Mark your calendars, Saturday, October 27, 2018 KOCF will host the kick off Halloween party to begin an entire year of celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Oregon Country Fair. The event will be a combined fundraiser for both KOCF and the 50th anniversary celebration. The party will have live music, costumes will be encouraged by all and several raffles with amazing prizes.
I want to talk about creating intentional communities. We are in a time when we need to build our communities stronger more than ever before. With the chaos in Washington it’s pretty clear that if we are faced with a huge local crisis it could be months before we see substantial help from outside. How can a radio station help create an intentional community? By aligning folks with similar ideas, ideals, hopes and communicating their gatherings. By giving them a place to express these thoughts. By informing the community what is happening and being a conduit for this communication process. By becoming a focal point of communications during emergencies. KOCF wants to help keep this intentional community connected 24×7. Listen to KOCF-92.5 FM.
One of our communities is the Oregon Country Fair. It has members that live all over the states and the globe. I’m hoping to develop pockets of KOCF listeners where ever the Fair Family gathers. Do you live in a community where many Fair Family live? Portland, Seattle, the Bay Area, Berlin? Perhaps there is a local coffee shop, café, brewery, or hofbräu that gets frequented by OCF Fair Family? Let us know (KOCF.ORG)! We want to get in touch with the proprietors and see if we can get them to play KOCF in their business. We’d like to reach your community with the sound of the Fair all year long. How many times have you been driving out Aero Road Monday afternoon and someone from the Traffic crew says “keep the Fair in your heart all year long”? KOCF really wants to help keep this intentional community connected all year long. Listen to KOCF.org
The world is in a state of unrest, the US is in a constant state of misinformation and distrust. We are all feeling it. Now is a time when we need our intentional community more than ever, “come on people now smile on your brother everybody get together we’ve got to love one another right now”. (Youngbloods, 1967). The buzz in the air is a lot like it was during the Viet Nam war. We can be agents of change and now is the time. Let’s all bring it together, gather in your community, listen to the station and when we are doing live programs reach out to us make a request, say hi to family in other communities and we can unite the Family around the world. Some people say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one… (John Lennon 1971) Keep our intentional communities connected. Listen to KOCF-92.5 FM and KOCF.ORG.
That’s it for now.
