KKFI listed as one of best public radio stations in U.S.

The music magazine Paste ran a list it called “10 public radio stations you wish were in your town,” and Kansas City community radio station KKFI (90.1 FM) made the list at No. 9.

No other stations from Kansas or Missouri made the list.

Paste cited the station for its music variety: “Kansas City is known for its wide range of musical preferences, and has become a hub for concert tours in the Midwest.

“Fittingly, this station has offered a wide variety of programs, based around anything from rap to psychedelic, since 1988. Also involved in local and national goings-on, the station offers podcasts on environmental issues, women’s concerns and local arts.”
