Junk in the trunk takes on new meaning at KBBF’s annual Trunk or Treat fiesta. You’ll get your fill of Halloween candy as well as eye candy when the station’s parking lot is taken over by classic tricked-out lowriders, rat rods, and viclas carrying sweet treats. Children of all ages can go from car to car for Halloween goodies starting at 3pm. Costumes are optional.
Last year’s stars of the show included a gorgeous '63 Chevy Impala and a rare early ‘50s Mercury Straight 8. All vehicles get decorated for the season, with spooky interiors and haunted trunk dioramas of ghosts, ghouls, zombies, Calaveras, y mucho más monsters. Some drivers get into the spirit by hooking up their rides with light shows and playing creepy music. The most original designs are awarded trophies.
Roll on by the station on October 20th, from 3pm-7pm. Avoid coming earlier because it will interrupt the preparation.
Food for sale, music, and performances are also on the bill. It all goes down at 1700 Corby Avenue, Santa Rosa.
KBBF and KRCB invite the public to a free gathering on October 2nd that commemorates last October’s fires. If you were affected by the fires or would like to tell your story during the event, call the organizers at 545-8833. You can opt for us to record your voice or to speak directly to the audience. The proceedings kick off at 6pm with food and live music. Then, starting at 7pm, KBBF will broadcast personal stories from audience members as well as volunteers from KBBF. There will also be a viewing of a special television report by KRCB. Come to the station, at 1700 Corby Avenue, to participate.
On August 18th, KBBF was the site of the Lowrider Council of Sonoma County’s fundraising show. Several hundred folks showed up to check out over 40 classic cars. Here’s a shout out to all the volunteers who made it possible. This includes Mr. Chuch, who did live broadcasting of the event for KBBF. You can hear his program, “La Voz Chicana,” on KBBF every Saturday from 11am-1pm.
Juan Roman, a Lowrider Council promoter, the DJ of the “Late Night Oldies Show” (on KBBF Sundays from 10pm to midnight), and the pilot of a ’52 Chevy Business Coupe had this to say about the goings-on: “This was the music that came to us through generations. We listen to this music because it’s like the soundtracks of our lives, from when you fall in love, when you have your heart broken, to the daily struggles in life and society.”
Congratulations go out to Michaele Morales and Alfredo Sanchez. They were awarded the first-ever Barrio Warrior Award, bestowed by the Council, in honor of their years of community service.
