KUR News (4/13/10)

From 88.3 FM KUR's website:
  • Thanks to everyone for making KUR's first large birthday party, celebrating 5 years on-air, the raging success it was! Thanks to all our supporters at KU, all the students, & community listeners, all of the KUR members who give the station personality, the decorating crew, to Mike McVicar & Brian Darling for pulling off an amazing remote broadcast, to the Fish Relics for an amazing show, and to anyone else we're missing. THANK YOU!

    We're truly amazed at the stellar turnout and having a ton of people we didn't even know knew about us show up to say they are faithful listeners and fans of the station. We're bigger than we even realize and it couldn't be possible without all of you! Thank you!

    We'll get some pictures of the great event posted soon.
Also, elections for the 2010-2011 Executive Board were held today during our Tuesday 11:00 AM General Members meeting. Here are the results:
  • NEW President: Jim Adair (!) (Senior; Production Director of KUR; Co-host of Never Mind the Mainstream. Congratulations, Big Jim.)
  • NEW Vice President: Kevin Rose (Junior; Host of a blues and folk show on Thursday nights.)
  • NEW Secretary: Enzo Carrante (Sophomore; Host of an oldies show on Friday afternoons.)
  • Treasurer: Blake Kepner (Senior; Co-host of a variety show on Thursday nights.)
Congratulations to all the new leaders. It appears the males in the station will be running the machine next year. I, sadly, will be graduating. But this crew is great and I am expecting big things from them.

Finally, there will be a KUR Car Wash, this Saturday (4/17) at The Kutztown Fire Company, from 9 AM - 3 PM. If you're a local, come by a get your car washed and ready for Spring, all for $5. Hope to see you there!
