KOYT 96.3 Community Radio Conducts Third Fundraising Sale

Monday, Aug 01, 2016

The councilmembers of KOYT 96.3 community radio, now broadcasting the Anza and Aguanga valleys, conducted their third estate sale Saturday, July 23 at the old Country Corners restaurant on Bahrman Road.

Erinne Roscoe, KOYT Council member, said the third estate sale was a success. The community radio station is a nonprofit organization and depends upon donations from residents and members through community events like the estate sale.

Although temperatures reached close to the 100s Saturday, many residents turned out to see what was on sale and available at the event. Items left over from past estate sales and some new items were quickly claimed by the visitors.

She said it may be the last estate sale for some time with the remaining goods being donated to other charities. Other special events to bring donations to the community radio station are being planned by the stations governing council.

The station has been broadcasting since the first of the year bringing popular and classic music to the residents in the approximately 25-mile area around the stations broadcast antenna. A group of determined local residents worked almost two years to get the station licensed and up and running. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, it operates from the donations of its members and the community.

KOYT continues to seek new members who will be able to share future community news and views through planned special programs. Currently the station broadcasts music and other entertainment programs 24 hours a day at 96.3 fm radio.

Residents of the Anza and Aguanga areas are welcome to join as a member of the new radio stations.
