Campus and community radio station KDVS, 90.3 FM, kicks off a week of on-air fundraising and fundraising events starting at midnight Monday.

The on-air fundraiser continues through Sunday, April 27. KDVS DJs will break from normal programming and ask listeners and supporters to donate to the station at fundraiser.kdvs.org or by calling 530-754-KDVS.

Listeners who pledge can select from a wide range of premiums (thank-you gifts), including T-shirts, music, books, gift certificates and KDVS merchandise. Donors who pledge $150 have the option of DJing their own one-hour radio show at the KDVS studios. A complete list of premiums is available at fundraiser.kdvs.org.

This year, KDVS also will present numerous events intended to complement the on-air fundraiser and provide activities for the community while raising additional funds for the station.

* Raja’s Tandoor, 207 Third St., will host a KDVS night on Monday;

* Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, 129 E St., will host a DJ night on Wednesday;

* Witch Room, 1815 19th St. in Sacramento, will host a concert on Thursday;

* Delta of Venus, 122 B St., will host a Dance Night on Friday; and

* G Street Wunderbar, 228 G St., will host a concert on Saturday, April 26.

KDVS also will have a presence at the Davis Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturday.

With studios in Lower Freeborn Hall at UC Davis, KDVS has a long tradition as a noncommercial, freeform media outlet. KDVS features public affairs programs with diverse opinions, and musical selections leaning toward the obscure and not-yet-discovered.

KDVS started broadcasting in 1964 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The station broadcasts at a new, improved tower with a signal strength of 13,000 watts. KDVS’ stronger signal can reach listeners in Vacaville, Fairfield, Sacramento, Woodland and even Auburn. The improved signal means more opportunities to create lifelong listeners and foster relationships with the community.

As for computer automation, you won’t hear any of that on KDVS: The station’s live human DJs do radio shows around the clock, 24/7 (yes, even at 3 a.m.). DJs painstakingly prepare their radio programs each week, with the intention of challenging and educating listeners — you never know what you’re going to hear next.
