We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Music Update Dec. 18: KUAA Runs Impromptu Radio-thon


KUAA likes to call themselves “the little radio station that could,” and they’ve certainly been chugging along in the two short years they’ve been broadcasting their diverse, multi-lingual-focused music to the people of the greater SLC area. A recent radio tower expansion has offered more reliable broadcasting (I, for one, can now snag the station in my car more consistently), and now they’re looking at even more growth in the Utah Arts Hub space they already call home. With a goal of $10,000 that is almost half-met, this is functionally the station’s first stab at a radiothon-like fundraising event, and the perfect time for fans of the station to become more than just listeners. Now’s the time to become part of this young community radio station as it grows into an even better version of itself, able to serve even more parts of SLC and beyond. All donations are tax-deductible, and can be made at They’re trying to raise the money before the end of the year, so that gives fans new and old alike just under two weeks to chip in. So get to it while there’s still time, and then tune in to KUAA at 99.9FM or online at
