A brand new free-form, community-based radio station set to hit the airwaves in Fall 2016 is looking for help to cover costs associated with broadcast expenses. KUTZ-FM, which will eventually be at 106.9 FM on the dial, was started by a group of KDVS (90.3 FM) UC Davis alumni along with local artists and community members who share a vision to “broadcast diverse music and public interest programming focused on content which is currently unavailable through other local media outlets,” according to a press release submitted to Submerge. The KUTZ team (who all volunteer their time, as the station is a non-profit organization) is looking to raise a modest $7,500 between July 18 and Aug. 31, 2016 of this year to cover transmitter and other equipment expenses, as well as various other costs associated with getting any organization off the ground. “KUTZ-FM is part of a grassroots movement that seeks to differentiate itself from the generic commercial programming that predominates our airwaves today,” they wrote, going on to say, “It supports the return to a more personable and community focused experience.” If this sounds like something you’d like to support (and it should be!) then visit Kutzfm.org and donate today.
