MORRO BAY — The 97.3 FM (Morro Bay) and 107.9 FM (Paso Robles) low power FM station “The Rock,” celebrated six years on-the-air, April 6, with a groovy fundraising event at the Morro Bay Veterans Hall.
Station founder Hal Abrams and many of the extensive roster of 53 local DJ’s donned attire reminiscent of the 1960’s British Invasion a for the concert, which was free to attend but gathered momentum to keep the station going through a silent auction, live auction, and concessions.
Abrams reported that more than $18,000 of a target $21,000 station fund has been met with totals from the silent auctions being tallied in the week after the event.
A collection of Beatles memorabilia went for a steal, between a series of 50/50 raffle and sets from the groups Unfinished Business, The Vinylistics and Slogrrrl.
With program and schedule information online, a recent popular addition to the station has been a smartphone app for easy listening outside of the station’s limited broadcast range.
An intangible gift from a music lover with computer skills, the app information is online at www.esterobayradio.org
