COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FAIR AND VOLUNTEERING
On January 29th, KBBF was 1 of 103 activist and service organizations participating at the North Bay Community Engagement Fair at the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds. Of the 1000’s of people in attendance, many eagerly signed up to volunteer at the station. All have since come in to identify skills they have or are willing to develop, from writing, computer, artistic and technical skills related to radio broadcasting to organizing events. Two families are participating in a work party this weekend. If you would like the excitement and satisfaction of volunteering at KBBF, call us at 545-8833.

As promised, KBBF is now streaming. Historically, its signal reached 18 Northern California counties but as of December can be heard worldwide. We are now redesigning the website to include extensive information and be more user-friendly. Our present website is kbbf-fm.org. To support the station, you can still donate online using either PayPal or a credit card.
