Did you know that KALX receives only a portion of its annual operating budget from the University of California, Berkeley? The rest of the budget, and that includes any hoped-for equipment upgrades, comes from you, our listeners. Projects we are working on right now that depend on listener support include the design of a new KALX website, replacing our obsolete and malfunctioning News Studio mixing board, and purchasing a new back-up transmitter to replace our old, tube-based transmitter from the 1970s. And that’s on top of our regular operating expenses. We’ll have a new KALX 60th anniversary t-shirt, a KALX beanie, and a retro design hoodie available as thank you gifts for your donations at kalx.berkeley.edu/donate, but the real thank you is keeping KALX on the air, growing, and thriving. Get ready to give what you can, April 17-23! No donation is too large or too small!
