Listener-supported radio is unique across the country, and KFAI is proud to have been bringing music, arts, and information programs to the Twin Cities for over 30 years. KFAI is not ownd by a media network.

KFAI is proud to present renowned journalist, author and host of Democracy Now, Amy Goodman as part of the KFAI Speaker Series on Sunday, November 29th, at the Cowles Auditorium at 12pm at the University of Minnesota, 301 19th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55454.

KFAI membership drives have long tails, and well after the two-week on-air portion ended contributions continue to stream in — via the mail, the Web and even walked in the door. When we officially wrapped up the Spring membership campaign on Friday, April 17, 1,166 donors had contributed $98,614 to Fresh Air Radio. Eighty-two percent of this figure has already been paid — an important consideration! Fundraising success of this magnitude only happens through the effort of our dedicated volunteers and support of our listener-members. To everyone who contributed to this Spring’s success we express our sincerest gratitude and thanks.

Don’t forget: Unlike its staff and volunteers, Fresh Air’s donation page never sleeps. You can go to www.kfai.org/donations any time to contribute to the radio station that defines “community” — KFAI Fresh Air Community Radio!
