Our Spring Membership Drive kicks off today!

We’re just beginning our annual Spring Membership Drive, as of 6pm this morning! And even though the Springtime Drive is an annual KMFA tradition, each drive is unique to me. Part of the fun arises from the visitors who help us on the air… they are all community leaders who genuinely welcome the opportunity to speak personally about why they value their classical-music radio station.

This morning we especially enjoyed a visit by Khotan Shahbazi-Harmon, who loves community radio. She is well known for her award-winning on-air interviews with humanitarians and authors, and is also a member of the KMFA Community Advisory Board. She said on the air that she loves KMFA because it’s a reflection of Austin’s community… with quality programming, diversity, and enrichment. 

I’ve already pledged, myself, but I’m glued to the radio because I love hearing visitors describe KMFA from their own heart. Invariably, it’s not just about classical music, it’s also about more abstract benefits to the listeners and to the community, in ways unique to that individual. They are so articulate, it’s inspiring!

I’ll try to keep you posted about who’s next in the studio, but I really recommend listening…. And we’re still playing gorgeous music, too!
