    Woo hoo! Providence and KCHU!

    Lisa Driver with Providence Valdez Counseling Center stopped by the KCHU studio to record a public service announcement about National Depression Screening Day. After her recording Karen Allred waylaid Lisa to talk with her in the booth. Thanks Lisa for not being microphone shy! As her reward Karen played Lisa’s request for “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire. Lisa tells us she attended a concert, met them, and got her picture taken with them! Karen says she is very jealous and that being in the production booth with Lisa is as close as she is going to get to Earth, Wind, and Fire. You too, can get your request played, just call 835-5080 and make a pledge or donation!

    You can also donate/purchase a membership, and get a great new design KCHU tee-shirt from the KCHU Facebook site. Just click the Donate/Purchase tab at the top and it will guide you through the process. If you would like something other than a tee-shirt, you can see all the great incentives at www.kchu.org by holding your mouse over the Donate tab at the top of the page and click on KCHU SCHWAG and MORE GREAT INCENTIVES FOR DONATIONS.

    Alyeska Challenge!

    KCHU is thrilled to have Andres Morales in the studio! Mr. Morales is the SERVS Director for Alyeska. He is in the studio to talk about the Alyeska Challenge.

    Local Alyeska has put up $500 as a challenge to all the KCHU listeners out there!

    All pledges and donations that come in from 3pm today (Friday), through end of the drive on Tuesday, October 7th, will be matched by the local Alyeska up to $500, effectively doubling the value of the individual’s donation!

    Also, for Alyeska employees, not only does the local Alyeska match your donation in this challenge, the corporate Alyeska matches employee donations all year long, with a minimum of a $25 donation and up to a maximum of $2,000. So, that means if you go online and make a donation, or if you call 835-5080 by end of day Tuesday, October 7th, your donation leverages funding from Alyeska to effectively triple the dollar amount being donated to KCHU!
