I'm a KRFC fan from Florida, though I used to live in Fort Collins. There's just something special about this station that helps me stave off that homesick feeling I get for the Colorado Front Range. I love that I can listen to KRFC from across the country online--even on my iPhone--and just have to say thanks for helping me transition to a digital Internet listener after I moved.

Local radio is the best and this is the best local radio.
There are many benefits to riding a bike. But if you catch me driving around town, I'm listening to KRFC.
Having lived in Fort Collins for the past 17 years, I was thrilled to have been interviewed for KRFC's "Support Local Culture" program. Its recognition of the Arts as an integral part of our lively community makes this program a perfect example of collaboration and community. KRFC is well known as a promoter of our region's musical talent and now, through "Support Local Culture", the visual and performing arts as well. The radio interviews and supplementary website profiles have led to increased awareness of the breadth of talent in our city. I am proud to have been part of "Support Local Culture" and its promotion of and dedication to Fort Collins' artists.
KRFC has been instrumental in helping SpokesBUZZ Fort Collins in our mission to amplify our local music scene, develop our local artists and promote Fort Collins as a progressive cultural destination. Our partnership with KRFC has resulted in SpokesBUZZ bands performing on air via Live at Lunch, assistance with promotion of our nonprofit's programs with national impact (such as BandSwap and our annual Colorado South by Southwest showcase in Austin), consistent and comprehensive coverage of the Colorado music scene, and of course, local music being played on air and online, which helps foster our community's culture and share our town's tremendous talent with the world. We are also so appreciative of the effort and excellence KRFC exemplifies. Long live local radio!
I work as a cabdriver in Loveland and have the radio tuned to 88.9 for a good part of my shift. The variety of music they play is amazing. I especially like that DJs have two-hour stints as this allows for an even wider variety of music. And there are no annoying commercials! My work day wouldn't be the same without KRFC. I recently became a sustaining member because I love the great music coming over the airwaves. Keep it up, KRFC FM!!!
Listening to KRFC is like being invited over by friends to share their unique music collections. You hear things you know but you're always hearing something new that you like and wouldn't have heard otherwise.

As a Professor of Community Arts, I appreciate the "Support Local Culture" program as an innovative way to support a creative community within the Fort Collins area. This program helps introduce Artists to the community as neighbors and friends. It opens up a dialogue for collaboration and support. This program is unique and uses 'Community Radio' as a catalyst for community building on a large scale, not only through music but through all Artistic endeavors.
Thank you Michelle and KRFC!
Working as a volunteer programmer at KRFC has been a great experience. My show, Rhythms of Youth, gives young musicians a creative space in which to to be heard and respected, which are the most important things you can give to them.

I'm a stay at home mom and smart people on the radio keep my head from exploding.
You feel a sense of community... like you belong.
