Bellingham low-power FM station KZAX is launching its first pledge drive April 15-21. Listeners will tune in to 94.9 FM for exclusive pledge week interviews, programming, contests, and several opportunities to call in and win prizes. DJs will be on air all week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to share more about KZAX, chances to get involved, and ways to donate. On Saturday, April 21, KZAX will close pledge week with a concert at Make.Shift beginning at 8 p.m. and featuring Anacortes band Silm, Sherry from Austin, Texas, and Marion Walker from Seattle. Entry is six dollars and all ages are welcome!
Located at 306 Flora Street inside Make.Shift art space, KZAX launched in August 2016 growing from a small staff and group of volunteers to become one of Bellingham’s most loved stations broadcasting locally and streaming online to rest of the world. The KZAX team has worked hard the last two years to promote community events, offer free skillshare programs, and allow anyone in Bellingham to become involved in community radio.
As a nonprofit station, KZAX relies on sponsorships, underwriting, and donations in order to operate. The cost totals approximately $20,000 a year including equipment, staffing, and programming. Donations raised during the KZAX pledge drive will go toward all operational costs and will allow the organization to achieve its mission of providing the Bellingham community with locally created content and eclectic music programming.
