Community Radio at 88.5 KRFY invites everyone to two days of live radio fun during its annual membership drive.

Want to see, hear — and personally take part in — the inner workings of the town’s community radio station, 88.5 KRFY?

Your chance is coming up Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, when KRFY conducts its annual membership drive with live broadcasts on display downtown.

From 8 a.m.- 8 p.m., both days, KRFY will be broadcasting live at the station’s studio located at 323 N. First Ave. in downtown Sandpoint — upstairs. Disc jockeys will be queuing up the mics in between live performances by local musicians and interviews with leaders of community organizations and KRFY underwriters.

Visitors to the broadcast studio are invited to come watch, hear the in-studio concerts — and will have an opportunity to dedicate a song or give a shout out to family and friends.

Of course, the event is also a fundraiser for KRFY. There will be a phone bank where people may call in to 208-265-2992 anytime during the two-day drive, to become a member or make a donation.

KRFY is almost entirely powered by volunteers, from the broadcasters to production and committee personnel. KRFY Station Manager Suzy Prez said the goal is to raise $10,000 in donations during the drive, crucial to funding the ongoing operations of this vital community resource.

“This membership drive provides a primary funding source for our budget,” she noted, “and we hope we can involve virtually anyone who appreciates the value that commercial-free community radio brings to our area. We are a diverse community and our goal is to present music, information, and views recognizing that richness.”

“We hope people will come by on June 7 and 8 and say hello, or tune in to 88.5 — and become a member or donor, too!” Prez added.
