1. LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED STATION
Big Tree Communications owns and operates its own radio station. You want to speak to the owners?
We’re right here programming what you hear and responding to community needs. We're not absentee owners.
We aren’t programmed by satellite or an out of state music service. We aren’t renting the station from somebody else.
Hard to believe? Each and every other radio station in our market is owned by a company in Arizona.
Call any other broadcaster in the area and ask to speak to the owners.
At our station, the buck stops here at the LOCAL level (as it should).
2. MUSIC REQUESTS
We take music requests every day.. If we got it, we’ll play it. And it’s not just music.
Callers go live on the air and send us email from around the world.
3. LOCAL WEATHER
Over the past 3 years, we’ve been there for each and every severe weather occurrence with special Weather
Advisories and Cal Trans Road Reports. Critical NWS Advisories are announced with alert tones. On normal days,
we air the latest from the National Weather Service at the bottom of each hour, 24X a day.
4. CNN NETWORK NEWS
CNN has their newsgathering act together. On top of our hourly reports, if breaking news happens, we go live with the
CNN “NewsLink” feed. We believe an informed audience is paramount, and being news “friendly” supports
our effort to communicate information. CNN News airs every hour, 24/7.
5. FEATURE PROGRAMS
On top of playing the best music on radio or web, Z100fm educates our audience daily with great feature programs
in morning drive and throughout the day. Plus, we carry more hours of weekend shows than any radio station in the world.
6. LIVE REMOTE BROADCASTS
Our Z-Personalities show up with the Z-Cruizer, wire in our great sounding Altec PA system, put up the Z-Banners
and start roaming with a wireless microphone. Plus, Z100fm always has a DJ at the studio throughout the
broadcast to take music requests for your event. We draw people, and it works for your business!
7. THE MUSIC
Z100fm covers a huge age group through strategic music programming. Everyone respects the OLDIES artists
that made today's sounds possible, and we add them in for a unique blend of 60s and 70s throughout the workday.
Plus, with over 4,000 songs in rotation, every day is a no repeat day. And even if we didn’t interact, people would
still tune to the music. Kids and their parents can finally listen to the same station.
8. DIGITAL AIR STUDIOS
Our AXS studio system is second to none. It consists of four Gateway computers connected to a network.
We don’t use tapes. Your commercial sounds the same the first or millionth play. This technology gives us the ability to get requests
on the air within minutes, and our listeners love that. Plus, we can “rotate” several of your commercials at once with software precision.
With our SuperLog computer scheduling software, your spot plays when it’s supposed to, every time.
9. Z-RECORDING STUDIOS
It’s a first class multi-track recording studio imported from our ex-business in Southern CA. We used it for LA radio and network
contracts, now it makes you great spots! Digital cut and paste editing makes it fast. Over 20,000 sound effects on disk and great CD
production music. Commercials are recorded at no charge, our production quality and writing is second to none,
and we love using voices from your business.
10. COMMUNITY RESPONSE
Our staff is available day and night. When the local police needed people to look for a missing gun, we rallied listener volunteers
to the site. When sandbags needed stuffing, we worked with local government and supplied warm bodies to get them filled.
When police came to us in severe winter weather at 2am asking our help in finding a lost child (when it was 10 degrees outside),
we went on the air live to interview authorities, and rebroadcast it every 15 minutes for the next 12 hours until the child was found.
Z100fm is a 24 hour radio station. This is our community too, our kids are in the schools and we’re glad to help.
11. WORLD WIDE WEB
When you come on board as an advertiser, your business is publicized right here on the Z100fm Home Page.
Check out the listings while you're here.
12. COS RADIO SHOW
Z100fm donates airtime weekly to the College of the Siskiyous Communications Program where kids learn about broadcasting.
Interesting topics, and an insight into what our kids are thinking can be heard Tuesdays from 6-8pm.
