Davis Media Access: Open your wallets for community media

By
From page A3 | May 29, 2014 |

On a truly lovely late-spring evening May 22, friends and supporters of the Davis Music Festival and KDRT, 95.7 FM, gathered at the Sudwerk Dock Store for a lively little fundraiser. The Dock Store workers told us it was one of the best events held there to date, and we reveled in that during our five-hour live broadcast from the event.

I’d like to thank Danny Tomasello and Sara Eley of the Davis Music Festival for the idea and execution, along with Andres Dongo. To the musicians — The Lurk, Owl Paws and the Bottom Dwellers — many thanks. And to the many KDRT and Davis Media Access folks who helped out, and the friends who came down to help make it a great evening — thank you, too! Word is that this just might become an annual event. Stay tuned.

Thank you also to everyone who participated in the May 6 Big Day of Giving. The statistics were truly impressive: More than 18,000 donors came to together to raise more than $3 million for nonprofits in our region. Davis’ 95616 ZIP code had the highest number of donors. Our community clearly understands the value of nonprofits to our collective well-being.

Both of these events are part of DMA’s ongoing annual appeal. We reach out to the community for support of some of our signature programs, including youth media projects, local election coverage, and KDRT. All of these programs, in turn, help us support myriad nonprofits, neighborhood-based organizations,and civic activities in Yolo County. We’ve been using media to strengthen community for 25 years.

Right now, we’re working to find better ways to connect with and serve the downtown community in Davis. We’ve expanded our election coverage to other districts within Yolo, and are exploring ways to improve broadband connectivity in the county. At the same time, we’re working to keep our equipment and training updated to reflect the most modern approaches.

Chances are good that you’ve played a role in DMA’s growth. If you’ve appeared on a program, watched or listened to something locally created, had an event covered or promoted, attended a workshop, or had a family member benefit from our training or internships, then you’ve been part of community media in Davis.

Election night: Join hosts Andrea Jones and Lea Rosenberg with a cast of many, live on the air Tuesday from 8 to 11 p.m. They’ll be chatting with City Council candidates, Assembly candidates, outgoing Assembly member Mariko Yamada, Davis Enterprise columnist Bob Dunning and more.

Tune in live to DCTV Channel 15 on Comcast, or find the programming at Menu 99 on AT&T’s U-verse. We’ll provide a live stream of the show that night as well, and I’ll get that link up on our social media and websites in advance.

If you are still wrestling with your ballot-box decisions, DMA has an archive of voter education programming for you. Find forums, candidate statements and information about Measures O and P at https://dctv.davismedia.org/collections/election.

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