Alyssa Talks Tacos!
Here's how it works: Taco entries will be randomly matched in a bracket with other tacos in their genre (meat or veggie). Each pairing will be given a date in March on which to bring 6 tacos to KMUD in Redway. Tacos will be judged by staff and programmers on site. If your taco wins the match up, you will be given another date. This will continue until the Final Four Fiesta on April 3rd. If your taco makes it to the final four, you will be invited to our live event (45-60 tacos will be needed for this event.)

Here's How the Promotion will benefit YOU: All taco entries will be announced on air. Each time your taco wins a round, you will be announced again. The final four competitors will be added to our advertising for the Fiesta. The top winners in the meat and veggie categories will receive THE GOLDEN TACO Trophy and a laminated sign to be posted in your business or living room proclaiming you the winner of KMUD's first annual Golden Taco Awards.

For more information, call Alyssa at 923-2513 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Entries are due by February 21st. Please include your name and the type of taco that you will be making.

We are so excited for this fun community event!!!!
~Alyssa de Leon
When I moved to the Southern Humboldt community I had been living outside of the societal norms since I was 18. I travelled all over this country seeking a community that I was comfortable in. I arrived in Humboldt county and have been here ever since. Although I never meant to move here, there is certainly something special about this community. 
A short time later, it is the most “homey” place I have ever known. I witness daily expressions of our communities shared values and strength at KMUD, Redwoods Rural health center, the Mateel Community Center, Sanctuary Forest, Trees Foundation, and more. 
Let’s not forget where we came from. Without our rural values and community spirit, we would not be here. Rather than look outside ourselves, we can stick together to keep this magical and wild community alive.
KMUD has been here for this community since its formation in 1987. We’re still here because of the support of you, our members. KMUD family! 
Show your love for KMUD by returning the silent drive form. If you return the form by September 3rd you will be entered to win a 500$ Gift Certificate to Western Star Tree Company! More sweet local prizes to be announced.
Now is the time for us to remember our core values and strengthen our community ties. Individually and as a community we are all here for a purpose. 
For the MUD,

Interim KMUD Membership Director

Due to rain in the forecast the Block Party has been moved to the Mateel Community Center. It's still free to attend!

So, once again KMUD Community Radio is hosting our annual all-day musical event, May 18, from noon until the cows come home which is about nine pm. Of course there will be food — by Babette and Friends, cd and record sales, t-shirts and hats for sale, plenty of vendors with their beautiful wares, beer, wine and drink boothbake sale staffed by YOUth in RADio, plenty of tentage to keep out of the sun, and, most of all—music all day—nine different performers and bands, including Buddy Reed and the Rip It Ups, April Moore and Ranch Party, Object Heavy, and Kai Clark, whose father played with the Byrds!  The full list is on the poster, in reverse order.  more

This is one of our best community events. It's small enough to be intimate but big enough that lots of your friends will be there and that is what this event is about. It's about re-establishing our bonds of friendship after a long, rainy winter. It's also about supporting the last bastion of free speech up here on the North Coast, KMUD Community Radio. Our radio station is quintessential in these times of fake news and propaganda. There is no other radio station like KMUD. Please come and be with your friends and support our radio station while having the best of times.  We’ll close the road and dance in the street (or at least the parking lot). Donations will be happily accepted. 

The Brass Rail in Redway is hosting an afterparty featuring Intergalactic Trash

Redwood Community Radio extends its gratitude to sponsors Dazey’s Supply, Pierson Building Center, Blue Star Gas, Flow-Kana, and the New Harris General Store.

Climate Awareness Logo

“No matter what people tell you. Words and ideas can change the world.”   -Robin Williams. 


The time for change is now. We are facing a turning point in our society where we can no longer afford to sit idly by. This is why in 2018, KMUD is committing itself to climate awareness and disaster preparedness.

Our Spring on-air pledge drive starts on Tuesday, March 20 and will feature special programming to highlight climate awareness. As we have seen with the recent disastrous fires, radio is one of the most resilient means of communication. Natural disasters and erratic weather are increasingly common, making it is more important than ever to keep our radio station alive. It is more important than ever that we continue to educate, generate awareness, share ideas, and rise up as a community. Together we are working to create a better, more just and sustainable world.

We cannot do it alone. We recognize that a lot of people are struggling this year but we are stronger when we stay united and support each other. A great way to give is by joining our monthly giving program. You can give just a small amount each month that’s affordable for you, and then we can better plan and budget knowing we have a certain amount coming in that we can rely on. But in any form we appreciate every dollar donated to us from the bottom of our hearts. 

Please send your contribution now for a chance to win one of our great gifts. Find the details below. The drawings will be held on the first day of the Pledge Drive, Tuesday March 20. The more we raise in advance, the less we will need to raise on-air!
