Board President Gale Arnold, DJ Humberto Calderon give a big thank you to Luis F. Serrano for his donation.
The response we received from our community during our first, three-day pledge drive was incredible. To date with pledges still coming in the drive has raised $3,547.
Support came in many forms besides money–visits to the station, chats with people about Radio Tierra, all added up to show that the community is on board.
“I would say our first pledge drive was a success on many fronts,” says Station Manager Paty Baum. “Thanks to those who participated! Thanks for your support.”
Humberto Calderon started the pledge drive each day at 7:00 a.m. When he left at 9:30 a.m., others stepped up and got behind the mic, including DJ’s, programmers, staff and board members: DJs Don Beto, Leticia Valle, Alejandro Aguilera, Eli, Debo Dinero, DJ Sur, and our newest DJ and board member Juan Reyes. Gale Arnold, Paty Baum and Susan Hess also took a turn.
