SLO County United Way Community Radio Station KYXZ

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit United Way of San Luis Obispo County, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

To meet the growing demand to make KYXZ 107.9 FM, Low Power Community Radio available to listeners outside the area of our broadcast signal, we need to raise enough money to cover the annual music licensing and streamcast hosting fees. Because we are a community radio station it’s not a whole lot of money; just $3500 per year will enable us to better server our County of San Luis Obipso, CA and beyond!

Excellent Radio (1995-98) was among the early pioneers of the movement to create a process by which communities could legally apply for positions on the publicly owned airwaves.  The station was created as a model that became an inspiration to many other communities throughout the United States.

In 1998 the Grover Beach City Council issued an official proclamation recognizing Excellent Radio for broadcasting City Council meetings for three years and providing...  
   • A forum for community members to discuss local issues”
   • A diverse cultural selection of musical entertainment”
   • Easy and convenient access to local government information”
   • Educating and entertaining members of the community”
Today through a coming together of groups like United Way, and friends and advocates for the local county libraries, the likelihood of successful community strengthening is huge! The new Excellent Radio will be dedicated to fostering….
   • Cross–Generational respect
   • Cultural Literacy 
   • Recognition of the Libraries as the centerpiece of the community (The Commons) 
   • Mentoring through United Way’s outreach programs of Health, Education and Income
This station will support strengthening and educating our community for years to come. What better gift for our children could we give today?

Studio is located in Grover Beach. The transmitter and antenna is located on the Nipomo Mesa overlooking the entire South County.
