KAFM The Voice of Our Community
KAFM never misses a day to use its airwaves for the greater good ... to build a better, more connected, thriving community. KAFM’s slogan as “The Voice of Our Community,” provides specialty interest talk shows and podcasts from local and regional Civic, Educational and Charitable Resources for our listeners.
All of KAFM’s announcers and show hosts are volunteers, who personally curate a huge variety of commercial free music. Broadcasting at 88.1 FM in Grand Junction, and at 96.9 FM in the Peach and Wine Country of Palisade, Colorado, KAFM also Streams their broadcast online and has a new KAFM App where listeners can tune-in on their mobile devices.
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3), KAFM and relies on the generosity of donations from Individuals, Corporations and Foundations to ensure its operations.
In 1992, a small group of dedicated and civic-minded citizens sat down to discuss the possibility of creating a locally owned, operated, and programmed community radio station in Grand Junction. Seven years later, the station made its first broadcast. Today, while media consolidation continues, KAFM continues to grow stronger every year. The recipe for this success story is quite simple: provide a place where local folks can program music genres with a human touch, be accessible by all people and organizations in the community so they can share valuable resources to the listening audience, and to provide an open platform where all viewpoints are welcome.
