KYAQ is embarking on a unique experience for you as a listener and supporter of local, community radio. We are holding an online auction as a fundraiser and as a way for community members to show their interest in radio broadcasting that is “woke” – in other words, not media business as usual.
KYAQ does not collect any funding from federal, state or county government. We are volunteer run and survive (barely) on listener donations, underwriting, technical support from Oregon Community Media, and grants. The online auction is one of our major fundraisers, occurring once a year.
The programming that is a vital part of KYAQ’s broadcast includes Democracy Now with Amy Goodman, the only national radio news show that provides listeners with an alternate, progressive view of how things are going both around the country and internationally. Her interviews are insightful and focused on voices that are rarely heard on air. Other non-local shows of interest include the Bradcast, Alternative Radio, and Sojourner Truth.
We are very strong believers in local programming and carry music (Dead and Friends, Latin Corner, Rock Through the Ages, Billy’s Blues Hour, Classical Music for Everyone, Bluegrass by the Sea), public affairs (FYI, Stronger Together), local news & weather, and shows addressing issues for the LGBT community (Rhonda’s Rainbow Room). Local producers Michael and Maia Stout address health and diet in Healthy Diet, Healthy Planet.
Help KYAQ continue to broadcast exceptional programming, not carried on any other radio station in Lincoln County. Beginning December 1st, there will be a button here to begin your auction adventure. And many thanks for your ongoing support of KYAQ 91.7 FM.
