Greetings from GMCR & KURU

Bon Voyage – for the summer – to Aldo on Air!

Aldo on Air / Milo Lambert Aldo on Air / Echo Smalley Aldo on Air / Sharman Russell

GMCR would like to thank Deb Preusch and Aldo Leopold Charter School for giving
GMCR / KURU the opportunity to participate in their internship program, and, of course, our three interns Milo Lambert, Echo Smiley and Zach Horner, and the many Aldo students and others that have been guests on Aldo on Air – not least of whom is Sharman Apt Russell who appeared last week.

We’re looking forward to resuming Aldo on Air in the fall with the new semester and would also like to encourage other Aldo students to consider GMCR / KURU as a choice for your internship requirement.   Where else can you be the host of your own radio show?  Feel free to contact us if you have questions.  Call the station, drop by at Bullard & 6th, or drop us a line at aoa@GMCR.org (aoa null@null GMCR NULL.org).


Give Grandly! (https://www NULL.givegrandly NULL.org/#npo/gila-mimbres-community-radio)We’d also like to congratulate and thank
Grant County Community Foundation (http://grantcountycommunityfoundation NULL.org/) for all their efforts in presenting Give Grandly! on behalf of our local non-profit community and, of course, all of you that attended the festivities last week at Gough Park or donated online.  GMCR and  Earth Matters co-producers Gila Resources Information Project and Upper Gila Watershed Alliance were all in the top 12 recipients.  We are gratified to receive such strong support  for GMCR and the producers of our flagship environmental program.  But we’re not alone and over 40 organizations in Southwest New Mexico participated in – and benefited from – this annual effort to keep the wind in local sails.  Thanks GG!


Early in our development we envisioned 1,000 members as a critical mass to insure stable operations and an editorial independence.  We are greatly encouraged by your support in our recent Pledge Drive which resulted in dozens of new members, but we still have a long way to go to reach that 1,000 member threshold.

For those of you that missed the Pledge Drive or Give Grandly, it’s never the wrong time to become a member and supporter so here’s an opportunity to Step Up.

It’s easy to become a member… Just click here > GMCR.org/support and you can become a member at various levels of support, make a one time donation in any amount, or create a monthly subscription via PayPal.  Scroll down that page for the option to pay by credit card without having a PayPal account.

Or if you prefer, Click Here to download and print a membership form, stick it in an envelope with your check payable to GMCR and drop it in the mail or save a stamp and just drop it in the mail slot in our front door at…
