The Colorado Sound (KRFC Fund Drive)

There are two different playlists for this week’s episode.  KRFC’s spring fund drive show and then the one that went out for syndication… and if you don’t mind, I’m going to rant a bit here.  Two times a year, KRFC does a fund drive.  The goals are extremely modest – raise $40,000.  The Colorado Sound has a ridiculously modest goal of $200.

Now we made our goal – but I was saddened and disappointed that not a single contributor was a musician from a band in this area.  We got contributions from Vermont to Hot Sulfur Springs – but none from any musicians… how sad is that, right? 😦

Deni LaRue was my co-host yesterday.  She’s an old friend in radio, who is also on the board of directors for KRFC.  We spoke candidly about our needs and our desire to be the place where local music can be featured on a regular basis.  In fact, KRFC airs more Colorado music than any station in the state — and Fort Collins is a leading market for local music in the state … yet no calls from any local bands?  Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Better luck next time, I suppose.  If you wanted to contribute and couldn’t for some reason, that’s understandable.  It’s not too late.  Call the station at 970-221-5065 and let the operator know your contribution should be attributable to the Colorado Sound — and thanks for allowing me this space to rant and a radio station to broadcast Colorado music from.  I’m blessed that I have that much to offer.

I've been on the air in Northern Colorado since 1978. The Colorado Playlist is broadcast on 27 FM frequencies in the state, 60 hours a week.

One thought on “The Colorado Sound (KRFC Fund Drive)”

  1. Five days a week KRFC Showcases musical talent from around the world, mostly from right here in our own back yard. I am thrilled to serve Northern Colorado, and the music industry in this manner. I am, however, very concerned about the aftermath if we lose industry assets such as community radio. Does Fort Collins want to be known for it’s “Radio Station that WAS?..” KWAS 88.9fm the coolest thing that ever was..?

    Support Community Radio, inform, entertain, Come Together…

    Thank you, for the consideration.
