Becoming a KFAI volunteer

Open Volunteer Positions


Vinyl Voices Support Team

You can join our Saturday DJ series as a representative of KFAI. Spend a Saturday afternoon listening to fabulous music, enjoying a couple free beverages and collecting contact information and customer tickets for raffles held during the event.

Front Desk

The Front Desk volunteer is the face and voice of KFAI. Visitors are often relieved to hear a real person answer the phone, and the personal service of welcoming someone to the station cannot be underestimated. This vital job is a great way to learn more about other volunteers and people at KFAI. 

News Readers and Reporters

KFAI has frequent opportunities to get involved in the KFAI News Department, whether as a news reader or reporter.

Music Library

Maintaining the 50,000-some items in KFAI's Music Library is a never-ending task. Whether cataloging or making room for new items, there's always an opportunity for you.


All events that KFAI is involved in need volunteers to staff tables, answer questions, and generally serve as the point persons for Fresh Air Radio. This is a low-pressure, high pay-off way to volunteer for KFAI and get to know our listeners -- and listeners-to-be!

Volunteers at work for KFAI

What do KFAI volunteers do?
Nearly everything! Volunteers produce programming, work in the music library, represent the station at events, participate in committees, create station promos, contribute to the web site, and much more.

How can I get my own show on KFAI?
First, become an active volunteer by attending orientation. Sign up to begin assisting with off-air volunteer roles. You will then have the opportunity to take Board Certification training classes that can help prepare you to become a program host. Once you have completed these basic classes, you will be in a better position to apply for program openings.
