KTYD is supporting Doctors Without Walls in a 22 hour radioathon. This effort to support humanitarian medicine will be led by Lin Aubuchon, Bill Pesso, Dennis Mitchell and the other members of the KTYD group with a live broadcast from the studio from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Thursday, November 16. Rock the Docs will continue on Friday, November 17 from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. from the patio of the Benchmark Eatery (1201 State St.), shortly followed by an after party featuring local musical talent. The radioathon will feature celebrity musicians and interviews with first responders and volunteer doctors that take to the streets for Doctors Without Walls.
Listeners can participate by donating to play a song for someone dear to them. Listeners who stop by Benchmark Eatery on Friday, November 17 will have the proceeds from their bills from brunch and lunch donated to the cause.
