Arts & Culture


When you think about the arts and culture, does Kansas City come to mind? If not, it should and so should KKFI! Why? Because KKFI has the Kansas City scene covered!

We have such programs as “Arts Magazine,” which covers our community’s art scene from theatre and film to the art galleries, including small independent productions.

Stop by “Anything Goes” for lively information with our guests from Kansas City’s entertainment, restaurant and cultural world.

If you are in the mood for some classical music, we have “Chamber Music,” where you can hear Renaissance to the contemporary, featuring local community groups and concerts.
