KMUD / Redwood Community Radio wants to thank the community for coming out to participate in our annual Members Meeting and Appreciation Party on Sunday, Jan. 27 at the Mateel. Both the meeting and the party were well attended and a very productive exchange of information took place concerning KMUD’s current status, including the station’s stable financial position entering 2019.
Many thanks to many, many individuals and businesses for their help. The Mateel Community Center, Lagunitas Brewery, Humboldt Distillery, Redway Liquors, and the Lost Frenchman are among the businesses that provided welcome contributions. Babette Bach and her kitchen crew— Scott, Varga, Vicki, Jamie, Lynn, Maureen,  Dave, Katy, George, Kathy, and Emily—spent hours putting together a veritable feast.  Bob Froehlich put great effort  getting the bar together with help from Barbara, Duff and Shaka.
Thanks also to Bobby G for helping with the Appreciation Awards Ceremony, Gardner and Lauren for managing the rousing Name That Tune contest and Ian, Dennis and Noel for providing the party music.  Also a big thanks to Jama Chaplin for helping coordinate the event. Lots of others contributed and there is always the danger of leaving people out, but mainly the KMUD Board wants to thank the community for your continued support of this valuable resource.  Sincerely, Jimmy Durchslag, President
