Can and Bottle Drive for KPOV

If you're like Jack and have embarrassingly large container full of empty wine and beer bottles to get rid of because people are starting to look at you with concern, KPOV's annual can and bottle drive this weekend is just what you've been looking for.

KPOV-LP FM (106.7) is Bend's own community radio station. It's not yet another stupid commercial station with shouty ads, it's not yet another public radio station with cultured shows like All Things Considered. Community radio is down to earth, volunteer powered, and pimps for no one.

They are hosting their annual can and bottle drive this weekend. Cans and bottles can be donated between 8 a. m. and 5 p. m. at Ray’s Food Place on Century Drive, in Bend. This Saturday and Sunday only.

Or swing by the studio at 501 N.W. Bond St., in Bend and drop them off there. Meet the friendly folk who keep this little stations going.

And while you're at it, sign up for their short broadcasting course so can go on the air yourself with your own show.

Just picture yourself telling your friends and family that you are a radio host. Cool? Of course, there's nothing cooler.

A new career, and a chance to start re-filling your recycling bins with new empties. It's a win-win, my friend.
