Dear KMUD Supporter,
By now I should say, dear KMUD Family member, since that is what makes community radio so special.  It is that unique connection we all have with one another through radio.   KMUD is a place to bring people together to agree, to disagree, to learn, to grow, but most of all, a place to talk about what matters most to our communities, and that is, what is going on with us.
This Spring, KMUD celebrates its 28th year on air, and as the years pass and KMUD grows and evolves, so does our listenership.  We hope you will stay tuned as we bring you the KMUD Green Revolution, twelve days of special programming about all things green, spring, and sustainable. 
Also, for our special Green Revolution Pledge Drive, we are offering you, our silent but sure donors who continue to give in your unique way, a thank you, with the opportunity to win an eco-adventure on the beautiful island of Kauai!  This give-away will include airfare for two on Hawaiian Airlines to Kauai out of Oakland, and a 5-day stay at the lush and breathtaking North Country Farms in a lovely cabin.
KMUD will also be giving away dozens of other prizes for donors who give during the Silent Drive, so please return your letter (download it here) on or before Friday April 17th 2015 to be included in the drawings. Or why not donate online right now, we'll enter you in the drawing right away.
What keeps KMUD green and thriving is the part you play in the creation of it. So, I encourage you to get involved.  Become a Volunteer; on and off air Volunteering at KMUD can really show you the inner world of radio and community.  Consider joining the Board of Directors, or Citizens Advisory Board, to give direct feedback on what you hear on KMUD.  Become a Member, with a sliding scale we ask that you give what you can to support KMUD.  Your contribution keeps us going, and keeps you engaged by making you a part of the KMUD decision-making process.  KMUD Members vote for the Board of Directors, and at KMUD, it is the Members who truly own the station.  So, become a part of something bigger than just you or me, become a part of KMUD, or consider doing just a little bit more.
Thank you, on behalf of the Pledge Drive Committee,
Jeanette Todd

KMUD’s Grand Prize to the Island of Kauai

Spring Eco-Adventure at North Country Farms


North Country Farms , a beautiful, fully organic four-acre property in Kilauea, Kauai. In addition to growing produce the farm houses two bed-and-breakfast cottages.

The farm is just minutes away from some of the island's most secluded and pristine beaches. You can go kayaking on the islands many rivers and ocean (in the summer months), hiking on the magnificent Na Pali Coast and other equally spectacular trails, snorkeling over dramatic reefs, or just take in the sheer natural beauty the island has to offer.  They are also just a short drive to many fine clothing and gift shops, restaurants, bakeries, gourmet delis, and art galleries, as well as moments from the spectacular Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.  North Country Farms is a perfect blend of a relaxed getaway with endless activities possible!

The winner of KMUD’s Spring Silent Drive will be flying with a friend on Hawaiian Airlines from Oakland to Kauai and staying 5 days at the beautiful and breathtaking North Country Farms.

Fall, 2014

Dear Friend of Redwood Community Radio,

If you’ve been listening to the Mud over the past few months, you’ve heard some very special programming.  In February, we focused on water-related issues; in April, we explored the world of cannabis; and in August, we explained how to protect your family and property from fire.

This fall, KMUD will extend the previous themes of water, earth, and fire to bring you special programming celebrating AIR, specifically, the air we use to broadcast a wide range of music and public affairs. We will be exploring the ways we are using our grassroots community airwaves in building community.

We all count on up-to-date information from the renowned KMUD Local News, especially with fire and persistent drought still on our minds. As we look forward to the winter rains, please remember just how important your support of the only local daily newscast will be, in the month ahead.
Our Grand Silent Drive Prize this fall is a Caribbean Vacation aboard a 36-foot Sailing Yacht, to be drawn Wednesday, October 22.  See details on the other side of this letter. Silent Drive drawings for donated prizes begin October 10, and will be drawn weekly until the On-air Drive begins, Thursday, October 23. Our goal this fall is $95,000, and your early contribution will give us a head start. The more money that comes in during the Silent Drive, the faster we will reach our goal, and the quicker we can return to the eclectic mix of music and talk you’ve come to expect from your Voice in the Redwoods.

Please donate as generously as your means will allow, and help us to continue our proud, 27-year-old tradition of bringing People-Powered Radio to your hearts and minds.

On behalf of KMUD’s Board of Directors, Programmers, Volunteers, and Staff,
Thank You in advance! 


To make it easier to enter the raffle, download the printable letter, fill it out, send it to KMUD, PO Box 135, Redway, CA 95560

Alternatively, why not make a pledge online, we'll add you to the raffle!

By completing your Silent Drive Letter coupon, and sending it back to KMUD, you will be eligible to win a week-long adventure of a lifetime!
The journey will begin on beautiful St. John where you will meet up with Captain Jimmy of Kiote Sails. You will sail out of Coral Bay and adventure to multiple stops in the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.  You will learn of true pirate lore, snorkel with some of the most vivid tropical fish in the world, and lounge on private beaches. 
See Kiote Sails at: www.kiotesails.com
