I notice you play commercials and have on-air fundraisers, what is the money used for?
We’re really thankful for our business supporters (who you hear on the commercials) as they help with much of the everyday expense of running a radio station (mortgage, lights, etc.!) Because of our Family Friendly promise, we do have to turn away a number of potential advertising dollars because the business or content doesn’t meet the standards of that promise. Sharathon (our on-air fundraiser) is where listeners like you give to fill the gap and provide the financial need for Spirit 92.9 to stay on the air. Since we began doing fundraisers in 2004, our audience size has nearly tripled, we’re able to bring in national concert events to St. Cloud and we’re more active in the community than ever! Thanks to the financial support of friends like you! Learn more & give HERE.
I love your station…but I lose your signal as I get close to the cities…can you make it go further?
Unfortunately, our tower is as tall and our signal is as strong as the FCC will allow, so we can’t perform any upgrades to reach more of Minnesota and beyond. What we can do is prayerfully consider expanding through translators (additional signals) in the future-with God’s provision. In the meantime-you can listen online anytime at www.spirit929.com or download our free mobile app!
What was that song?
If you ever hear a song, but don’t catch the name or artist, you can easily look it up on the home page of our website or on the app. Or, if you’re in your car, try us on the studio line at 320-257-0929.
How do you choose the music?
At Spirit 92.9 we’re doing our best to play the right mix of music for your family — including old favorites and the fresh new ones. We take each new release (the record labels determine which songs to put out from each new CD and in what order) into serious consideration and evaluate its message, tone and quality. We also consider what Christian music listeners are feeling in our music surveys and national testing results. We do our best to choose music that will be positive and uplifting for your family!
We have an event coming up; will you help us spread the word?
We’d be happy to! When you submit your event it’ll be included on our online event calendar. The DJ’s will also choose events from the calendar to highlight on their shows throughout the week!
Can you advertise my church or organization’s event for free?
Every week, Spirit 92.9 has numerous requests for Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) from worthy non-profit organizations, churches and governmental agencies. There are so many groups requesting time that if we accommodated everyone, we wouldn’t have time to play any Positive Hit Music! As an alternative, we offer a Community Event’s Calendar on our website, and our air staff will often direct listeners there to learn about upcoming events and fundraisers. You can post your event for FREE here.
Would you join us at our event?
We occasionally attend events for our advertisers. If you are currently promoting an event please contact your account executive for more information.
Could we come and visit the station?
SURE!! We LOVE that!! To schedule a visit, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to host your scout group, church group, club, classroom or family! We have pre-scheduled days in the summer and winter for tours.
