KZYX will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mendocino Community Radio with a Birthday Bash & Variety Show at the Boonville Fairgrounds, Saturday, October 11, 2 to 7 p.m. The show's MC is KZYX programmer W. Dan of "The Treehouse." There will be live music and dancers, a brewpub and wine bar, great food and a celebration of some of the people who helped put the station on the air and keep it on the air for two and a half decades. "Bring your family, bring your friends and prepare to have fun," said event coordinator Meg Courtney of the KZYX board of directors. "Come and put names to faces of people and programmers who have been important to our station for these 25 years." Music will include: Hui Arago's Hawaiian music and dancers; acoustic folk trio Just Enough; world music programmer and host of One Ocean since the first week KZYX aired, Lilia Lobo de Albuquerque with a Brazilian music and dance group; Aline Galfim, with Latin music and dancers; Ragtime Rick and Friends; pianists Bill Taylor & Jaye Allison Moscariello; Saturnin Ba, dancer/percussionist from the Ivory Coast performing traditional African dances with his students and plus other special guests and stories from KZYX's beloved programmer Jimmy Humble. Delish of Willits will offer a choice of high quality sausages, hot dogs or tofu dogs, a choice of two salads, and baked beans and KZYZ birthday cake. Five different beers homebrewed by KZYX programmers will be on tap, as well as local wines and hard cider. Soft drinks, non-alcoholic wine and herbal iced tea will also be available. A 50/50 Raffle will take place which means the winner receives half the money the raffle takes in; the rest goes to support KZYX. Bring your lawn chairs. Admission is $5. Kids are free. (Sorry, no dogs). KZYX is non-profit community radio for all of Mendocino County. — Paul Lambert
