  • Democracy Now Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 450 stations in North America. The program is hosted by award-winning journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez and produced out of the Downtown Community Television Center, a community media center in New York City’s Chinatown. Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides our audience with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S.corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, the War and Peace Report hosts real debates – debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.

  • Between the Lines/Bioneers Between the Lines covers a wide range of political, economic and social topics.

Bioneers brings bold innovators with break-through solutions to the airwaves with our eighth annual radio series. “Bioneers: Revolution from the Heart of Nature” airs in more than 250 cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Ireland and is free to all stations, distributed by WFMT Radio Network.

Rebecca could give you even more, but she won’t. Eclectics goes all over the place, wacky, weird, scary, silly and even controversial. After all – this is KKFI – you (the listener) is who we do this for.
    LIVE @ 10:00 AM
  • Anything Goes The Anything Goes” show premiered on KKFI 90.1 FM in the spring of 2000 as an alternative (and sometimes ridiculously zany) public affairs program focused on Kansas City’s cultural life, from astrology to zoology – and everything in-between. The call-in program has given KKFI listeners the opportunity to talk to local and national celebrities, authors, charlatans, playwrights, ghost hunters, chefs, drag queens, musicians and mixologists, historians and hysterics. Popular recurring guests include astrologer Brenda G. Smith, Northeast News publisher and author Michael Bushnell, gardening expert Kristopher Dabner, and historian Christopher Leitch, among others. No topic is too controversial – or crazy – for discussion on the show which was once (and possibly accidently) voted “Best Local Radio Show” by Kansas City Magazine. It is also the only talk show on the KKFI schedule that features its own in-studio mascot, “Hattie, the Studio Dog,” who effectively pitches for donations during the station’s fund drive.
    LIVE @ 12:00 PM
  • Your Jazz Afternoon My show usually includes birthdays of famous and not so famous jazz musicians, recent releases, local artists, interviews, and classic jazz from the likes of Charlie Parker, Miles, Coltrane, Blue Note, Prestige, Riverside, etc. Heavy on the small group instrumental jazz; light on vocalists and big bands.
