Sack KBCS Management on Facebook
One of our past listeners has a Facebook page calling for a boycott until all existing management have resigned.


On 24 August 2009, KBCS' management drastically changed its weekday programming. After these unilateral changes were announced to station volunteers, a small group of listeners and prior staff created Save KBCS! to reverse, or at the very least, severely limit these changes.

SaveKBCS! supporting past listeners are as diverse in their backgrounds, as the diversity of the programming they once enjoyed. They include, but are not limited to KBCS volunteer programmers; college, high school and elementary school students; teachers; professors; graphic designers; law enforcement officers; accountants; restaurateurs; attorneys; architects; marketers; salespeople; manufacturers; retirees; radiologists; military personnel; chefs; musicians; firefighters; librarians; stock brokers; dentists; doctors; nurses; bookkeepers; small business owners; therapists; secretaries; biotech, software, electrical, mechanical, avionic, aeronautical and aerospace engineers; state & federal employees; IT technicians; apparel designers; CEOs; food servers; -the list goes on and on.

KBCS' possessed one of the few true community formats left in the U.S., that no matter what your cultural background, level of education or career choice -depicted a true reflection to the diversity of its listeners.

It is with open invitation that we encourage you to join our cause in gaining back what was stolen from the KBCS listening community!
