Together We're Community!

KZFR Community Radio began broadcasting July 6th, 1990 after years of hard work by some very dedicated pioneers. Erik Mathisen is regarded as the prime mover who got the ball rolling. Lee Edwards and Lars Larson are among the folks we honor for putting KZFR on the air.

We're lucky they managed to pull it off, too! There just aren't many community radio stations left in the United States. Today, KZFR Community Radio operates with the support of approximately 120 community volunteers who provide a wide variety of music programming as well as local public affairs and information programs.

Free spirited eccentric, out spoken, caring, loveable oddball. There was no one else like him. He was pure Chico. He'll be missed by many in this community and beyond.
