Happy Birthday. 25 Years of KSER!

After years of planning, the first sounds from KSER hit the airwaves on Saturday, February 9, 1991. So KSER is now celebrating our birthday, serving the North Puget Sound for 25 years with local news and public affairs, great music programs, free public service announcements for local non-profits and much more.

 The above photo was taken by Jim Leo and published in the Herald while original studios in Lynnwood were under construction. Nancy Keith was the first station manager of KSER.

A lot has changed at KSER over 25 years; for one thing, our studios are now in downtown Everett. We now broadcast on a second station, KXIR at 89.9.  We now have Amy Goodman on the air along with Thom Hartmann and Rick Steves.

But some things haven't changed. We're still powered by more than 100 dedicated volunteers who keep the stations on the air. We're still commercial free. We're still independent and community owned.

Norma Bruns, in the photo above, was one of our first volunteers.  25 years later she's still involved with KSER.

And we still rely on the generous support of listeners like you to keep all of our great programs on the air.

To help celebrate a quarter century of independent broadcasting, we'd like to invite you to one of several special KSER Birthday Parties.

The next two parties are Monday, February 29th, 5:45 to 7 p.m. and Tuesday, March 22nd 5:45 to 7 p.m.   You can meet some of your favorite KSER DJs and see the station, have a cupcake and help us celebrate our 25th year.  Simply send an email to RSVP@KSER.org to let us know you'd like to attend or call 425-303-9070 and we'll give you all the details.

Thanks for listening and supporting 25-year-old KSER!.
