This month we are taking donations for KPSQ 97.3, a nonprofit public radio station located in downtown Fayetteville on the third floor of The Chancellor Hotel.
From their website:
“Our Mission Statement:
KPSQ features locally produced programming and presents cultural, artistic, and political perspectives currently underrepresented in the media. Our goal is to inform and empower listeners to play an active role in our radio station and in the community. Our programming promotes equality, peace, sustainability, democracy, and social and economic justice.
KPSQ features a VERY ECLECTIC mix of music and talk shows. Tune in to one of our local DJ’s shows where you will hear everything from World Music to 1930’s Swing to Psychedelia from the 60’s and much more. Tune in to our shows featuring LOCAL MUSIC including Music Makers and Americana Alley. And when talking “eclectic”, we must also mention the unique “Poetize the News” produced by local bard Doug Shields, Our Ozark Blend from Farmer Bee, What’s Cooking, and tweet along with our midnight show Restless.
Check out our excellent syndicated music shows, not to be heard anywhere else in NWA, such as Undercurrents from the Native Voice One network, and the acclaimed Acoustic Cafe. As a Pacifica Network Affiliate we have access to great music from around the nation such as Down the Road, Upfront Soul, Juke in the Back, Geezer Rock, Blues America, Gifts and Messages.
You will also want to check out the many news and talk shows, on the radio in NWA only on KPSQ. Our daily news shows include Democracy Now, The David Pakman Show, and The Thom Hartmann Show. Ecology and Science shows include Sea Change Radio, Big Picture Science, and Explorations. Cultural offerings include Arts Express, From the Vault, Song of the Soul, and On Being.
The KPSQ Music Library features many hours of music curated by local volunteers and DJs. Each hour plays a different genre: pop, rock, reggae, country, folk and Americana, R&B, blues, and jazz. Check back frequently to find the music and shows that you love.
KPSQ is licensed to the Omni Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology. To find out more about the Omni Center visit www.omnicenter.org.

And don’t forget to tune in on Sundays when our Outreach Coordinator, Heather Artripe, and HR Manager, Julie Wahl, host “What’s Cooking,” a food and music show featuring food history and folklore, recipes, stories, and food-related music to get your toes a-tappin’. What’s Cooking airs on Sundays from 1pm – 2pm.
