"I've always loved music, and when I first heard we were getting our very own community radio station I was so excited!  I made up my mind when I quit work, or went part-time, I wanted to be a part of that - and here we are today.  This station has totally enriched my life.  To be surrounded by all that music, I feel like I'm in "hog heaven"." ~ Peggy, The Wild Irish Rose
"The Community Affairs Hour on KAFM sets a fine example of how Community Radio can truly be a hub for messaging and networking within the range of its signal." ~ Jeff "Coach" Shuldener, Community Affairs Show Producer & Director

“I am honored and proud to be a founding member of KAFM Community Radio. It has been a privilege and joy to watch this member-supported, volunteer-oriented community radio station flourish and grow in every way over the last 25 years.  It’s a great privilege for me to still be a working part of this incredible community resource. Happy 25th Birthday KAFM!  It has been quite a life changing journey!”  ~ Suzi CremèCheeze, Cry of the Celts, On the Motorway, The Litchen Sink


“KAFM continues to get better and better thanks to you, the folks who for the first twenty five years have supported your community radio station. Thank You! Cheers to KAFM for another twenty five years of Real Radio In the Grand Valley!” ~ Joe Konecik, KAFM Broadcast Engineer


The Largest Variety of Music on the Air Waves   KAFM plays an incredibly diverse variety of music including independent artists and new music you won’t hear on anywhere else. There is almost a limitless amount of music that’s been recorded in the world, yet most of it doesn’t get heard.  KAFM is here to change that by keeping musical diversity at the top of our list when is comes to programming.
Inclusivity   KAFM volunteer programmers are the heart of the station.   They are all members of our community and everyone is invited to participate!

Discounted Tickets   To shows and productions in the Radio Room. As a Monument Member you receive automatic discounts to shows and events in the Radio Room and other events that KAFM partners with in the Grand Valley.

Automatically Entered to Win  When KAFM conducts Contests and Raffles your Monument Membership automatically gets you an entry ticket to each and every contest we run.  

Community Affairs Hour   KAFM provides a voice for local businesses, non-profits and community leaders to talk about issues that affect the Grand Valley without bringing politics to the discussion.
Our Neighbors   City governance and civic life get a spotlight from KAFM community radio in a manner that gives residents a chance to understand their neighborhoods in richer and more informed ways.
Our Announcers   KAFM gives the Grand Valley something to be proud of and excited by, because it’s a unique attraction for the area: local volunteers bringing their love of the region to life with fun programming, thoughtful discussions and a glimpse at the diversity of the beautiful area we live in. Our Announcers are your friends and neighbors!
Live & Local   In the increasingly corporate world of radio, low-power FM isn't about how far your signal reaches but how near.  KAFM provides a uniquely local view for the Grand Valley community.
Our Volunteers   KAFM provides community space for people to meet and collaborate. Volunteering at KAFM is a fun and often life-changing experience that encourages creativity and self-empowerment.   Our programmers and staff find it extraordinarily satisfying, not just to make radio in this unique fashion, but to also help transform community life.
