It’s that time of year again: when we ask those of you who enjoy the great programming, news, music and all the great local content we’ve been unearthing on The Big Something to join our community. Yes, it’s an unusual way of going about things—to give away all this amazing (and expensive!) content and then pass the hat and say, “Hey, would you please join our community and help support this grand and worthwhile effort that helps us all connect to make this a better place to live?” It’s kind of hard to believe that only 1 in 10 people who enjoy these free offerings is actually a member. Imagine how much more we could do if 2 out of 10 of you would join!

As a bonus thanks to those of you who join online, we’re offering a special six-song mix of music we recorded here at KRCC in the studio or at one our many fabulous concerts over the past six months. In it, you will find songs by Great Lake Swimmers, Diane Cluck, Lo-Fi Cowboys, Lukas Nelson, Edith Makes a Paperchain and Alexandra Hope. You’ll find the link to download the songs as a .zip file link on the Thank You page once you’ve joined or renewed by clicking here:

Thanks for being part of our community!
