Santa Barbara radio station 99.9 KTYD holds radio-a-thon supporting music programs in schools

The hosts of Morning Mojo on 99.9 KTYD are holding a radio-a-thon to help keep music in local schools.

Lin Aubuchon and Bill Pesso are going live on the radio for 13 hours a day for two days to raise money and collect instruments for the Santa Barbara Education Foundation’s Keep The Beat program. The foundation is a non-profit established in 1985 to raise money to support public education in our community.

On the first day of the radio-a-thon, Aubuchon and Pesso called on their famous friends and Santa Barbara-based musicians to help spread the message.

Glen Phillips of Toad The Wet Sprocket performed his hit Walk on the Ocean live in studio.

Dishwalla also stopped by the KTYD studio to perform and lend its support. Jack Johnson called into the studio to chat about the importance of music in schools.

The radio-a-thon continues on Friday at The Creekside Restaurant and Bar in Santa Barbara.

Aubuchon and Pesso will be there live on the air from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

You can drop off an instrument or make a donation at the location.
