GMCR / KURU Pledge Drive - Wheee!

Greetings from Jamie Newton
Gila / Mimbres Community Radio
Board of Directors / Chair

Gila/Mimbres Community Radio (GMCR) and KURU 89.1 FM will hold our Pledge Drive and On-Air Fiesta Thursday-Saturday, October 13-15, 2016. This fundraiser and membership drive is planned as a three-day party, morning through evening, featuring live on-air music with local and visiting musicians, poetry readings, interviews with local personalities and hosts of locally produced programs, and many of the regularly scheduled programs that have made the station a valued resource for the community.

GMCR and KURU broadcast music, news and public affairs, cultural and educational topics, and commentary, with Spanish-language in addition to English programming. Locally produced programs include Earth Matters, Local Flavor, Civil Discourse¸ Roots and Branches, Jazz from the Gila, and Use Your Words.

The Pledge Drive and On-Air Fiesta aims to build on the station’s nearly three years of broadcasting quality local and national programs 24 hours/day. Goals include adding 100 new members and raising $25,000 to sustain GMCR/KURU’s development and service to Grant County and beyond, offering a voice and a choice to Southwest New Mexico.

To join or donate, call 575-597-4891, visit on the web, or visit us at the station at 519 B North Bullard Street / corner of 6th Street across from The Hub and Silcer City Food Coop in beautiful downtown Silver City.

Content is King!

While there are myriad issues and concerns that occupy the board and staff of GMCR, none are more important to our listeners than the quality of what we broadcast.  We are pleased with – and gratified by your response to – our vision of a dynamic mix of music, arts, and culture along with public affairs, Spanish language, and locally produced programs.

In the coming weeks we will be presenting extensive coverage of the November elections from a national and local perspective and we’d like to bring your attention to these programs.
