With a smorgasbord of programming to choose from, your ears will find something delicious on Fresh Air Radio, KFAI. This “People Powered” independent radio station (located at 90.3 on your FM dial) dishes up the widest selection of music and news, and is dedicated to serve the public with everything from community-oriented shows like Somali Voices to the best of underground hip-hop on 2 the Break-A-Dawn. A killer Friday night line-up provides a nice excuse to stay in front of the radio: Starting with local favorite Lolly Obeda spinning the sweetest blues, R&B and soul on the Sugar Shop, followed later by the Local Sound Department (aa beefy helping of music from the Twin Cities) onto surf, hotrod and garage music with Radio Rumpus Room. Finally, the Friday Night Poker Party closes out the night with a freeform theme show. Radio doesn’t get much better than this!
