Cash speaks in the public radio business.  Providing quality music, news, informational programs, and a training facility for students – that’s what KPVU-FM 91.3 does for you. It helps us make our case that the radio broadcast  industry is important and its viability must stay. We need you to help us.  By supporting your public radio station, KPVU, you understand the value of local radio.  All of our best programming efforts will fall short if KPVU contributions are not there to back up our ongoing progress.  We must continue this fight with our best weapon available: contributions from our alumni, members, and listeners to support our mission and who understand our business, providing music to the masses.
