Join KTYD in Supporting Doctors Without Walls for a 22-Hour Radio Marathon and Celebration at The Benchmark Eatery
In an effort to support humanitarian medicine in Santa Barbara, KTYD on-air talent led by Lin Aubuchon, Bill Pesso, Dennis Mitchell and the other members of the KTYD tribe will be broadcasting live from the studio from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm on Thursday, Nov. 16, and live from the patio of the Benchmark Eatery, one of Santa Barbara’s favorite downtown hot spots, from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm on Friday, Nov. 17, followed by an after party with live music from the Brian Titus Trio.
The radioathon will feature celebrity musicians, local musical talent, first responders, and the volunteer docs that take to the streets for Doctors Without Walls.
We will have a team from Doctors Without Walls at the Benchmark during the entire radio marathon. Stop by the Benchmark any time during these 22 hours and enjoy great company, doctor-recommended eats, and live music!
Stop by the Benchmark for our After Party from 5:00 to 8:00 pm on Friday, Nov. 17 and rock with the docs! Enjoy live music from The Brambles, the Bryan Titus Trio, and Superstoked.
Also, enjoy lunch at The Benchmark on Friday — proceeds will be donated to the cause!
