One day, early in it's history, KKCR put out a request for some assistance in the use of the Hawaiian language. I had studied some Hawaiian language, culture and history, and so I volunteered my assistance to KKCR in their effort to provide more accurate information and use of the Hawaiian language.
I was invited to the station to have a look around, was taught how to play CDs on the air and was soon left alone in the studio to carry on. That was my start as a disc jockey at Kauai Community Radio and it's been a lot of fun ever since.

COMMUNITY RADIO ON THE GARDEN ISLAND
In the wake of Hurricane `Iniki's devastation in 1992, community members gathered to develop a plan to stay connected, informed and safe. Their brainchild was Kaua`i Community Radio.
In the summer of 1997, KKCR broadcast its first signals island-wide. The small community-based, non-profit radio station connects all the remote communities on the isolated Garden Island. KKCR is committed to providing relevant, accurate, timely information during times of crisis. It's also dedicated to representing the unique character of the island community.
KKCR's program schedule reflects the broad, rich spectrum of Kaua`i's community. Musical genres include vintage and contemporary Hawaiian, Jazz, Alternative, Reggae, World, Classical, Rock and Blues. Kaua`i Live features in-studio performances from local and visiting artists on Sunday evenings.
The Public Affairs programming includes weekly call-in talk shows, a Hawaiian Entertainment Calendar and a Community Calendar. Special interest programs include gardening, island pets, health and wellness, and teen radio.
As a commercial-free, non-profit entity, KKCR's survival depends on support from its community - local and global. Please join KKCR's `ohana (family). To support listener-powered community radio, please click here.

The Kekahu Foundation, which operates KKCR - Kauai's independent, non-commercial, listener-supported community radio station - is accepting applications for candidates for the Foundation's Board of Directors.
KEKAHU FOUNDATION SEEKS CANDIDATES FOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
KKCR's mission is to stimulate, educate and entertain its audiences, while preserving, perpetuating and celebrating Hawaiian culture. KKCR strives to reflect the diversity of the community by providing a forum for overlooked, suppressed or under-represented voices and music.
The Kekahu Foundation Board is responsible for ensuring that all legal and financial matters of the non-profit Kekahu Foundation are effectively managed to enable KKCR to meet its mission. Directors focus on the long-term direction, policies, financial health, and stable operation of the Foundation and KKCR. They are not directly responsible for the day-to-day operation of the radio station.
The Board is seeking candidates who are dedicated to the success of community radio on Kauai. This year, if 15% of KKCR's members inform the Board this November that they desire an election, an election will be conducted by mail between mid-December and mid-January, and the two candidates who receive the most votes will be seated by the Board. Beyond that, the Board will select additional Directors from the field of candidates to fill other vacancies on the Board.
To become a candidate, a person must be a Kauai resident and must have been a member of the Kekahu Foundation/KKCR since December 1, 2012. An application can be downloaded at HERE. Completed applications are due by November 30, 2013.
Each candidate's written statement will appear on the KKCR website and on the ballot. In addition, all candidates will have the opportunity to participate in on-air forums. For more information, or to request an application by mail, contact the KKCR business office at 826-7774 between 12 pm and 4 pm, Monday through Friday.
