KFAI’s engineering staff is still troubleshooting the cause for the ongoing failure of some of our shows to generate mp3 archives. The problem is sporadic; until an explanation can be nailed down we can expect to intermittently see programs without an mp3 archive. This problem is being actively worked on.

KFAI is a proud sponsor of the 6th Annual FLOW Northside Arts Crawl:http://flownorthside.org/i/flow2011_flyer.pdf, on Saturday, July 30, 2001, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. This free, family oriented event is a unique collaboration between business and arts organizations showcasing artists of all ages.

KFAI’s Chief Engineer cleaned up the sound quality of KFAI’s live stream and archives on Friday, July 1, 2011 and the sound quality has been improved. If you have questions or feedback, please call 612.341.3144 ×23. Thank you!

Thanks to all those who attended Taste of KFAI on Saturday, June 18 at the Ukrainian Event Center.
