Presenting a NEW SHOW on KKCR! We are partnering with Story For All to present Land Stories: Farming and Kaua’i Culture. 9-10am on the Fourth Friday of each month.

Land Stories is about preserving the cultural wealth of Kaua‘i as a basis for building respect and appreciation for one another and the land we share and depend upon. It’s about providing our community with a rich history of this precious land and how to care for it. It’s about building historical perspective and inspiration for present and future generations to sustain, protect, and care for our beloved ‘aina.

This program is funded by a grant from the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities, through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

You can still give to KKCR

We did not meet our $60,000 goal for our Laulima Fund Drive. Not from a void of care for community media and local content.

But because our listeners care A LOT.

With the events in Maui consuming our news, politics, and fundraising efforts, conscious and informed listeners like YOU have invested your already strapped donating dollars into helping our Maui ‘ohana heal.


And we think that’s pretty great. 


Don’t forget to keep KKCR in your minds when reaching out to give.

Many hands make light work.


Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa

In Search of the Wisdom and Heartbeat of Ancient Kaua‘i

Presented by Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua

Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa is a cultural educational series which highlights Kaua‘i’s wahi pana, or storied and celebrated places, through mele pule, mele oli and mele hula – prayers, chants and dances that have been entrusted to the lineage of Kaipuwai. Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua is a revered cultural practitioner and master teacher of traditional hula, born and raised on Kaua‘i. As the hiapo, or firstborn in her family, she was reared in the custom of hānai – freely given to be nurtured and groomed in hula by her maternal grandmother, Helen Kaipuwai Kekua Waiau. It is through her, that Kēhaulani inherited her family’s generations-old lineage and practices of Kaua‘i hula traditions.

Kaua‘i Community Radio is a volunteer-driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and depends on the kōkua, or support, of listeners like you to stay on the air.  KKCR  is a gift paid forward by over 25 years of radically generous members and volunteers. If you’ve been listening for a while, but haven’t gotten around to donating yet, you can give the gift of great radio this holiday season by clicking “Pay It Forward.” Your one-time donation of only $10 stays on Kaua‘i and fosters meaningful connections in our community. Most importantly, your support keeps KKCR on the air – free to enjoy by the next new listener who hasn’t discovered the joy of giving back to KKCR. Kuleana has many meanings: responsibility, privilege, jurisdiction, interest, ownership, to name a few. Supporting this community resource is all of our kuleana, so pay it forward today. Mahalo nui loa for your kōkua.

Updating KKCR’s Strategic Plan will help us develop the right goals and targets for KKCR and help keep everyone’s efforts focused on meeting them.

As stated by Jerry Brocklehurst in the current Strategic Plan: “By joining together, we can all help the station become what it wants to be and what the community needs it to be – a forum for overlooked, suppressed, and under-represented voices, issues and music, free from the control of commercial and political interests, that reflects the broad, rich spectrum of Kaua‘i’s unique community and promotes the creative, cultural, and political vitality of the community… a station that also preserves, perpetuates, and celebrates Hawaiian culture and that stimulates, educates, and entertains its audience and provides relevant, accurate, and timely information throughout beautiful days on Kaua‘i as well as in times of crisis.” Click here to view the current Strategic Plan.

We want your input. Please complete the Strategic Plan Survey:

Mahalo for your participation in shaping KKCR’s future!
