Davis Media Access: Generosity makes things happen

By
From page A3 | June 26, 2014 |

Whether through my work with Davis Media Access or with other community involvements, I so often feel like a professional cajoler, encouraging people to “please show up/participate/make your voice heard/support this work/contribute.”

In a community of caring folks, I am in good company! But this month, I’m just going to share good news and provide appropriate thanks to many people.

Thank you to our generous community: DMA spent the month of May-into-June conducting our annual fundraising campaign. Our must-meet goal was $20,000 in support of key programs and services including KDRT 95.7 FM, youth media projects and local election coverage. When we’d cleared that, we decided to go for our stretch goal of $25,000, honoring our 25th year of community service. I’m pleased to announce that as of June 24, we have reached that goal.

For all of you who participated and helped shared the word — whether through participation in the Big Day of Giving, direct donations, or fundraising events — thank you for your generosity. And thank you for believing in the power of small media and local content to make a big difference in our community. Our donor list may be viewed at https://davismedia.org/content/celebrate-25-years-community-media-our-2013-14-donors.

Scholer, Melton, Bruce and King: Looking forward, I’m happy to announce a very special evening of music on Friday, July 11. DMA and the Davis Odd Fellows co-present a benefit for KDRT. The concert features Waiting for Bruce with Bill Scholer, and special guest Barry “The Fish” Melton. Bonanza King opens. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. The evening will operate much as the Odd Fellows’ First Thursday concerts do, with donations collected. All proceeds will help fund the purchase of new field recording equipment for grassroots radio station KDRT.

The power of local radio is exemplified by its ability to connect musicians and their music with local audiences, thereby building capacity. Thanks to KDRT Steering Committee members Diane Crumley, for her work organizing this event, and Jim Buchanan, who records many local concerts for which said equipment is used. And finally, thanks to the Odd Fellows Community Support, Music and Concert Committees, for opening their doors to make this a co-presented event. Stayed tuned to http://kdrt.org for more information and additional details.

Recent programming highlights: On “In the Studio,” Tyler Shaffo hosts Lynn Kimsey, Ph.D., director, and Steven Heydon, collection manager, both of the Bohart Museum of Entomology at UC Davis. http://bit.ly/1iuJUeq’

Lin Weaver hosts Christopher Cappa, associate professor of environmental engineering, UC Davis. The episode focuses on climate change. http://bit.ly/1qHCPJI

As well, Weaver hosts Jeff Reisig, Yolo County district attorney; Jesse Ortiz; and Carlos Matos, co-chairs of the Multi-Cultural Community Council. http://bit.ly/1q5SId5

In late May, the city of Davis hosted two workshops for the local community to discuss planning and share ideas for the Davis Nishi Gateway. The May 28 workshop was recorded by Davis Media Access and the focus was on mobility, open space and community character opportunities for the Davis Nishi Gateway. http://bit.ly/1wu1xO6

Graduations: DMA records all five local high-school graduations (Davis High School, DaVinci Charter Academy, King High School, Davis School for Independent Study and Davis Adult School). We make available a special commemorative recording of each, and you can find more info about that at http://djusd.tv/order-dvd
