discovery by donating today.
