Support Independent Radio -- Donate to KXLU Fundrazor
It's time again for the annual KXLU Fundrazor. If you listen to the station, are in one of the many bands the station has championed or just want to support non-corporate radio, you should consider calling KXLU and donating some money, even if it's just $5. It is important to support independent, community-organized and operated ventures like KXLU.
The KXLU Pledge Drive Phone Number is 310-338-KXLU, or you can donate online at KXLU.com.
Also, KXLU is urging listeners who live on the East side and find that the Christian Station KTLW is interfering with their reception to go to the Evidence Drive on the station's Web site, fill out a form and send it in. "KTLW is a pirate radio station and your apathy is keeping them alive," says deejay Fred Kiko, who co-hosts the Friday night Demolisten show.
