Live Music Fans,
Over the years, we have been happy to share our historic space to help local non-profit organizations raise some much needed revenue and support. That’s why it was easy to get behind this fundraiser with the Andy Zanca program tomorrow night. They have provided a great opportunity to local kids by letting them be DJ’s while learning all kinds of new skills and confidence interacting with the “adult” world. KDNK has been a great partner since the programs inception years ago. Here’s your chance to come out and hear some great live music provided by our loving and giving “house band”, Let Them Roar. All while learning more about the special local program and meeting some young DJ’s.
And, be sure to tune into KDNK at 7pm for some great Let Them Roar live music if you can’t make it out.
See you at the show!
“AZYEP and LET THEM ROAR will collaborate during a live concert at Steve’s Guitars tomorrow, Thursday, November 14th at 6:30. Come support youth DJs while they emcee the concert and interview the band throughout the night. Tickets benefit youth radio and they will be available by donation at the door. A portion of the proceeds will support the LTR ‘I See My Light’ project which you will learn more about during the concert.”
If you can ‘t make it to Steve’s, the concert will broadcast on KDNK Community Radio (88.1, 88.3, kdnk.org). Learn how AZYEP is working to empower youth in our community.”
ANDY ZANCA YOUTH EMPOWERMENT Serving Youth Since 2000
Annemarie Zanca created the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program (AZYEP) in 2000 in honor of her brother Andy, KDNK Community Access Radio’s first youth DJ. Andy died by suicide in 1998.
Annemarie, a child and family therapist, recognized that Andy’s radio experience was a highlight of his life, providing community connection and a tool to combat isolation. She founded AZYEP to provide similar opportunities to youth throughout the Roaring Fork Valley giving all students access to community broadcasting.
In our nineteen-year history, AZYEP has served more than 3,000 youth and now broadcasts six hours of live talk and music programs every week during prime time on KDNK. In addition, AZYEP partners with schools from Aspen to Parachute to showcase student work. We engage youth in news production and provide mentoring opportunities.
