Anchorage is such a diverse and wonderful place. We're super stoked to bring more of these community voices onto the airwaves. We've added some dope new shows to the lineup...
Constant Community (Mondays 5pm - 6pm)
We've also picked up quite a few new music shows. See the entire program schedule HERE. Email us know if you'd like to host a show -- email@example.com.
Interest in local, community-focused radio continues to grow! KONR-LP was recently featured on the FRONT PAGE of Alaska's biggest newspaper.

A few weeks before this, we also had a killer feature in the Anchorage Press.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who have stepped up and generously dedicated time to putting together radio shows. Let's keep the weird going!
This town is incredible. At times, it can seem like Anchorage is overrun with shootings, stabbings and any myriad of nefarious garbage. But when things get bad, we look out for one another. We want to thank everyone - volunteers & listeners - who came out in support on KONR after our studio was burglarized. Thieves stole our computers, record player and mixer, but we were back on the air (with donated gear) in a matter of hours! We also want to give a huge thanks to Steve over at Obsession Records. He saw our Facebook post and offered to donate a brand new record player to KONR. Thanks, Steve! KONR-LP lives, thanks to this incredible community!

"In the twilight hours between Thanksgiving and Black Friday, a small group of people braved the chilly night air to gather at a seemingly inconspicuous 4th Avenue alleyway in the Sunshine Plaza. Behind closed doors, Cameron Willingham and his sister Katura greeted their frozen guests with warm embraces before darting off to find auxiliary cables in the nooks of the building’s dimly lit rooms..."

As you've likely heard by now, some bastards broke into our studio and made off with 2 computers, a turntable, 2 mixers, a battery backup, $5 from the donation jar and ALL of our pens. We're not the kind to wish ill will upon any of our fellow men or women, but these clowns need a serious adjustment.
Thankfully, we have some awesome volunteers who spent their entire Saturday rebuilding an on-air computer to get the station back on the air. The cats at Beats Messiah even threw an impromptu party and raised enough money to replace some of the gear.
At this point, we're still without a turntable. We're also planning a YUGE fundraise in January, so keep your ears on. Much love and many thanks to all of our rad volunteers and listeners who have come forth to help keep KONR alive!
