Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 1) - Growth with the Lions' Audio Network, the official broadcast home of Loyola Marymount University athletics, will take another step forward with the first Lions' Coaches Show on Monday, Oct. 6.

The inaugural season of the coaches' show will air the first Monday of each month starting with a special one-hour show on Monday, Oct. 6 starting at 9:00 p.m. The show will be broadcast live on KXLU 88.9 FM and on the Internet at www.LMULions.com.

The five athletics programs competing for championships in the fall season will be highlighted during the first show, including men's soccer coach Paul Krumpe, women's soccer coach Gregg Murphy, volleyball coach Steve Stratos, men's water polo coach John Loughran and cross country junior Bernie Ochoa.

The first Lions' Coaches Show will also be a part of the annual fundraiser for KXLU radio. The station will launch its annual fundraising drive on Friday, October 3rd at 10 am. The drive will continue non-stop, 24 hours day, for an entire week, concluding on Friday, October 10th at 6 pm.

Additionally, independent rock bands Pleasant Demeanor, The Mae Shi, and Sesku Roba will perform live in-studio sets during the week.

For the first time the athletic department will take a role in giving back to the station that has been airing LMU basketball for more than 40 years. The Lions will be selling five prizes during the Oct. 6 show that can only be purchased during the fundraiser.
