Hello. My name is Daniel, and I am the assistant Program Director of internet radio station KFYZ, known as OldiesRadioZ983.com
Oldies Radio Z98.3, KFYZ, is an online radio station designed to offer the classic hits of the 1950's thru 1980's, along with classic specialty radio programs from that era. We present these programs, and the great classic rock, pop and soul hits of 4 decades, to preserve their sound for future generations. We do NOT broadcast to make a profit.
This station's internet feed is presented free to anyone in the world at OldiesRadioZ983.com. However, the cost to present this internet stream is $111 per month. For over 10 years, station owner Jeff Davis has paid this monthly fee by himself.
Jeff Davis is a radio veteran of over 40 years who recently underwent triple bypass open heart surgery in July 2019. Since then he has been unable to work, and his sources of income have all but disappeared. For the past 3 years I have served as his programming assistant, having also spent 42 years as a radio broadcaster.
We are both fearful that this radio "venture" will disappear without any means of support. Therefore, this GoFundMe mission is intended to raise just enough to cover a one-year contract with our streaming service provider. The funds would NOT be used for any other purpose other than station fees.
Keeping KFYZ alive would mean that the world can continue to hear great music that hardly any other radio station - anywhere - will consider playing; and it will allow us to present classic radio programs of the 70's and 80's that no other radio station will play.
Funds are needed as soon as possible.
Both Jeff Davis and I will be truly, eternally grateful for your support of our mission.
