A Note from the General Manager
Dear Patrons of Classical KUCO,
As those of you who were listening know, we finished our fall fund drive about an hour earlier than usual. The first time in seven years! We had so many calls of support from members who appreciate the value of a local classical music radio station in Oklahoma, in fact I had a call the next day from someone who was so moved by the public support shown that they expressed their deep pride in the community as a whole for supporting the unique thing we do. I personally was pleased with the many calls we received from students and other young people who, though they could not give a large amount, also wanted to see our station remain a beacon of good music into the future.
Our most exciting news is that we are on the verge of closing our purchase of KZCU-FM in Woodward. We are buying it from our sister station, KCCU, at Cameron University in Lawton and, when activated, it will give KUCO a “diagonal” across the state, southeast to northwest. We would really like to entertain the citizens of Woodward with good Christmas and holiday programming if we can--just a little paperwork in the way now.
Thank you again to our hard-working staff, our volunteers, the restaurants who served lunch and all the new and renewing members who pulled off another great drive.
