It’s been 26 years since KZMU, Moab’s community radio station, signed on to the airwaves. On Monday, April 2, supporters and listeners are invited to the station’s birthday party at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center from 4 to 6 p.m. Admission is free and music will be provided by the Fiery Furnace Marching Band, with a cameo appearance by the cast of the recent radio play, Beautiful Radiant Things.

Beverages and birthday cake will be served, and music director Serah Mead will conduct a live auction of special items to benefit the station.

KZMU has survived for nearly two years without funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which previously contributed $90,000 per year toward the station’s operations. CPB deemed KZMU “too small to survive” and pulled support in the fall of 2016.

According to station manager Marty Durlin, KZMU has continued to create new programming and recently hired former The Times-Independent reporter Molly Marcello to create a regular, daily news report.

The KZMU News debuts at noon on April 2. For more information, call Durlin at 435-359-8824.
