A drive for independence: Support 88.1 KDHX this fall

A drive for independence: Support 88.1 KDHX this fall Sara Finke
Written by Chris Ward, Marketing/Communications

Independent music is worth supporting. Independent media -- from local artists, to theatre, to the National Film Challenge -- is incredibly valuable. Independence from commercial and corporate influence is crucial in the year 2011.

From the very beginning, 88.1 KDHX has believed in these things. And we hope you do too. This is why we couldn't be happier to be gearing up for Fall Membership Drive 2011.

The kickoff is Thursday, October 6, and we're asking everyone who feels as strongly as we do about independent music and media to help support one of the last, true indie radio and media outlets in St. Louis.

From Thursday, October 6 to Sunday, October 16, you'll be hearing a lot about what makes KDHX such a vibrant and essential part of the St. Louis community and beyond. From award-winning radio programs and DJs to engaging online content, to internationally-celebrated film contests, to epic music events like Twangfest and Midwest Mayhem, to exclusive live, in-studio sessions, to a vibrant social media community -- KDHX is truly a one-of-a-kind resource. 88.1 KDHX is your gateway to music and events, your source for information about the arts and culture -- and you just won't find anything like it anywhere else.

Become a member of KDHX at the $88 level or more, or join our monthly giving program the Radio Frequency Club, and we'll send you "Live at KDHX, Volume. 9." If you're already a member of the RFC, you'll receive the CD soon.

Live at KDHX Vol. 9 features 22 cuts of volunteer-produced, in-studio recordings from some of the finest national and local bands, doing one-of-a-kind versions of some of their finest material. This is an exclusive offering to our supporters during the Fall 2011 Membership Drive.

Get more info about the CD and preview tracks.
