Our slogan 'Visionary Radio,' means forward-thinking, progressive, and futuristic content. We are committed to broadcasting the highest quality in music and talk radio with a bold, fearless, and visionary attitude.
We seek to provide quality, alternative programming for the Tucson 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.
In as much 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.

Think globally, listen locally with Community Supported Radio. KVAN is committed to building an extended, global community.
In 1977, TaliasVan founded Global Change Media (then known as Gabriel Records) and used music and concerts to educate and share higher-consciousness messages with college students, the disenfranchised, and the Tucson homeless.
Today Global Change Media, headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, has grown to include the talent and support of spiritually-minded and socially-concerned people from around the world.
In addition to his role as Executive Director of Global Change Media, TaliasVan is also a spiritual leader and teacher, and is an internationally known and celebrated musician who performs his own avant-garde CosmoPop® Music under the name of TaliasVan. He also founded the Global Change Music nonprofit record label, which presents a portfolio of artists who not only speak, but actually live, a message for global change.
In order to serve progressive, talented musicians who are not being heard or broadcast, TaliasVan organized the nonprofit Musicians-That-Need-to-be-Heard Network. KVAN supports this network of committed and deserving musicians who are excluded from, or choose not to participate in, the corporate-run music industry, thus providing our audience a fresh, new alternative to today's mainstream radio offerings. KVAN brings the universal language of music to the air-waves with a specially curated collection of artists who have a message of positive global change!
