KAOS 89.3 FM Olympia Community Radio hosts a Reggae benefit at 7pm, Saturday August 28 at downtown Olympia’s Royal Lounge, 311 Capitol Way. The show will feature international Reggae artists Sahra Indio, Tuff Lion and Ruff Scott, with the Escort Service Band. Doors open at 6:30. Tickets are $15 at the door or at brownpapertickets.com. Celebrating 37 years of community service, KAOS is the South Sound’s only full-time, full-power commercial-free public radio service, offering a wide range of independent music, local and global news, and community information since 1973. The station streams its broadcasting live on the World Wide Web, at www.kaosradio.org, and can be heard on Comcast cable in Thurston County on TCTV Public Access channel 22 as well as Comcast Digital Cable channel 982.
One of Thurston County’s largest volunteer-based organizations, KAOS is programmed by a staff of nearly 100 student and community volunteers. Their varied perspectives and sensibilities make KAOS a unique resource for information and entertainment ignored by major media.
