In 2011, Friends of Community Media (formerly Friends of Community Radio) and KKFI hosted a “Grass-Roots Radio Conference” in Kansas City. People from community radio stations from all over the U.S. convened to discuss issues common to all.
After so many years, kkfi’s original transmitter bit the dust! But a new one, dedicated by Kansas City’s assistant mayor in September was put in place and turned on. With a great celebration, of course!
A benefit with Jim Hightower to raise funds to replace the aging transmitter took place in March of 2011 at All Souls UU Church in Kansas City.
