KALW 70th Anniversary Concert 

Sat., Sept. 3 2011
In 1941, 91.7 KALW went on the air as the first FM radio station west of the Mississippi.

Next Saturday, August 27th at 8pm, this pioneering public radio station will celebrate 70 years of broadcasting with a great night of music, community and live radio at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley.

On stage, you'll hear from The Flatt & Scruggs Tribute Band, George Brooks & Kai Eckhardt's Tangential Experience, and Wake the Dead -- the world's first all-star Celtic Grateful Dead jam band.

JoAnn Mar, Dore Stein and Peter Thompson will host the evening, and they'll be on hand with Kevin Vance, Joe Burke and other KALW folks to meet you and share their love for the music, as well as their appreciation for this community's incredible support for KALW.

Join the party! Support KALW and be part of this historic celebration
General seating tickets are $25, available from The Freight & Salvage on-line box office.
