The month long KSDB Make It Rain Fundraiser started last week. Lucas Peterson with KSDB provided the second 2 PM Sunday update on how the fundraiser is going, the previous week’s events, and what is coming up in the next few days. Be sure to follow KSDB on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates on the fundraiser and event information. If you want to donate visit https://www.gofundme.com/ksdbfm 10% of all money raised will be donated to the Ethiopia Reads charity.
Last week KSDB raised $660 from 14 different donors which was a great first week of fundraising. Also KSDB held a Trivia Night where listeners could answer live trivia question in order to win concert tickets. We received over 20 calls and lots of tweets while listeners competed to answer the trivia. Also last week local musician Ryan Laetari visited KSDB in our McCain Auditorium studios for the Classroom Series. It was a loud and well played set that left everyone’s ears ringing!
Coming up next week is the continuation of 3 PM daily trivia where listeners will have a chance to win music tickets to shows in Lawrence and Kansas City. At 3 PM for the month of April a trivia question will be asked and the first person to call 785-532-0919 with the correct answer will win the tickets. Also coming up is a scavenger hunt that will start Wednesday at noon. Golden records will be hidden around campus and clues for their locations will be given out on our social media. Finding these golden records are a good way to win even more concert tickets. Wednesday night from 7-8 is the Campus Carry Round Table featuring a panel of three Kansas legislators, K-State professors, and the K-State administration. The panel will discuss the expiration of the public university exemption for allowing concealed carry of firearms. And finally, the Classroom Series Friday night will feature Gnarly Davidson from Lawrence who will start playing at 7pm.
