KGLT, Southwest Montana's alternative public radio station, celebrates 46 years of great music by kicking off their annual fund drive on Sunday, March 23rd.

KGLT 91.9 and 97.1 fm in Bozeman is non-commercial and largely listener-supported, making their annual fund drive a major source of operating revenue. And every year, KGLT's staff of over 80 volunteer DJs take to the airwaves for two weeks to create one of the most entertaining live on-air fund drives you'll ever hear.

We'll offer a wide assortment of gifts donated by local businesses and organizations to entice their listeners to support this rare breed of radio stations.

A collectable KGLT t-shirt and sticker comes with a minimum $50 pledge, and the deal gets sweeter as your pledge increases with music packages, gift certificates, other t-shirt options, hand-made coffee mugs by Mountain Arts Pottery, canvas tote bags and embroidered fleece vests.

Other incentive gifts this year will include certificates for food from your favorite restaurants and coffee shops, services from local businesses -  jewelry, massages and bike tune-ups with large-ticket gift items like a season pass from Bridger Bowl, guitars from Music Villa and a very cool commuter bike from Summit Bike & Ski.

A few more special items this year:  Monthly payments through MSU Alumni Foundation, a Freeman Butts sculpture, and Montana Aleworks graces us once again with a multi-course incredible dinner for 40 on April 29th.  

In this age of corporate consolidation of the airwaves, KGLT remains wild and unfettered, offering a broad swath of music every day from 5am to after midnight. Music offerings vary from the ever-popular Saturday morning bluegrass show with DJs Cathy Ebelke and Jim Albrecht, the zany banter of Keith and Randy on Wednesday afternoon's 'Coffee Show' to Classic Country on 'Cow Jazz' with Deb Robiscoe Thursday mornings 9am to noon. Occasionally, you may even hear the crackle of vinyl from KGLT's extensive 46-year-old record library.

KGLT broadcasts from the MSU campus at 91.9 and 97.1fm in Bozeman, 89.5fm in Livingston, 98.1fm in Helena and in Gardiner/Mammoth at 107.1fm.  Log on to www.kglt.net for live streaming and a complete show schedule.  During the fund drive, you can phone in your pledge at (406) 994-4492, or 800-254-5458.
