KGGV needs your support to keep our broadcast on the air in 2018.
95.1 KGGV is an all-volunteer, non-profit community radio station serving the lower Russian River area, operated by Guerneville Community Church as a service to the community. We entertain and inform with an eclectic variety of live programming produced by local volunteers, and serve as a channel for local public affairs programming and emergency information. We’re the only radio station licensed to the Russian River area that actually has a studio in the area we serve.
It’s been a heck of a year… floods, heat waves, tragic fires, political tumult… and through it all, KGGV Community Radio has kept the lower Russian River informed and entertained with amazing original programs like Sadie’s Traditional Ballads, Beneath the Waves, Our Empower Hour, Steady Eddie’s Music Cellar and more.
We broadcast the only locally-based news coverage of Russian River flooding and emergency information and broadcast several community meetings on issues including homelessness and river flow. We hosted a terrific free summer concert series featuring local Sonoma County musicians and showcased local and independent artists that you’ll never hear on corporate radio stations. We’ve recruited and trained new volunteers, and added new voices to our diverse team, new ideas, and new energy. We’ve improved streaming capacity and reliability.
Right now we’re operating with no safety net. We must get KGGV on a stronger financial footing as we prepare for an uncertain future, or there will be no KGGV. That would be a terrible shame after 12 years of great community radio serving the Russian River communities.
We cannot continue to operate without you, and your generous contribution. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization 100 percent supported by generous donations from our community, friends, family, and local businesses. Please donate today.
