It’s a British Invasion for The Rock

MORRO BAY Things are jolly well at 97.3 FM and 107.9 FM on the radio dial as they celebrate their sixth year on the air with their annual fundraising extravaganza on Sunday, April 6 at the Morro Bay Veterans Hall at 5:30 p.m. with a “British Invasion.”

The show features the group Unfinished Business, The Vinylistics and Slogrrrl and there is a silent auction to bid on and a 50/50 raffle as well as four different food concessions to choose from and freshly tapped beer and wine flowing.

With fond memories of the 1960s era and the Beatles and the Animals among others, the evening highlights the contribution the Brits have made to our musical heritage and continue to do so. Plus, you get to meet all the DJs and air talent.

The Rock is the Central Coast’s only fully volunteer-operated and listener supported community radio station and serves communities on the coast in Morro Bay, Los Osos, and Cayucos and in North County, Atascadero and Paso Robles. It also reaches far and wide across the country online at www.centralcoastradio,org. Statistics show that there are many listeners utilizing the online connection.

Programming is diverse with musical genres from pop, rock and roll, jazz to old-timey folk and interspersed with eclectic conversation programs covering topics from peace and nonviolence, food, dog care, health, astronomy, local and far-reaching politics and more.

What began in a tiny closet in Founder and President Hal Abrams’ home has blossomed into a first-class radio station. But it takes money to run a radio station despite the volunteer talent. This year the station needs to raise $21,000 and you can help by either donating online or come on out to the free fundraising concert and have some fun.

“It’s truly amazing to see the community come together to donate their services, time and money to make this concert and the station a phenomenal success,” commented Hal Abrams.

The concert is free. Just bring along your valid ID and invite your friends. A great way to end a day of shopping at the City Yard Sale.

The Rock likes to thank their sponsors, Megan’s Organic Market, Morro Bay Drug and Gift, Firestone Walker Brewing Company, Mar Vista Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, Anarchy Wine Company, Bill Gaines Audio and Calsun Electric and Solar Systems.
