Vinyl Voices Support Team
You can join our Saturday DJ series as a representative of KFAI. Spend a Saturday afternoon listening to fabulous music, enjoying a couple free beverages and collecting contact information and customer tickets for raffles held during the event.
The Front Desk volunteer is the face and voice of KFAI. Visitors are often relieved to hear a real person answer the phone, and the personal service of welcoming someone to the station cannot be underestimated. This vital job is a great way to learn more about other volunteers and people at KFAI.
News Readers and Reporters
Scheduled during daytime hours, volunteer one shift/week recording, editing and writing news stories. This role provides the opportunity to train in every aspect of radio.
Critique and Review
Choose an on-air program and write a brief review on the content. Provide listener ratings and feedback to help hosts improve the presentation of their program.
In this role you will assist with show themes, program structure, and scheduling program guests. Additionally, this role will help to promote on social media and the KFAI website, update playlist online, research new music in the KFAI music library for program hosts to play online.
Assist in maintaining 50,000+ items in KFAI's Music Library. Help to catalogue, digitize content, and process new releases for the collection.
All events that KFAI is involved in need volunteers to staff tables, answer questions, and generally serve as the point persons for Fresh Air Radio. This is a low-pressure, high pay-off way to volunteer for KFAI and get to know our listeners -- and listeners-to-be!

What do KFAI volunteers do?
Nearly everything! Volunteers produce programming, work in the music library, represent the station at events, participate in committees, create station promos, contribute to the web site, and much more.
How can I get my own show on KFAI?
First, become an active volunteer by attending orientation. Sign up to begin assisting with off-air volunteer roles. You will then have the opportunity to take Board Certification training classes that can help prepare you to become a program host. Once you have completed these basic classes, you will be in a better position to apply for program openings.
