Seasons Greeting from the staff at KDB 93.7FM to you!                          

Here is a Message from KDB's General Manager:

  Tim Owens

     Happy Holidays, everyone! As we close out the calendar year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who listen and contribute to KDB with your donations and advertising support.

    You have allowed us to accomplish so much this year. We have broadened our classical presentation, added live announcers and even won a major journalism award for our feature on the Santa Barbara Choral Society. We've presented live broadcasts of the Santa Barbara Symphony and dozens of recorded concerts from the Music Academy of the West, SB Chamber Orchestra, Camerata Pacifica and others. We've built on our partnerships with arts organizations in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, and started new ones. We seem to be moving in the right direction because more of you are listening to KDB than ever before.

    We have great plans for KDB in 2013 to provide you with an even better classical music and arts service. Help us keep the momentum going by ending this year on a sound financial note. As you consider your charitable gifts to end the year, please consider an additional, tax- deductible gift to KDB through the Santa Barbara Foundation's KDB Fund. Simply donate online safely and securely at www.KDB.com. Or, call 888-KDB-2733. Every contribution you make is vitally important.

      On behalf of KDB's staff, Board of Directors and the Santa Barbara Foundation, thank you for valuing and supporting this local community treasure.


- Tim Owens / Vice-President & General Manager
