KDUR, Durangos volunteer-driven community radio station, is powering up this season and going digital. With a newly installed transmitter on the edge of the Fort Lewis Rim, the station will ramp up its signal power to a blazing 6000 watts, reaching more listeners and eliminating nearby dead zones. And with community support in full force during this weeks Spring Membership Drive, Durango is not missing a beat.

Sound board, headphones and mic await the next DJ. KDUR volunteer DJ Margy Dudley, left, and Program Director Sarah
Baumgartner share a few words over the air during the Spring
Membership Drive on Tuesday. Music from bands appearing at the 16th Annual Durango Bluegrass
Meltdown this weekend sits at the ready in the play queue. The KDUR disc library is enough to make any music lover
swoon.
