What the For KDHX Campaign is all about


Hi fans and friends.

 

If you've been listening to KDHX this week, you've heard all about our For KDHX Campaign. It's a really big and wholly new project for this radio station.

 

Here's a personal note: I've been a DJ at 88.1 KDHX since the Fall of 2004, when I started on Saturday mornings, filling in for Clint Harding of "Blue Highways," who had just moved to Columbia, Mo. I was hesitant about becoming a full-time DJ. Would I have the time? Could I handle the commitment? How could I ever fit another hat on the already many-hatted rack of my life?

 

Nearly nine years later, I haven't thought twice about becoming a part of this radio station.

 

Since then I've seen KDHX grow and improve in too many ways to name. We sound better, have more diverse programming and we're more deeply involved in the arts community than ever. And we've never lost sight of what makes this station special: The amazing music, programmed by amazing human beings, in and for the community.

 

Have you been to or driven by the KDHX facility on 3504 Magnolia in the Tower Grove Park neighborhood? It's a great old building, a converted bakery that has served as our home for over 20 years.

 

But we outgrew that space years ago. Our staff literally has nowhere to work, small offices are shared by 3-4 people and bands can barely fit into our performance studio.

 

We love this old bakery, but it just doesn't have the space we need to do what we truly best: producing great radio and making deep connections in the community.

 

Today, I'm going to be donating $1000 to the For KDHX Campaign. That's a big step for me, especially on a part-time teacher and freelance writer's budget, but I know how important this campaign is. And I want that cool cassette with my name on it up on the donor wall at the new Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media in Grand Center.

 

That new home in Grand Center, right across from the Fox Theatre and next door to Jazz at the Bistro, isn't just a new building. It's the future of KDHX, and I am excited to be part of it.

 

I hope you'll join me in contributing to this campaign for KDHX. I know many of you are regular contributors already -- and I thank you for that. But this is something truly different and truly special. I hope you'll join me and be a part of it today.

 

Donate to the For KDHX Campaign.
