COMMUNITY RADIO ON THE GARDEN ISLAND
In the summer of 1997, KKCR broadcast its first signals island-wide. Our 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 our island community.

KKCR's program schedule reflects the broad, rich spectrum of Kauaʻi's community. Musical genres include vintage and contemporary Hawaiian, Jazz, Alternative, Reggae, World, Classical, Rock and Blues. Kauaʻi Live features in-studio performances from local and visiting artists on Sunday evenings.

The Community Affairs programming includes weekly call-in talk shows - a Hawaiian Entertainment Calendar and a Community Calendar. Special interest programs include gardening, pets, health and wellness programs.

As a commercial-free, non-profit entity, KKCR's survival depends on support from our community - local and global. Please join KKCR's `ohana (family). To support listener-powered community radio, please click here.

KKCR FEATURED PROGRAMMER
DJ JOE RIZAL
HI to PI ~
10pm -Midnight ~ Mondays


KKCR asked DJ JOE RIZAL some questions about his KKCR program & volunteering at KKCR

Describe your background, work experience, education, etc.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved in the Island of Kaua'i back in 2014. I studied Mass Communication at Cavite State University - Main, Philippines and am currently working as a teller in a local bank in Hawaii.

What inspired you to volunteer at KKCR?
Basically, I just want Filipinos to be proud of their nationality and thank people of Hawaii for accepting the Filipino community. This is my way of doing so. I worked as researcher in a radio show back in the Philippines. Also, I was an avid fan of radio show since High School. I once dreamt to be a DJ and entertain listeners. I never thought it would happen.

How has your volunteer experience been? Do you have any advice for people who aren't sure if they would like to volunteer?
I never felt intimidated since my first day. Every member of KKCR is very loving and supportive. The structure of KKCR station represents its people - simple and welcoming. Advice to aspiring volunteers: Just give it a shot. That's what I did and magical things happened to me in an instant.

Describe your show HI to PI.
The show is mixed format. We will play Filipino English songs. There is a the talk show, "Talk about Filipino Segment", that features random topics related to Philippines. Also, we have the "Gimme some tagalog", a segment that teaches a l east two tagalog words every show.

The show has three main objectives: first to promote diversity of culture; second, to encourage Filipinos of Kaua'i to be more active in the community; third, to share to the world the interesting things about Philippines.

In the future, we'll look forward to a special segment that will feature travel tips in the Philippines. This will include tourist spots, safety information and estimated expenses for food, transportation, accommodations, etc. I think this is important because, for me, Philippines and Hawaii are just the same. They both have different places that are included in seven wonders of the world. Except that PI is bigger and less expensive than HI.
