As we begin 2017, we are entering our 4th year of FM broadcast.  No small feat!

We are delighted with the outpouring of support we’ve received that has allowed us to keep the doors open, the transmitter humming, the music flowing, and the local, national and Spanish language public affairs programming comin’ atcha!

With a few very generous donations from a few of our better heeled folk, additional financing from a small group that loaned us money to bridge the gaps and the consistent and increasing support of our entire membership, we have managed to get this far without reliance upon foundation / grant / institutional funding.


We are still operating at 1/2 of our very modest projected budget and struggling to raise our revenues to a level that can support paid staff.  We are pursuing some additional funding via grant applications and also have some ambitious plans for pursuing funding for new content that will have an appeal beyond Southwest New Mexico.  Stay Tuned!

Similarly, we need community members to

Jump In!

Roll up your sleeves and become an integral part of GMCR / KURU’s growth and success.  We need folks to learn to engineer & edit, organize fundraising events, engage in community outreach, and add to our toolbox of resources with your experience, creativity, and energy.  The sky’s the limit!

Having said that, we also wish to entreat those that are listening to and enjoying GMCR / KURU to become a member.  Our vision was that we would attract 1,000 members at the basic level of $60 annually.  We are updating our current tally but are certainly approaching 300 members.  Only 700 to go!

Help us build upon the station’s nearly 4 1/2 years of internet streaming and 3 years of FM broadcast of local and national programs.
