They Put a Ring On it. All About Sustainer Appreciation Week!

Jul 25, 2017

WKMS Sustaining Members are amazing! Together, they make up 37% of all WKMS members and their on-going, renewing monthly support helps the station budget for the year's programming ahead.

So we're celebrating Sustainers the first week of August!

You can join in the fun by thanking a sustainer, checking out the "Sustainer Spotlights" on Facebook next week, or attending one of these special events:

August 1: Sustainer Appreciation Party

  • WHERE: Dry Ground Brewing Company in Paducah
  • WHEN: 6 to 8 PM
  • WHO: You!
  • WHAT: Live Music from WKMS Singer-Songwriting Contest Winner, Drew Thompson; free munchies courtesy of Mellow Mushroom,; cookies from our friends at Kirchoff's, special sustainer giveaways, a "Peach Plowed" brew on tap and good times with your fellow WKMS listeners and hosts!

 July 31 - August 6:

  • We'll have on-air thank you messages, sustainer spotlights, and other special ways to say "thanks" all week long.

 August 5: Station Open House

  • WHY: See (and hear) your dollars at work! 
  • WHERE: WKMS Studios (8th Floor Fine Arts Building, Murray State)
  • WHEN:10am - noon, come-and-go
  • WHAT: Meet the voices you hear on-air, see what the station really looks like, and record something in-studio. Of course there'll be cookies, lemonade, and conversations with your fellow listeners. All with a background of great bluegrass music as we hang out with volunteer Mike Gowen - hosting Music From the Front Porch live. 

Sustaining members create the radio that keeps you informed and constantly curious. Don't miss out on the fun! You can become a sustaining member of the station with a gift of $5/month or more anytime.

It's a great way to have a big impact on the station, without having a big impact on your budget all at once.
