We here at KKFI are asking your help in obtaining the equipment to broadcast live performances and other local events in good quality stereo sound.  We have partnered with the Folk Alliance International to be able broadcast sets from the conference starting February 19th in Kansas City, Missouri.  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.  We have 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.  We plan to use this 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.

Risks and challenges

We have a dedicated EFT team at the station to help with any and all electronics issues. We have an excellent relationship with local artists and club owners who have and will help us with any logistical difficulties. The Folk Alliance has generously offered us both monetary and publicity help. The equipment we seek is easy to use and historically has very few problems. We vetted this with other stations in the area who use the Comrex equipment and they vouched for it's reliability. Since we are able to choose how and when we do remote broadcasts, we have the ability to choose our times and locations that are to our advantage and present little or no difficulties.
