Coast Community Radio slated for Feb 26 Fort George benefit
February 7, 2019
“My name is Susan Peterson from Coast Community Radio, Community is our middle name!” As the Development Director, this is her favorite way to introduce the stations of Coast Community Radio.
Fort George Brewery and Pub has selected KMUN as their February Benefit Night recipient. On Feb 26, Fort George will donate 10 percent of all sales upstairs from 4:30 to 10:00 p.m.
They have planned to have lots of interesting people from the station to schmooze with while they eat and drink (remember the 10 percent), a silent auction, a one-of-a-kind raffle and KMUN swag.
The silent auction is packed with opportunities. How about a weekend in Sisters with skiing and eating at local restaurants? Or a birthday party for the young or young at heart at the Astoria Armory with pizza, ice cream and toys? Have you ever wanted to be a programmer on KMUN? This is your chance. Twenty programmers have offered to have the winner on their shows playing music, chatting and maybe sparking a desire to be on KMUN. Local musicians are offering three lessons for the highest bidder. They will also offer a vintage turntable along with signed local albums, including Krist Novoselic & Nirvana.
Raffle winners may take a drive up to the radio tower on Megler Mountain just up from Dismal Nitch in Washington with Station Manager Graham Nystrom. The staff generally refers to this as “Going to the Mountain.” Nystrom notes, “You will get an inside look at the facility that produces 5000 watts of great community radio. Enjoy views of Tillamook Head up to the South Jetty, across to the Megler Bridge, downtown Astoria, and up the Columbia River to Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier like you've never seen before.” Lunch will be included.
