BENEFITS to the arts

More than the one-minute ads KDB plays for its sponsors, we are a 24-hour-a-day commercial for the arts in Santa Barbara and Ventura County. According to the Santa Barbara Music Patron Survey, KDB is among the top stations listened to by concert goers. The demographics of KDB's audience and those of concert goers are extremely similar. Naturally, KDB is a principal source of information on upcoming performances for ticket buyers.

BENEFITS to the local economy

The arts not only add to this area's quality of life, but they also help stimulate a vibrant economy. The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission estimates that the arts generate 75 to 100 million dollars in revenue annually for local business.
