Since our birth in 1978, KFAI has always been growing, adapting and changing. From humble beginnings in a church belfry to our current home in the heart of the Cedar-Riverside area, we have worked to provide a voice to underserved communities while building bridges of understanding and joy between the people that make the Twin Cities the special place it is. As we’ve grown, we’ve expanded our reach to share those voices worldwide and become a window for the world. 

KFAI is run for and by our community. All of our hosts are community leaders, musicians, activists, change makers, music lovers, and work hard to give voice to communities. Our programming is largely supported by folks in our community (like you!).  Together, we’ll keep KFAI here and growing for years to come.
