Hello Radio friends,
We wanted to share with you that we have found a home!! We will be sharing a space with the Santa Cruz Bulletin, upstairs on Central Ave. in downtown Boulder Creek. It’s above Jenna Sue’s Cafe. It’s a nice upstairs corner spot where we will be able to hang a sign/banner and be able to see all that happens in town. Also we are pleased to be sharing the space with The Bulletin, so we can share news and information. We’re excited to finally begin to build the station!
Hello and welcome! Here is what we’ve been up to as we build Boulder Creek Community Radio. We started a fundraising page on Gofundme.com and we hit our 30 day goal in just 8 days! We raised $1,500. Thanks to everyone who donated. If you missed it, don’t worry, there will be plenty more. As you know, there are expenses involved with starting and running a radio station. As a non-commercial station, we will need continuous support.
We are in the process of setting up a website at www.kbcz.org where you will be able to get information. One of the first things we would like to set up is an RSS feed streaming on our site and available on your mobile device that will give you up to the minute local traffic and weather for the SLV area. We also plan to stream our broadcast from there so you will be able to listen to KBCZ anywhere in the world.
We have also set up a Facebook page. Please visit and click “Like” so we are connected. Our page is https://www.facebook.com/BCRadioNow
On-Air Studio Location
We are currently searching for a location to put our broadcast studio. Our dream is to have a window downtown on highway 9 where you can easily stop in and share information with us. We are finding these spaces to be out of our budget for right now. So, if you know of a place that would be perfect for a studio, please let us know. We would be willing to pay a reasonable rent and we could offer monthly sponsorship opportunities for a landlord who has a business to promote.
Get Your KBCZ T-Shirt! (first batch collectors item)
Our KBCZ T-shirts were very popular but, we still have a few left in black and white. These are the very first batch and we are sure they will be a collectors item. We marked them with the year 2013. If you would like to order one, they are $20 and help us with our start up costs. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what color and size you would like.
Get Involved (Ground floor opportunity)
If you are interested in getting involved with KBCZ, we will need lots of help. We will need people to help with operations, engineering, community/school outreach, fundraising, facilities, etc. You don’t need to have radio experience to get involved and you don’t have to donate all of your free time. Even a few hours a month can be helpful.
What do you have that you no longer need that could help KBCZ? Do you have FM equipment, CDs, records, CD players, furniture, lights, computers, space heaters, AC units, storage cabinets, office supplies, or anything else that we could possibly use? We would appreciate any donations.
Current License Status
We are planning to finish the purchase of the license for KBCZ over the next few months. The FCC requires that the proper paperwork is filed and reviewed before the sale can take place.
We have set a goal of July 2014 for our official kickoff. However, we plan to begin broadcasting recorded content in early 2014 and we will slowly be adding live shows in primetime slots for the first half of the year. We also hope to get our online stream going and that could even take place before we hit the airwaves.
Do you have a cool idea for a KBCZ fundraiser? Do you like to throw parties? We have great bands that will donate their time to play your event to raise money for the station. Have another idea? We would love to hear it!

Community Radio for Boulder Creek and the surrounding San Lorenzo Valley is coming soon! What would you like to hear on your community radio station? What news and information do you want to see on KBCZ.org? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, thanks!
