Downtown Radio is having a shoe-drive! We’re asking our listeners and supporters for new or gently-worn shoes that will be shipped to developing nations via Funds2Orgs. From Wednesday, September 11th to Wednesday, November 6th, you can drop your shoes off at The Book Stop on 4th Ave. The Book Stop is located at 214 N. 4th Ave. and is closed on Tuesday. You can check their website bookstoptucson.com for specific hours of operation to know when to drop off your shoes.

The Power of Radio!

Own a business? Why not run underwriting announcements on Downtown Radio? You can put the word out about your business and support local, independent radio at the same time. Running underwriting announcements on Downtown Radio is an inexpensive, effective way to reach the people who are most likely to patronize your business: those who live, work, and hang out in the greater downtown area.

Social media ads are just not that effective. A recent Nielsen poll concluded that nearly 20% more consumers trust traditional radio advertising over social media ads.

Additionally, people still listen to radio far more than you might think. Studies show that 92% of adults 18 and over listen to the radio on a weekly basis.
