Help KDRT Deepen Davis Roots
This fall, help your local community-supported radio station! KDRT aims to grow its roots deeper into the local loam and is asking the community to support these efforts by attending one of many fundraising events (see list below) and/or by donating directly during their fall fundraiser! KDRT operates on a shoestring, with lots of volunteer passion and you! Public affairs is an important part of community radio. When you donate, you support efforts like a growing public affairs department.
Check out the KDRT website!
Anchored by long-running shows like Davisville, Davis Garden Show, and Heart to Heart, the public affairs department has been buoyed by new shows like Indivisible Yolo, Shining Light, and Meraki Radio. Indivisible Yolo encourages us to resist, Shining Light shares potential, and Meraki Radio brings kinetic perspectives. Where else can you hear a World War II veteran (a regular guest) share views on the latest in politics and science? Our community is unique, and these shows reflect that. Speaking of unique, this quarter you can tune into Technocult Radio, a yearly partnership KDRT enjoys with UC Davis professor Jesse Drew and his students. Technocult is a highly sophisticated show with weekly reports filed by students. Donations from you results in programming like this!
Think global, listen local
KDRT also brings to Davis a “carefully curated cornucopia” of public affairs programs produced nationally. Your donations help us maintain our Pacifica Affiliation, giving us access to many shows not heard elsewhere, like What’s The Frequency, Kenneth and The Shortwave Report. We also bring science to your ears with shows like Sea Change Radio, Exploration with Michio Kaku, Big Picture Science, Planetary Radio, and even Planet Watch. Our volunteers pride themselves on providing science programming. And don’t forget about the cutting edge work of Bioneers.

Fundraiser: On November 2 we’ll be celebrating KDRT 95.7FM and raising funds at Woodstocks Pizza. There’ll be LIVE MUSIC from The Big Poppies, who recently released a new CD. A portion of proceeds from food & beer sales that night will go to support KDRT ~ just mention us at the register when you order!
Saturday, November 3, 8am-3pm
Did someone say Garage Sale? We have some uniquely odd items to sell, and you may be the perfect buyer. All sales go to the station, and you won’t leave empty handed. Items ranging from Vinyl Records, VHS tapes, VCR machines, slide projectors, wall hangings, old postcards, shelving, rolling carts, old cameras. You get the idea. We’ll be opening the back garage door in the parking lot at 1623 Fifth Street. If you drive, please be courteous to our neighbor and underwriter Redbarn Nursery by not parking near them. Come down and check it out!
We love to collect listener feedback! Take a survey here to let us know what you think.
Let’s do this!
Tune into 95.7FM or kdrt.org this week, visit some of our business sponsors to help us reach our goal and come celebrate with us at an event! All donations welcome! Thank you gifts are available, including a very special, limited edition Fall 2018 shirt (view Here or Here) designed by our own Eunah Cho!
