Help KRRC get back on their feet!
$7,340 of $7,000 goal
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.
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.
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.
