Support KMBH Public RaidoMario Munoz of Public Radio Station KMBH needs help from The Valley Byliners. The station will be having its pledge drive from Feb. 3 to Feb. 14, 2014, from 7 AM to 11 AM and from 2 PM to 5 PM. Mario says he needs on-air hosts and testimonials about "why we like public radio."
If you can make it one or more of these mornings or afternoons, (especially in the morning) please email Mario Munoz. You may also contact the station by phone at (956)421-4111.
As well as being good exposure for the Valley Byliners, your participation will be good for the community.
