Through a Kickstarter campaign KKFI 90.1 FM is asking supporters to help in obtaining the equipment to broadcast live performances and other local events in good quality stereo sound. KKFI has partnered with the Folk Alliance International to be able broadcast sets from the annual conference, starting February 19 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Watch this Kickstarter video and then click the “K” to donate to the campaign to raise $10,000 for the equipment.
The first night of the conference we plan to broadcast sets from local musicians and bands so they can be heard by not only the Kansas City audiences but also by our international listeners who listen via our online stream. We may also broadcast shows from some of the other international artists playing on other nights of the conference. The station has already obtained the promise of a discount from the company involved, but we need the finances in order to buy the equipment directly from them. KKFI plans to use the equipment in the coming months to present live remote broadcasts, as well as record non-musical events in the public interest. We have local news and eco-news shows, as well as labor-related programming, who can also make use of the broadcast capabilities that we will derive from the use of this equipment.
Please help fund us in whatever amount you feel is appropriate. We thank you all in advance for helping community radio thrive.
