KWTF Radio is a new Community Supported Radio project dedicated to local arts, culture and news. KWTF currently has an online community radio station at www.kwtf.net and is fundraising for a full power broadcast station, at 88.1 FM, to serve Santa Rosa and Western Sonoma County.
This campaign for $10,000 will help us build a production studio, where programmers can come record their shows. Having our own studio will let us produce live broadcasts, call-in shows, and pre-recorded music and talk shows. It will also get us one step closer to buidling a local news room.
What We Need & What You Get
KWTF Radio relies on grassroots funding and we are raising $80,000 to build, maintain, and operate our station. We expect to go on air this March, providing grassroots programs and serving an audience not currently served by other local radio stations.
- KWTF already is a source of new music, news, literary, and interview shows not available on other stations in Sonoma County. It's hard for local artists and community groups to get consistent coverage on the radio in Sonoma County, we hope to change that.
- The people involved in KWTF have already opened community centers and book stores, run record labels, founded historic social movements, authored books, operated small businesses and non-profits, produced award winning radio shows, and have worked with a wide variety of community media outlets. We are excited to bring a new and much needed grassroots community media source to Sonoma County.
- Check out our internet station at www.kwtf.net. Currently we are releasing 6 to 8 hours a day of fresh content.

$10: KWTF Pin and Bumper Sticker.
Everyone should have some reminder of KWTF in view at all times! We've got that covered with pins and stickers. Both are fashionably understated: the pins are 1 inch and have various versions of our logo, the stickers are 3"x 10" vinyl with our URL and logo in black and white.
$25: KWTF t-shirt.
If a pin and sticker aren't enough of a support statement pick up a shirt, plus all of the above. The shirt features the KWTF logo on an organic cotton t-shirt in any size mens and womens cuts. Please comment or message with size and cut preferences.
