Thank you for the awesome support shown during the annual KPFZ 88.1 FM Spring Fun-A-Thon Fund Drive and Open House. As of April 29th, we raised $15,585 in pledges during the fund drive. The mail-out fund drive has raised $5,380 so far. KPFZ supporters are AWESOME!!! Programmers enjoyed the opportunity to meet and chat with listeners during the open house. All of us were grateful for and enjoyed the refreshments everyone brought.
Just a reminder, if you haven’t paid your pledge, please stop by the station at 149 N. Main Street or mail it to KPFZ, P.O. Box 446, Lakeport, CA 95453. Also, if you requested a premium, be sure and stop by the station to pick it up. Mornings are usually best but call 707/263.3640 to make arrangements if another time works better for you.

KPFZ Management has announced that online streaming ended on January 31, 2016. According to the KPFZ Board of Directors President Chloe Karl station staff are currently exploring other avenues to restore online streaming.
If you do want to help prevent this to happen, check out the Future of Music Coalition’s post on www.actionnetwork.org. This is an organization attempting to get reasonable webcasting fees that will not force small community radio stations like KPFZ to stop streaming their shows.
From the Future of Music Colation’s post on Action Network’s website:
We support fair and transparent payment to artists and rightsholders when their work is used. We also recognize that small webcasters are vitally important to musical culture, whether it’s small community FM stations or online webcasters who program niche music. Webcasting reflects far greater diversity—from cutting edge releases by contemporary artists to America’s rich and varied musical traditions. And unlike commercial FM, internet radio pays musicians and labels. The relationship between artists and small webcasters is mutually supportive. This dynamic must be preserved. The expiration of the Webcaster Settlement Act has left many small webcasters facing a steep increase in rates and unsure of their future survival. We’re optimistic that a solution can be found to allow many small commercial webcasters to continue to operate, important music played and artists paid—directly, transparently and fairly. Stay tuned for updates and opportunities to take action. For now, please sign up to be notified of the latest developments.Comments Off
