2018 is a major milestone for KKFI 90.1FM. The KC-area community radio station celebrates 30 years of on-air service. To recognize and observe this significant achievement, an Open House is being held on Feb. 24 from 9AM to 6PM at the station’s offices located at 3901 Main Street, Suite 203 in Midtown Kansas City. Stop by, say hello, meet the station’s programmers and staff while touring the broadcast facilities that produce some of KC’s most beloved radio programming. Station memorabilia from throughout the years will be on display and an historian will be on site to answer questions and share stories about KKFI 90.1FM. Visitors can hear a live performance by Hot Club KC, watch a program in progress in Studio A, record a memory of KKFI or a station ID, glimpse the soundbooth and other areas of a community radio station. Whether you’re a longtime listener, a believer in the power of community radio, or someone interested in the broadcast industry generally, the KKFI 90.1FM Open House is a perfect opportunity to get a sneak peak at where the music and current affairs programs favored by so many Kansas City area citizens are produced. Food and drink? Yes, of course. It wouldn’t be a party without it. Water, soda, and juice will be provided as well as an assortment of light snacks and birthday cake. KKFI 90.1FM encourages both current and former listeners and volunteers who can’t make it to the Open House to actively participate in the celebration by joining us on-the-air to record personal KKFI stories by calling (816) 931-KKFI (5534 between 10AM and 2PM and again from 3PM -5PM. KKFI 90.1FM is the Kansas City area’s independent, noncommercial community radio station that seeks to stimulate, educate and entertain its audience, reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and provide a channel for individuals and groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or under-represented by other media.
