A new voice of community radio is emerging from the streets of downtown Tucson. KVAN is a new nonprofit, volunteer Low Power FM (LPFM) radio station, soon to be broadcasting in the Tucson area on 91.7 FM.
The FCC has recently made LPFM licenses more available explicitly to combat the “homogenization” of commercial radio conglomerates. This gives us and hundreds of other LPFM radio stations around the country the opportunity to change the way that radio is made and heard. In addition to the LPFM terrestrial broadcast from our studio at 330 E 7th Street in Tucson, KVAN will be accessible world-wide via our stream at kvan.fm.
We seek to provide quality, alternative programming for Tucson and the surrounding community, knowing that ultimately our community extends beyond the reach of our terrestrial broadcast signal. We acknowledge the global community at large and uphold our listeners as unique members of one planetary family.
Inasmuch as it is our responsibility to provide an outlet for alternative voices of the world, we also feel responsible to provide the highest quality programming, featuring conscious music and enlightened conversation. Radio is media's best kept secret for global change. Because it has the ability, quite literally, to make waves in our world, we feel responsible to broadcast sounds that reflect truth, beauty, goodness, and love.
Broadcasting soon at 91.7 FM from their studios at the Sea of Glass — Center for the Arts in downtown Tucson and online at kvan.fm
