"As a Programmer and Staff member for over 13 years, 2 of which being General Manager, I take the guidance and fulfillment of KZFR’s mission as a moral imperative. With no parent company or licensee overseeing our organization we rely on you, the supporter, listener, and volunteer to guide KZFR on our journey.

Over the past 33 years, KZFR 90.1FM has been an essential, independent source of news and cultural content for the communities of the North State. Our excellently curated music programs like Celt Radio, Devastation Sounds, Island Rhythms, One World Music, and Random Pick keep you entertained throughout the week. Our locally produced news & public affairs programs like Peace & Social Justice, Ecotopia, The Real Issue, and the North State Water Report keep you informed of issues that impact the North State.
