FIVE TONS O' TREES. WOW!

Jim Hightower, best-selling author, syndicated columnist & radio host:
"Thanks to KRUU, independent community radio--that's what makes a difference in our world and in our society. Proud to be on that station."
People often tell us how much they love KRUU. Did you know that giving voice to Fairfield, creating a center for friends, neighbors and visitors to express themselves and share their passions while connecting with loved ones worldwide, has inspired over 150,000 volunteer hours from people across the community spectrum?
Candy Crowley, CNN chief political correspondent to KRUU host Dennis Raimondi:
"Radio was my first love. I just think it's one of the purest forms of communication in so many ways... I heart radio."
When KRUU became the Midwest's only solar-powered radio station in 2009, all donated by the community, Radio Ink: Radio's Premier Management & Marketing Magazine wrote: "KRUU helps brand the community's creative, cultural, entrepreneurial and sustainable elements."
Sue Goodwin, Executive Producer of NPR's "Talk of the Nation" to host James Moore:
"It's great to be here and great to see community radio at work. I really value what community radio does."
Do you value KRUU and what it means to the community? Whether you’re an active listener, an online streamer, or simply want to encourage a key cultural amenity, will you help support us financially today?
Graham Nash, of Crosby, Stills & Nash, speaking with KRUU host Mike Ragogna:
"I think this is my first interview with a solar station. Congratulations! Congratulate everyone there who brought this to fruition."
Yo-Yo Ma, 15-time Grammy Award-winning cellist, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree, and a UN Messenger of Peace:
"I only have one regret, I don't have a solar-powered cello. You have a solar-powered radio station and that's very, very cool."
What an incredible honor connecting with such gifted souls right here in our hometown. And what a valuable resource KRUU has been as a magnet attracting all manner of interesting and colorful people who’ve given so much back to the community.
Whether it’s getting the latest happenings around town, news from the city council, the mayor, convention and visitors bureau, the chamber, art walk, the university, or from around the world, enjoying great tasting radio live, highlighting events and organizations, authors, newsmakers, artists, businesspeople, weather updates and more, or tuning in for the most eclectic patchwork quilt of music you’ll ever hear, we got it covered.
Low power radio can be anything. One station plays nothing but whale sounds. KRUU’s founding vision was simple: let the community speak for and define itself. We are who shows up. Adopting the old Iowa ‘build it and they will come’ philosophy, in true ‘field of dreams’ style, people have “shone” up and keep showing up.
And that’s the most amazing thing about KRUU. The symphony of talented volunteer hosts who create on air magic day in and day out, year after year, sharing their hearts and passions openly for all to enjoy.
They give freely. Will you?
Help keep community radio alive.
Listen fresh, listen local.
Thanks from the whole KRUU
Super variety for a super community.

Community radio is not about doing something for the community;
it's about the community doing something for itself.
