Local non-profit Common Frequency will host a benefit concert and panel discussion at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at the UC Davis Technocultural Studies building on campus.
The evening will center around a discussion panel called, “Whose Stations? Our Stations! Community Voices, Educational Radio and KUSF in Exile.” Advocates for people-powered radio will discuss current threats to student and community stations nationwide, highlighted by the sale of the Bay Area’s KUSF in January.
The event is free. For a donation, guests will be treated to dinner and refreshments donated by Full Belly Farm and Davis Food Co-Op, prepared by The People’s Food. Representatives from area radio projects will speak before the panel.
At 9 p.m., local band Tha Dirt Feelin will begin the live music, followed by Mucky the Ducky, Pregnant and Magikool Doods. Proceeds go directly to Common Frequency, which is seeking to connect Davis’ local media institutions with regional efforts supporting independent artists and public interest news.
