CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD PRESENTED TO KSWD-FM
VEGAS -- KSWD-FM Los Angeles today was awarded the National Association
of Broadcasters Crystal Radio Award. Since 1987, the NAB Crystal Radio
Awards have recognized radio stations for their outstanding year-round
commitment to community service.

provided this description of its accomplishments in 2009:
The Sound's mission is to be "All About the Music," specifically
to offer music in the service of our community. When two firefighters
were killed battling wildfires, The Sound supported their families through
a music request on-air fundraiser. During 2009, The Sound launched its
own charitable arm called Project M.U.S.I.C. (Music for Underfunded Schools
in California). On-air appeals and station events raise money for music
education via the GRAMMY Museum Education Program and Arts Advantage Program
of Orange County Department of Education. To assist the Los Angeles Parks
department, The Sound coordinated bands to perform free weekly concerts
at Pershing Square. The Sound has helped organizations like the American
Heart Association, Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity, and numerous others
to raise awareness to their causes. The Sound gives all employees in all
departments 40 paid hours for volunteerism per year and matches up to
$600 in personal donations. The staff spent a weekday cleaning litter
from an area beach - without publicity - because it was the right thing
to do. In just two years of existence, 100.3 The Sound has established
that community service is our business. We are proud to be making a difference
in Southern California.
