Jazz After Dark May 6th 2021 BDOG show

Good morning — we’ve got a special edition of Jazz After Dark today. Call it Jazz in the Morning, to start the local broadcast day at KDRT FM in Davis on this Big Day of Giving in the Sacramento/Yolo County area.

Local nonprofit organizations come together on BDOG to raise funds through one site, one big push, one easy way to help support those local community organizations that do so much. Nonprofits took a big hit with the pandemic, unable to run their usual public fund appeals and activities.

KDRT is a part of Davis Media Access, one of the nonprofits you can help all through this 24-hour fund drive.

If you like local radio, community radio, then head on over to bigdayofgiving.org/DavisMedia to contribute. Anytime today, any amount.
