KKCR is Kauaʻi’s independent, non-commercial, listener-supported community radio station.
KKCR seeks to:

  • Stimulate, educate and entertain our audience
  • Preserve, perpetuate and celebrate Hawaiian culture
  • Reflect the diversity of the local and world community

KKCR provides a forum for overlooked, suppressed, or under-represented voices and music. The Kekahu Foundation facilitates this broadcasting opportunity.
