As a not-for-profit society, Cortes Community Radio relies on volunteers for programming with one staff member, Sean Coyote, who is the operations/technical director. For extreme entertainment, come to the bi-annual lip-sync fundraisers MC’d by Rick Bockner. Other fundraising that keeps them on air includes the annual drive-in movie behind Manson’s Hall, DJ dances, raffles, grants and show sponsorships. You can donate on-line via paypal too!
