Thank you to everyone who pitched in and helped power KRCL during the Summer Radiothon! Together we raised $140,000! That's just $10,000 shy of our overall goal. We are so grateful to all of our sustainers and donors for getting us to this impressive total. We know how much you all care about community radio, and we are also keenly aware that not everyone can contribute during these troubling times. So, a big heartfelt thank you to everyone who is able to power KRCL for ALL of us!

Here are some of the comments we received at www.krcl.org during this Summer Radiothon.

Marz Catrow - I’ve been listening to KRCL for 20 over years and LOVE it. Ebays show always cheers me up as do all the shows. This station is SO important for our community. Thank you!

Shalise Bailey Marx - If I time my ride to work right I get to hear the protest song of the day as I pull into the school parking lot. As a school teacher I appreciate being inspired by the protest songs to get myself and my students thinking about what is really important in today's world. THANK YOU!!

Kevin Lundmark - Maximum Distortion, Dirty Boulevard, Vagabond Radio, Thursday Night Psych, and whatever it is that Circus Brown does on Fridays - I am a KRCL night owl. Thank you!

Anonymous - Thank you KRCL for being coordinators for the community. Well wishes to KRCL and especially the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation. May our communities continue to persist and resist, and may we continue supporting each other as we are able.

David Simon - Thank you all at KRCL SO MUCH for doing what you do. Here's to another 40 years of killer music -and community lovin'... Love you... :o)

Anonymous - It's been a rough time since March. Thank you KRCL and John Florence for playing music that eases my weary soul.

Ray Cannefax - Listening to John's Brand New Day has been a daily routine for God know how many years. The tunes he plays are classic as well as unique and music I'm just learning about after a life of appreciating good music dating back to Laurel Canyon days when songs were often written and arranged in the cafe or outside the store at the bottom of the canyon - a magical period in time, without doubt. Along with great tunes, Professor Rock & Roll, John Florence provides details about the songs, the artists, the time during which tunes were created, that you just won't get anywhere else.
Thanks for streaming and allowing me to continue to listen to KRCL and It's a Brand New Day when I'm at my new digs in Moab or while I'm roaming the great deserts that make out south-east Utah. I'd be lost without it. Thanks to KRCL's stream, Not All Who Wander Are Lost!
To all who may hear this, please part with a few buck of your hard earned dough and make a contribution to the greatest radio station on earth. Karma will return your contribution with interest!

Torie Okamura - Thank for being on air & doing your own thing for decades.

Michelle Mulder - One of my favorite things about living in northern Utah- Krcl

Mark and Lori Wheatley - You fill our day with hope and joy. Thanks, KRCL!

Robin Ljundberg - Yo KRCL,
I am a sustaining member but I am sending a little extra since I am lucky enough to be still working from home and listening all day. Keep the Faith Baby! We'll get through this together and thanks to KRCL for making it a little easier.

Kellie Mieremet - Thank you KRCL for being the soundtrack to my life. John, you make my mornings! Sincerely, longtime donor, Kellie (already a sustainer, still like to show my support during radiothon)

Doug Drolett - Great music and daily positive vibes all year round

Lee Badger - Waking up to A Brand New Day is one of the best things about living in Utah. Keep up the great tunes.

Joh Roskelley - When you consider the great community resources we have in a town the size of Salt Lake City--KRCL, the Salt Lake City Weekly, the Salt Lake Film Society--it's easy to lose sight of the fact that we are truly fortunate. Having traveled extensively around the country as a family totally dialed into seeking out these types of community resources, trust us when we tell you many cities twice our size and larger have nothing by way of comparison. It is the rare day we're not tuned-in to KRCL. Thank you for helping each and all of us keep our sanity the past several months. John, Zen, and Rex Roskelley

Joelle Dickson - Thanks to all of the hosts for their hard work programming from home and keeping me company and connected to my community. We will get by :)

Mary Tuttle - I can't, and don't want to imagine my life without KRCL! Thank you so much for ALL you do!

Mike Hunter - Saturday Sage is like a life saver! Thank you

Aaron Ashcraft - Keep on Rocking in the Free World!

Sarah Coughtrie - I'm the cheapest person you'll ever meet, but I couldn't not donate to KRCL. Love your unique and diverse programming, love the interviews and the communities you support, and love the music! Keep doing what you're doing, the world needs you more than ever right now.

Samantha Nania - KRCL is always playing on my radio at home and in my car. I moved here just under 2 years ago, and felt at home once I found this station. I love how it connects me to the community and keeps me involved more than I could've ever been on my own. Love you all!

Mike Turic - I lived in Salt Lake City Utah for 30 years I’ve been a sustainer many times and sometimes I’ve had to stop and I live in Northwest Arkansas I love listening to you guys while I work thank you so much for 40 years.

Mark Pepper- At one point I heard that so many are listening but only few contribute. It seems like a small ask for the joy I get out of it.

Dan Carpenter - I have been in Utah for 22 years and the one constant that has never changed is the reliability of KRCL to deliver the best local and national music and sense of community that makes this place feel like home. Keep up the good work and I will be listening for as long as I am breathing our polluted air!

Rusty Miller - From a listener in South Carolina: A Brand New Day is the wallpaper of music for my mornings. I am _not_ a morning person. So listening to John Florence's avuncular welcome from two time zones away makes me feel like I've gotten up on time, ready to embrace the day -- and that it is possible that everything's gonna be okay. Thanks to him and the entire staff for making me feel that way, day after livelong day.

Brian Higgins - A few months ago I heard Kitty's Back by Bruce Springsteen on KRCL and had to extend my drive by seven minutes for an epic jam sesh. That experience alone is worth $100.

Kristin Urry – I have been listening for 40 years and during the pandemic it has really helped me.

Julie Edwards - Thank you, KRCL, for keeping great music and local voices on the air!

Shell Danis - Thank you Eugenie for supporting female voices. I vote Women Who Rock should always be an hour long! It is a treasure and I donate because I want to make sure and secure that this feature is around for a very long time. _ Anyone who was at the capitol when Lucius's voices filled it up, and got to feel that power should donate NOW! That was dismantling the patriarchy with music and needs to happen as much as possible!

Rebecca Conant - Thanks to the great John Florence for all the great music, music history and commentary. And everyone else at KRCL that help to keep this world sane and tolerable!

Jessica Reimer - Love the music, love Radioactive! Thanks for all you do for the community.

Hannah Owen - KRCL IS THE BOMB!!!!!!

Chelise Floyd - My drives would be so boring without KRCL. I love that I get such a variety of music in one day plus interesting conversations with Radioactive. Thank you all for sharing your love of great music and community with us.

Annina Mitchell - You are doing a great job during extremely difficult circumstances. Keep it up!

Marianne Burbidge - .20 cents a day is all it takes to be a sustainable contributor and is worth some daily music rejuvenation to my soul. Thank you.

Larry and Annie Ritchie - KRCL comes on has soon as get my first cup of coffee and generally stays on until dinner when I am home. Only preset button in my car. Love the station and the staff and miss the volunteering opportunities and the pick up party.

Nancy Goodell - Thank you for providing me 40 years of community radio!

Callie Chyvonne - I appreciate all that you guys do over there and I am grateful to get to be a listener. I learn so much about what's going on through Radio Active and discover so much wonderful music. Thank you! :)

Carol Stineman - Love KRCL! All sorts of music - and no commercials! :)

Anonymous - I decided to donate again this week, because I really appreciate how KRCL isn't afraid to stand up for social justice in a conservative state.

Renee Kuhn - I've been listening since I moved here in 1998 and haven't stopped. Thanks for all you do!

Mark Cantor - KRCL has shaped my life over the past 40 years! Thanks KRCL!!!

Drew Trunk - The only radio station worth listening to in Salt Lake! Love the new music, old relics, and thought stimulating programming.

Jeff Gellner - I love KRCL, all the programming.

Susan Sharp - Thanks for adapting to continue airing during the Covid shut down! You are indeed "essential workers"! Here's my donation as a thanks for not missing a beat!

Janean Parker - Thank you for providing a soundtrack to my days. It replaces the background noise I miss, working from home.

Karen Baker - Love Ebay's analogy of KRCL being like sharing music with a friend. In the early 80's my brother and I would mail each other home recorded cassette tapes of music we liked, back and forth at college.I was at University of Michigan and he was a year ahead at Michigan State. It was a little contest of who liked the coolest music. I always hear the coolest music on KRCL. So glad I discovered the station when I moved out here!!!

Candy Youngdoff - Lucky me-I get to listen to KRCL online from Sacramento CA! While I lived in SLC for five years, KRCL kept me sane-the level of community involvement, the coverage of progressive politics, the top o' the line DJs, and the AMAZING MUSIC!!! If you listen, you are a part of the community, and can spare a dime to keep KRCL doing it right.

Shell Danis - My humanity has leveled up in the last five years since I have started listening to KRCL - ESPECIALLY RADIOACTIVE. Lara, Billy, and the rest of the awesome co-hosts and volunteers. Thank you for doing the foot work to center and amplify the voices in our community who truly deserve it. Ya'll are truly making the world a more beautiful, equitable place. I wouldn't know my neighbors without you.

Sue Gerber - Hey KRCL fans, become members of the good trouble club!

Bryan Hoechner - Wants to give a shout out to laura and billy they are the highlight of his week. :)

Kerri Hopkins - I can't imagine navigating this crazy time without KRCL and RadioActive!

Doug Prowse - I am motivated and inspired by Laura Jones comments of why a Free Radio service exists. It is safe place for the unrestricted expression of ones freedom, liberty, community, culture, courage and colors. When listening to KRCL, I hear the tears, fears, despairs, hopes, laughter and happiness of peoples who are the soul of my country. My country does not have a single voice, it is a load sweet melodious mixture of many voices, not one, many, no one speaks for everyone. Thank you all for your valiant effort and commitment in allowing us to hear and feel the pains, pathos, poems, purposes, pleasures and pride of a people.

Paul Tucker - You guy's have been my life line since 1979. No one does it like you do. Miss seeing all the folks when I used to come down and pay my pledges off, But I know that we will get back to that soon. This state needs this station, now more than ever. All the Love, Paul Tucker.

Donna Bradshaw - I LOVE KRCL! I've been listening since I was a kid and it's always fresh and new! You got best DJs I have to say. Keep it up!

Chris Magerl - Thanks for all you do. You make Utah a far, far better place.

Derrek Wright - It is the best station in the west. Well done brother.

Brian Weiderman - I love the variety of music! Keep up the great work for another 40 years!

Kim Romang - I love everything about KRCL....

Stephen Bialkowski - I’ve listened to KRCL since they first went live (and subsequently had their equipment stolen). Now living in the Cache Valley, I installed an FM roof antenna for a while. The internet age has transformed everything... in a good way. This donation is in appreciation of KRCL’s persistance and commitment.

Mike Nielsen - I love all the different genre of music playing ON KRCL.

Jackie Vatsend - I love John Florence in the morning. It is a great part of my morning commute.

Charlie Christensen - Glad to support Radio Free Utah. Thank you so much and bless your hearts.

Michael Lauber - Keep up the great music! I Love A Brand New Day - it's the perfect way to spend my morning. I tell my friends all over the country that the best community radio station is KRCL!

Martha - I’m home retired and I wouldn’t know what to do without KRCL is my music life line.

Wayne McCallum - i listen 50 to 60 hours a week probably more. been listening since around 1986. the evening dj's do a great job with their diverse spin on music. the daytime crew does well also. thank you for your efforts.

Eric Reynolds - I've been listening since 1980...Fret and Fiddle, Dreadlock Holiday/Smile Jamaica, Mad Hatter's Tea Party, No Guarantee, Touch the Earth, Friday Attitude Adjustment Session, Behind the Zion Curtain, Aural Decay, both Sages, Living the Circle...I think I've listened to everyone and everything and my music collection shows it. I've moved away a couple of times and never found anything like it (DC area nor Santa Fe). Still have lots of promos; purple henley, fanny pack, shirts galore, the hand drum, mugs... KRCL is definitely the soundtrack of my adult life.

T Walden Morris - Ten Year Member listening in Missouri. Found KRCL in 2010 upon moving to SLC for contract work. KRCL and Utah changed my life. KRCL is kind of like living in the La France Apartments on West Broadway (always a LaFrancian) - once you are a KRCL listener you always a KRCL listerer no matter where you go. KRCL has been there since, in the last ten years (twice living in SLC) and in all the other places I've worked (Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma & Pennsylvania). KRCL is my music rock. Rock on!

Randy Hughes - KRCL is part of our life! Almost daily...Shout out to John in the morning, Eugenie and Ebay. Plus Amy on your Board of Directors.

Juanita Washington - I love John and appropriate John and the music he puts together each day! John works hard to provide community with rich and divers stories of knowledge that I find super interesting and insightful. It is these finer things in life that add to a richer more fuller life for us music lovers. Thank you John!

Kate Reymann - I was driving to the grocery store the other day and for some reason I could not get KRCL to load and it was awful. All other stations paled in comparison. Losing this station would be devastating. Thank you for keeping us all going during the pandemic. I don’t know what we would have done without John, Eugenie and everyone to keep us company.

Kevin Schneider - krcl is the best. In existence the entire 20 yrs i have been here and i am very grateful for all the music it has brought into my world.

Evan Richards - I've been listening to KRCL since its birth. But after buying a car with satellite radio, I forgot about KRCL, the station that introduced me to so many incredible artists, the station that has the local community in its heart, the station that gives a damn. A few days ago, my daughter texted me from Washington, DC. She was listening to KRCL using Sonos Radio. I tuned in and Dave Brubeck's Take Five was playing. Thanks to my daughter, I've let my satellite radio subscription expire and now I'm tuned back in to KRCL. I'm home.

Evan Sugden - As a native, recently returned to planet Zion from living abroad and in other states for many years, I have always appreciated the role KRCL has played in the cultural evolution of Utah. Whereas I used to stream it occasionally when living elsewhere, now KRCL is my everyday background to life. Community radio is one of the most powerful and vital tools we have in moving into the future. Thanks for keeping it alive.

Holly Romanelli - Its the only station to listen to and informative. It has all kinds of music to listen to.

Damian Dingley - A little booster for these tricky times. Keep on keeping on and doing all the great stuff you do!!!

Ma Black - I love all the women DJ's at KRCL. I am donating $100.00 to plant @TREE in honor of all the woman who rock that are not longer with us. All the women in music that have passed and were not giving the platform they deserved. Thank you KRCL and WOMEN WHO ROCK for giving all female and women a platform to express our music and for giving a voice to the voiceless. Thank you for making KRCL my home. LOVE MA.

Bruce and Sarah Maddocks - We would encourage anyone listening to contribute something, anything. Love your music, keep it up. Thank You.

Nancy Ballard - Public Radio is an incredibly important outlet for different varieties of news and music and all things important.

Michael Bunds - You all rock! Love KRCL, and my favorite show is Women Who Rock (so I was careful to donate just after noon). I cannot get enough of it. Long live Chrissie Hynde. We can't wait for our friend's band to play Message of Love at our wedding!

Justin Mool - KRCL always keeps me out of a music rut. Thanks for everything you do.

Christopher Glade - Thank you for helping me keep up on new music and local artists!

Danielle Stevens - I'm from Utah but have lived all over the world, and there is no radio station like KRCL anywhere else. I've learned about so many musical artists from this station and the eclectic vibe of all the programs is unmatched. Radioactive is an incredible resource for learning about what is happening in our community, and hearing perspectives that don't necessarily make it to the mainstream. If you love KRCL, it adds value to your life, and you haven't donated yet, what are you waiting for? KRCL is one of a kind. Keep it going.

Greg Kelly and Lisa Hilden - Love, love, love KRCL! Thanks for helping stay connected to our Salt Lake Community.

David Wood - Thanks for the vibes and all the songs filling our air. One of the best parts of my job is being able to stream KRCL in the background. Keep on keeping on down there by the Great Salt Lake.

Karin Boyer - KRCL is a great radio-station and so refreshing to listen to whenever I turn it on. A bit different from other radio-stations. I am so happy we have KRCL here in Utah!!

Joe and Bonnie Ungvarsky - Detroit Joe and Detroit Bonnie want to thank EBay for always boosting our spirits with the Friday Soul Party. Motown forever!!!

I heard Cannonballl Aderly band play Mercy, Mercy so I I had to call and make an extra donation. Thank you to Ebay - the program tonight was awesome.

Matt McNally - I LOVE KRCL EVEN MORE THAN CHEESEBURGERS! Not as much as coffee though. Thanks for all you do KRCL!

Brian Coburn - KRCL has continued to expand my musical mind with artists I have never encountered before and with deep cuts from artists I already love. Thank you for always being the multitude of creeks, rivers, and babbling brooks, in a world of main streams.

Rebecca Christman - My 11 year-old son is making this donation on my credit card--Rebecca
My son, zarnicov, says: "KRCL makes car rides much funner!" (BTW, zarnicov is his gaming name.)

Cecelia Firpo - It is one of the last true radio shows. It plays all day with different DJ it does not use a randomized tracked list all day everyday. It is nice to listen to music that are not currently popular in society. I would have never learned about amazing bands if not for this radio. This radio took me out of my music comfort zone and should me music I would have never listened to otherwise.

Olivia Juarez - I donate to KRCL in the name of good music, like the Black Angels and every other band I know and love thanks to the DJs on KRCL every night. If your own music library has grown thanks to KRCL, then $end it!! $$$$$

Kathryn Sampson - Thank you all so much for what you have always done and continue to do for our community. You bring comfort and hope by bringing us all together at a time where we are actively being torn apart. This is extremely important work you are doing and I am grateful that I am one of the few able to give a little extra to help keep things moving. Thank you for the smiles, the car singing, and making me feel like I am a part of something big and wonderful.

Marijean Woolf - I love Breakfast Jam and Shannalee! Thanks to KRCL for keeping the music going!!!

Elizabeth McKnight - I think KRCL provides a delightful normalcy during these challenging times

Rich Taxwood - Thanks for being there

Brad Crabtree - There is nothing like carefully crafted or even randomly thrown together sets of music by fellow brothers and sisters. May the human element of people creating and sharing music together always be important to nourishing your soul.

Thank you doesn't express how much I appreciate the time and dedication it takes to run a truly exceptional radio station. Much love to you all!

Mackenzie Roberts - KRCL is a breath of fresh air when it comes to radio.  I try to live by the saying "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" and the same goes for KRCL.  "When listening to KRCL, be as you are a local to the music you listen to."  OR something like that.  I try to keep an open mind and heart, and I feel that 90.9 is able to be the soundtrack to life as it is meant to be lived.  With expanded horizons.

Max Andrew - Thurs night psychout is the best , I've tried to tune in every week since i discovered it. No doubt the right vibes to get by in this summer heat. Thanks for the good times.
