KXCI Music Memorial for Rich Morgan - Sunday 2-3:30pm


Tune in for special programming from 2 to 3:30pm Sunday, Feb. 28th, in memory of Rich Morgan. Rich loved music and was a long time KXCI supporter. His wide encompassing tastes are reflected in some of his favorite songs that we'll be playing Sunday, which range from the blues of Lightnin' Hopkins to Tuvan throat singing, from the African voice of Baaba Maal to the classic country of Hank Williams and includes jazz greats like Thelonius Monk along side The Rolling Stones.

There will be a memorial for Rich Morgan this Monday March 1st, 5:30pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 4831 E. 22nd St.

Online Pledging Restored; Click Here!

While we continue to rebuild the official KXCI webstore, we have moved the online pledging for our membership program into the KXCI auction site: http://www.biddingforgood.com/kxci

Instead of bidding to win a cool item (as in our regular auction) you can go to the site, select your pledge level (from $10 to $1,000) and "Buy Now" to show your support to Community Radio with a tax-deductible membership gift.

It's harder to explain than it is to do, so head over to the KXCI auction site right now to check it out and hopefully, make your show of support to KXCI 91.3FM: http://www.biddingforgood.com/kxci
