What is Fund Drive?

Since it was first launched in the 1960s, KCSB-FM has been your source for free-form independent programming and community events. UCSB students and other community members are provided an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of radio broadcasting. We have also hosted a multitude of events for Santa Barbara and other listening communities, ranging from music events like Oshun, Eyedress and a techno show featuring student art at the Red Barn.

During the 10 days of KCSB’s Fund Drive, our astronauts will be DJing special programs to celebrate you, our listeners, and KCSB’s rich history. KCSB receives no state funding, so the generosity of students and the greater community is essential to keeping the station in orbit.
