KDRT needs your support, October 28 to November 3!

Deep Roots!     That is what we all need to survive today!     Help us grow our roots deep in Davis this fall during our short fundraiser, October 28 to November 3!    Now is the time to give us a few bucks, a monthly donation, or a healthy dose of appreciation- whatever you think we deserve for our work.    We operate on a shoestring, lots of volunteer passion, and you!    KDRT-LP 95.7 fm is an effort we all put time into, and now is that time for our listeners and supporters.    

How can you help?     

Besides donating, plan to attend one of these fun events we've cooked up this week:

Album of the Week for October 17, 2018 is "The Wall" by Pink Floyd

This week, we are exploring "The Wall" ... with Paul. That's right, my father-in-law is hitting the KDRT studios to talk about this album, his interactions with Roger Waters, and his love of rock n' roll. Others may be joining us as well. There is no way we are getting through all 1 hour and 23 minutes of this album in our hour-long show, so we'll do what we can. It's going to be... something. Join us!
