SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Sacramento's beloved K-ZAP, the all-volunteer LPFM rock/blues radio station broadcasting 24/7 at 93.3 FM in the metro Sacramento area, on the K-ZAP apps and streaming at, launched its "10 To Feed the Kitty" donation drive on June 9.

The station is calling on its listeners to donate just $10 each to help keep the lights on and the tunes rolling.

Founded by former staff members of the legendary Sacramento radio station KZAP, Dennis Newhall and Tom Cale, K-ZAP has been a staple in the Sacramento community since its return to the airwaves on July 4, 2015. Now, as the station approaches its ninth anniversary, it is looking to the community for support to continue its mission of providing quality rock/blues music to Sacramento and the world.

"We've been rocking Sacramento for nine years now and we want to keep the party going," said Newhall, station general manager and owner. "With the '10 To Feed the Kitty' campaign, we're asking our listeners to help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 by July 4. It's a small amount that can make a big difference."

The "10 To Feed the Kitty" donation drive will run from now until July 4. Listeners can donate online at using their credit, debit card or Venmo. In addition to the online campaign, K-ZAP will promote the drive at various events in the community, including the Carmichael Concerts in The Park on June 15 and the Red White & Blue Celebration at La Sierra Community Center on June 29.

"We're not asking for a lot, just $10 from each of our listeners," said Peter Rizzo, promotions director and underwriter. "We know that a little can go a long way and we're hoping that with the support of our community, we can continue to provide the best rock/blues music to Sacramento and the world."
