MINTURN — Keep the music alive during the final day of the Radio Free Minturn summer fund drive, which ends Saturday, Aug. 11. Right now, donations up to $10,000 will be doubled, thanks to a generous matching grant. All of the proceeds ensure the lights stay on, DJs stay on the air and aging equipment gets replaced.

All-Volunteer run

The nonprofit, noncommercial station is all-volunteer run and 90 percent funded by listeners and valley residents. Each week, nearly 30 DJs enter the studio to spin an eclectic mix of tunes. In addition, Radio Free Minturn offers free airtime to local nonprofits to spread the word through public service announcements.

Radio Free Minturn offers several ways to support community radio. Make a donation through Colorado Gives by going to radiofreeminturn.org and clicking "Support." Businesses may become underwriters and receive recognition for their support by emailing info@radio freeminturn.org. During the fund drive week, gifts will be offered to listeners who call in during a live show to make a donation.
