Greetings interwebbers and happy Spring-time to ye.
There are many KXCJ-LP offical announcements to be made - so read carefully!
This Saturday, April 24th from 10am - 2pm is KXCJ-LPs IVCanDonate Date!
Bring us your recyclables to the Donation station behind the Chevron! KXCJ-LP and Riverstars teamed up to bring you a brand new, 15 - episode radio show - "The Farm Show!" Your can donations helps us raise money to continue creating local radio magic for the I.V.
Speaking of which...
"The Farm Show" - our new original radio show staring The I.V. Riverstars premiered on Tuesday 4/13. It's just 1 of 15 awesome episodes we'll be splicing together for the next 14 weeks! Check it out, every Tuesday at 7pm, after Valley News and Views!
KXCJ-LP will be at the Farmer's Market every other Friday!
Come see what all the fuss is about! The Cave Junction Farmer's Market is lit af this year! There was a flash-mob-dance, hot tamales, sauce, plants, teas, live music, a silent auction...and every other Friday (not this Friday (4/23), but the NEXT Friday 4/30)...KXCJ-LP will be set up right in the center with t-shirts, info, forms, stickers and a sound-byt-booth for radio shout-outs!
The Illinois Valley Community Development Organization or the IVCDO graciously awarded KXCJ-LP a community award for Organization of the Year! Thanks to all our awesome volunteers, listeners and supporters!
Let's keep rockin' and rollin' y'all!

I hope everyone is staying nice and warm out there in radio land!
Whether you're hunkering down next to the fire or stumbling around with your phone light, I know all of you are keeping your spirits high and helping one another.
I'm typing this blog update between blackouts. Our backup generator is working, however, the generator at the tower is waiting to be wired. So we did experience some dead air today.
We're grateful to everyone who helped install our backup system here at KXCJ LP. Our community is growing more resilient with everything that gets thrown at us and the same can be said about our little radio station.
We're premiering a new musical/montage show on Monday. "Saffron Walls with Selector Shu" airs from 2-4pm! Check it out!
There's a snow storm of fresh, creative content coming soon to help us all coast through this dark winter. Radio dramas, stories, a choose-your-own-advernture game show perhaps?
Thanks for staying tuned and thanks for your patience as we build up our infrastructure! Your ongoing support is always appreciated.
Get cozy next to that radio.
Greetings and salutations random Blog readers!
And a happy 2021 from all of us here at KXCJ LP!
Our long awaited STL switch process is still underway. We've been prepping, conference-calling, updating diagrams and ordering gear to get our Emergency Broadcast System up and running with a signal that will sustain itself through power and network outages. We're so close, I can taste it.
We've got a list of long-term projects here at the station, but some will have to wait until its 'safe' to have gatherings and fund raisers.
In the meantime, tune in, drop out and donate to KXCJ if you can! Every little bit helps keep us on the air. Also, T-shirts are for sale at the station, so stop by if you'd like to buy one! kxcj.org/donate
We're also always looking for more volunteers! Right now, we could use a webmaster to eventually handle our new website.
Special thanks to our awesome DJ's, board members and volunteers!
Stay classy and let thy cup runneth over.
