KSKQ is the voice of the community throughout the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon. It broadcasts at 89.5 FM and 94.1 FM and streams around the world at www.kskq.org.
Since 2007, KSKQ has brought progressive news and outstanding music to the Rogue Valley. We were the first and only broadcaster of “Democracy Now,” and KSKQ volunteers produce the most diverse, original offerings of any radio station throughout Southern Oregon.
Since KSKQ’s inception, we have stood side-by-side with local causes, such as the non-GMO ordinance passed in Jackson County in 2014, and the station continues to support healthy farms and sustainable ways of living in community.
KSKQ has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to hire a full-time Executive Director committed to environmental, social and economic justice, and to improve the station. This leader will work with our team of volunteers to build KSKQ’s capacity to support local news, local organizations and causes. As the Executive Director works to make the station more financially sustainable, our community as a whole will markedly benefit.
With your help, KSKQ will grow as the voice of community in the Rogue Valley. The airwaves are a public good, meant to serve the People directly. KSKQ will continue to make those airwaves available to you--as it has for 13 years.
Thank you for taking the time to support this worthy cause. Non-commercial community radio can do more to address social issues than any other instrument in the local media sphere. You can make a difference by supporting KSKQ today.
KSKQ - The voice in your heart.
Hello, Southern Oregon, Northern California and the rest of the universe listening in on the web! This is Roo Grostein, THE CANNAvangelist…bringing you the industry inside scoop on cannabis news, education, and culture right here from the heart of Oregon’s own cannabis country: The Rogue Valley.
The show’s mission is to give cannabis back to you, the people, by empowering you with information & helping to break down the stigmas that have kept our communities divided for so long. I'm here to tell the unique stories of the real folks who have the passion to normalize this amazing plant and showcase the industry, culture, and lives that depend on it. It's high time for us to come together and make the world a better place and I, for one, believe cannabis might be our last hope to do so...let's discuss. And check out the show's website.
Tune in to Local Smoke on Mondays from 2 - 4 pm.
There must be uncountable ways to organize a music show. There's genre, era, year, geography, and untold subdivisions these categories. KSKQ features plenty of music shows that use divisions like Classical, Reggae, Jazz, Caribbean, African, or 1980s music. But there one music show that's different. Maya's Mix isn't concerned with genres, eras or geography. Maya Seligman picks songs according to her own method--the theme. A theme may be a single word in the title, "You" or "Fire." It may be a color, a holiday or other special day. It may be a body part or a four letter word. There are really no limits to finding a theme and the resulting music is as diverse as the radio station and as unique as the DJ, Maya.
When Maya Seligman first came to KSKQ in 2008, she was motivated by her nostalgia over her days as a DJ at her college radio station at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA, and the opportunity to support community radio and the larger Ashland community. Her theme-based show is also an outreach effort to her fan base. Using her Facebook group, Maya solicits ideas for her weekly shows. The responses come quickly and span a vast terrain of music. Listeners always discover new songs, new artists and new genres. All her ideas, reflections and insights are collected on her blog Maya's Mix, so there's no reason to miss out on past themes.
Tune in and be surprised every Friday from 7-9 pm.
