January 8, 2016 - 1:01 pm

KBCS is listener-supported, public radio. The vast majority of our operating budget comes directly from listeners. To raise that support, we hold on-air membership drives each year, as well as year-round membership relations. We are always in need of volunteers to help answer phones and take pledges during pledge drives.

Sign up for volunteer shifts on our Shiftboard.com page.
