We still need your support to keep our community radio station growing strong.

This spring our membership drive theme is "Spring Renewal." Our members are KDNK's roots and your support helps produce local news, public affairs, public service announcements, youth programs and music.

The membership drive begins on February 23 and we will be requesting donations until March 9, or as soon as we reach our membership goal.

KDNK is offering a sunflower and lettuce seed package to all family members and above, plus the great "KDNK BOOTY" boxer shorts. We will have a contest to see who can grow the tallest sunflower in town and you will have tasty greens to feed your family all summer long.

Sustainable level members and above can enjoy the seed packages plus the "KDNK BOOTY" boxer shorts and a KDNK hat or the KDNK pirate boat flag.

Individual members are welcome to the sunflower seeds and a CD from our voluminous collection of new music.

KDNK appreciates all members from pets to individuals to Record Club members. Please call 963-0139 or click on Support.
