The Station
A Fresh Approach to Classical Music. A Fresh
Approach for Bay Area Advertisers.
Casual, not stuffy. Comfortable, never stodgy.
KDFC is classical radio at its most
accessible. KDFCs DJs are radio people, not
music teachers. They present the music in a
context and perspective that brings it to life
for Bay Area listeners. KDFC is a contemporary
voice that connects classical music to the modern
world. KDFCs powerful voice extends to its
advertisers, granting them unrivaled access to an
exclusive, affluent, educated, engaged
audience. KDFCs creative approach extends
beyond a well-crafted playlist. From the musical
KDFC World Tour to the Oscar week KDFC at the
Movies, the station presents the classics in a
casual, comfortable environment. Advertisers
benefit from this association with San Francisco
culture and the arts. Reach San Franciscos
elusive, devoted classical music listener. Only
on 102.1 Classical KDFC.

some of the 1100 emails sent to Hoyt from his
fans while he was out Wishing you all the best
and a speedy recovery! My vanpool misses you
already. Bill You brighten our morning every
off-to-school and work day. Youre even more
important to us than, yikes, coffee! Get better
and come back to the radio soon! Our days wont
be nearly so sunny until you return. Heather,
Judson and Charlotte Starting the day without
your witty and informative patter just isnt the
same. Get well soon. Larry and Billee I
listen to you every morning on my ride to work
and then online at my office. Mornings wont be
the same without you. My very best wishes for a
speedy recovery. Virginia Im up every
morning at 530. KDFC is my alarm clock. I miss
your funny stories and humor while I bounce
around my apartment waiting for the caffeine to
kick in. Get well. Joel I wish you all the
best as you recover. You are a bright spot in my
day and I selfishly look forward to your return.
My son at UCSC sends his regards from Slugville.
Lisa I was so sorry to hear you were out for
surgery, but Im grateful that you will be
rebooted and back with us soon! I so enjoy
your weekday morning show with Dusty and Betsy.
You all make me smile and laugh every morning as
I get ready for work. Best wishes for a full
recovery. I will miss you. Kathy Get well
soon! By far you are the best radio host in the
business. Classy, articulate, and above all,
funny. Easy to listen to. Smart to have
around. Jeff

The HaloEffect
We also favor the companies who advertise with
you over all others for their support of a
classical station and its listeners. Jade
Simonson When my wife and I went furniture
shopping last weekend, because of their ads on
KDFC, one of the first places we went was
Flegels. Were a much better target for some
kinds of ads (banks, investments, business
services, luxury cars, and high-end consumer
goods sellers such as Shreve and Company), and
they ought to be able to charge a premium for
that. Bob Murphy Keep the classical format!!
We just heard that the station has been
sold--please know that I and all my friends
depend on this classical formatwe also patronize
the merchants and services advertised on it as we
consider it a trusted source. Dont change a
good thing!! Susan Brown
Even my wife, who originally at best tolerated
classical music, has come to enjoy many of KDFCs
offerings, such as the Island of Sanity (and to
be a happy subscriber to the San Francisco
Symphony because of what she has heard on it).
Phil Carolyn Banda Like many classical music
listeners our family has plenty of disposable
income. Please keep KDFC as a classical station.
I think most of the upscale advertisers get it,
and hopefully it can remain profitable as a
classical station. Sally Maxwell
