"I listen to a lot of radio on-line and I don't know of a station that's more committed to free software and open-source values than this little station... I listen to it in Santa Barbara and it's already one of my faves."

--Doc Searls, senior editor of Linux Journal, from a short piece titled "KRUU Models Open-Source Radio" in the May 2007 issue

Welcome to the KRUU!

Community radio comes to Fairfield on September 30

by Virginia Hancock | Staff Writer

Work is becoming play at 405 N. 2nd Street, broadcast site for 100.1 KRUU FM, Fairfield’s new community radio station. Roland Wells, James Moore, Steve Cooperman, and Stephen Fry, the station’s Programming Committee, are on the fast track to give Fairfield’s collective voice a chance to be publicly heard. Going on air September 30, the 100-watt, low power, non-commercial, non-profit station vows to “put the unity in community,” welcoming all shows, help, ideas and people.

Emphasizing local programming, KRUU (pronounced “crew”) leaders aim to provide “an open, inclusive, diverse forum for music, creative expression, information and entertainment that encourages dialogue and community involvement.”
