Kootenay Co-op Radio is currently running its One and Only Membership Drive live on-air week this week to Friday June 23rd at 93.5 FM in Nelson.

The membership drive is the only membership offering this year.

This is a big departure from the way things have done things in the past.

Kootenay Co-op Radio is finding that our volunteer programmers, who already donate so many hours each week to making quality local radio, where getting burned out from two Membership Drives a year.
The station has put alot of thought and research into how to make one membership drive work and is looking to make 25% of our operational budget from this drive.

This year Kootenay Co-op Radio is also planning to move its transmitter, since we had to remove our transmitter from the top of the hospital we lost alot of coverage.

So the transmitter is moving to the top of Elephant Mountain which gives a total coverage in town as well as on the highways as well as making our signal stereo! 
Many organizations, groups, and members of the public rely on KCR to help them promote the work they do. In return we rely on support from these groups to do their part in funding us.

Listen in for great prizes – did someone say a trip to Vancouver?

And watch for the  kick off party on Saturday July 17th at the station from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. featuring acts such as: Chickadee, Molly Sweeney, Eva Tree & Friends, The Devil’s You Don’t and others.
