News, Notes & Spins – October 5th, 2010

We’re late!  We’re late!  For a very important date!  Sorry guys.  Family took priority this past month, as I moved my Mom from Connecticut to Colorado (she finally retired!).  I don’t have much to report or much to say really this month.  I hope everyone had an excellent membership drive this past month.  According to interim GM Dennis Bigelow at KRFC, we did okay up there – getting up to around that $30k money.  It’s not enough to live on, but it sure helps as anyone in the non-profit radio world will attest.   Nice to see CSU’s KCSU back in the mix after a very long absence.  New local music director there – Kelsey Myers – so if you’re servicing records, make sure to get hold of her at kelsomye@aol.com.  With that …. here’s the top spins statewide with some our monthly representative station samplings.
