"Pledge to KVSC to Save the Watts! Resistance is futile!" 

Please excuse the radio nerdiness for a moment... in electrical terms, OHMS are the enemy of the WATT, as it provides resistance. VOLTAGE, and to a lesser extent AMPERAGE, are the allies of the WATT. Become KVSC's voltage or amperage today by becoming a member of KVSC or renewing your membership.

KVSC's Spring on air pledge drive, "Save The Watts," will be taking place April 19-27. We have a goal of obtaining 200 pledges in that time. So pledge your support and help us Save KVSC's Watts today!
