CSA farm and CSR station join forces for KWTF Farm Fest

"KWTF" is sure fun to say in polite company, but there's nothing WTF-esque about the Sonoma County community radio station. Serious about getting on the terrestrial airwaves, the station holds a fundraiser this weekend at Sebastopol's Laguna Farm.

KWTF currently broadcasts online at KWTF.net and on an 11-watt station, KXCF 91.5, in Marshall. But the station needs $80,000 for a 420-watt tower to begin broadcasting on 88.1 FM from Bodega Bay. And so far, so good; in the four years since KWTF was conceived, "there were a lot of opportunities for this thing to shrivel up and die," station manager Ben Saari says, "and it's made it through a lot of tests."

Saari says Laguna Farm, which has a community supported agriculture weekly farm box subscription program, is a perfect match with KWTF: "What we're trying to do with radio is sort of analogous to what they're trying to do with food."

Performers include Odd Bird, Hot Club Beelzebub, Those Unknown, Girls in Suede, Semi-Evolved Simians and others on Saturday, Aug. 11, at Laguna Farm. 1764 Cooper Road, Sebastopol. 2–10pm. $12–$17. www.kwtf.net.—Nicolas Grizzle
