WKMS is made possible by listener donations. So the first week of August, we're celebrating all of you that have kept WKMS on the air this year!
We'll have thank you messages on-air all week long and two FREE special events for listeners:
AUGUST 2: Appreciation Party @ PBW
WHERE: Paducah Beer Werks, 301 N. 4th St, Paducah, KY 42001
WHEN: 6 to 8 PM
WHAT: Come hang out with WKMS hosts, staff and other fans of NPR as we say thanks to the donors across our region who make public radio great!
We'll have live music from Fate McAfee & Melanie Davis, appetizers by Paducah Beer Werks, games and giveaways, and maybe even a special public radio brew. Or you can try a flight of All Beers Considered.
It's a fun, free way to celebrate your love of listening. And thanks to our amazing friends at Paducah Beer Werks, 10% of all bar sales go to support the station. Now that's what we call toasting to a good cause!
AUGUST 6: Station talk with Kentucky Capitol Reporter Ryland Barton
WHERE: WKMS Studios (8th Floor, Murray State Fine Arts Building)
WHAT: After Fancy Farm weekend, catch up on state politics at this Meet & Greet with Kentucky Public Radio State Capitol Reporter, Ryland Barton. Talk Frankfort with Ryland, hear him answer questions about what it's like behind-the-scenes. See the WKMS studios and chat with other NPR fans. It's an evening for the newsies among us, and you're invited!
