The community is invited to attend the KQKE 97.5 FM (The Quake) community meeting and potluck at Mr. O’s Academy, 360 Sixth St. in Holliste at 6 p.m., on Nov. 25 to hear about progress and goals and to encourage the participation of more volunteers.
Guest will learn about what volunteers have been doing, what they intend to do, and will find their place in the creation of community radio for the area.
KQKE is a volunteer-based, non-commercial radio station which received an FCC license early this year. It is a project of Community Media Access Partnership, which is contributing funds to build and equip the station, which will be run by volunteers.
In the coming months, volunteers will be renovating a building, creating programming, raising funding, managing and operating the station.
How might you be involved? What skills, knowledge and ideas might you be able to contribute?”
Station organizers are planning to be broadcasting, podcasting, and streaming content on the Internet in the next six months.
Organizers want to reflect the community and in particular are seeking more participation from women, Latinos, and youth.
