KCRW Membership Drive Volunteer's Needed
You never know who you might run into at a KCRW membership phone-a-thon. An old LAister, Ethan Lindsay, used to swear by the free food, musician run-ins and quality stories that he would come away with after volunteering. Out of work actors - practice your phone voice or accent you screwed up in a previous audition!
Plus volunteering brings good karma and you'll think twice about the next time someone cold calls you. KCRW's Summer Sign-Up will be held from August 3rd – August 13th, 2007. You can find more information and learn how to sign up here.
