 KRRC 

krrc is Reed College's radio station that has been active since 1954. It is an integral part of the community that broadcasts music and unique shows-- 24/7 worldwide.
This space gives students training using hardware in creative ways and is viewed as a necessary outlet for a large portion of the student body. Memories are made here and skills are gained.
On October 13th, 2016 we experienced a devastating theft in which all of our equiment was stolen. Almost none of the equipment was insured and several pieces were very rare. We lost approximately $7k.

Objects that were stolen & need replacement:
1 Arrakis Broadcast Console ARC-10UP 
2 Pioneer CDJ-1000 MK2 
1 Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB mixer
2 Technics SL-1200 M3D turntables (very rare model)
2 Shure SM78 condenser microphones 
3 black XLRs  
2 Technics SFPCC31001K Headshell with Shure M44-7 cartridge and Shure stylus attached 

Due to this event, KRRC is CLOSED. We need your help to get things up and running again!
Any contribution is greatly apprectiated.

Hello!

I want to thank everyone who donated. Your support means everything to us. We have officially transferred the money into Reed's Student Body account and we are now in the process of buying new equipment. More bars have been installed on the windows and we are moving forward. Thank you all so much! KRRC will be forever appreciative.

Respectfully,
Gabby
KRRC Manager

Hello, I am KRRC's current Station Manager. I am writing this update to thank everybody for their generosity and to address some questions that were raised in the comments section. The items that were stolen from the studio were accumulated over the past decade which means there were several changes of leadership during this time. The iMac computer that was stolen is insured by Reed and will therefore be replaced by the college. However, the rest of the equipment mentioned in the description above was not. In order to save money, previous managers have bought equipment from friends or craigslist and thus the majority of our hardware was not properly insured. Since KRRC is completely funded by the STUDENT BODY, the college has not offered to help us in anyway. I talked to the student body treasury and they do not have the space in their budget to replace all of our stolen goods. Therefore, the treasury instructed the staff to start fundraising. With your donations, we will repurchase all of the missing goods and buy insurance for the new equipment. Our goal as of now is to get the station broadcasting again. We are also working with the college to install better security and new windows in the studio so that an incident like this doesn't happen again. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (wolcottg@reed.edu).

So Reed has the resources and I'd be surprised that the theft would not be covered under the Colleges umbrella policy. I'm left a bit puzzled as to the ask. Is there something that I'm missing?

Yeah, I'm a little skeptical, too. Gabrielle, can you please provide more details of who is sponsoring this campaign, their roles and affiliation with the radio station, how the money will be used, and an explanation of KRRC's relationship with the college? I'm really surprised it's not covered under the College's policy. I'm also wary of providing money to KRRC if its management didn't think to get insurance.

Thanks for providing those details Gabrielle! Sounds like you are all taking appropriate action and making sure the station is better protected going forward.

Sorry to hear about the loss of equipment. I got my start at KRRC and it was a great place to learn radio with a maximum of autonomy and a minimum of pressure. I'm at KBOO now, another bastion of non-corporate radio. Not too many of those left.

Best of luck getting KRRC back on air! When you do, please play "Science of Myth" by Screeching Weasel. It was on heavy rotation when I was a DJ. XoX from Brooklyn
