Radio Kansas in Digital Fidelity - Worldwide!

 

TECHNICAL NOTE: A hard server crash has taken down our streaming server. See our home page for a link to a temporary alternate server for our main signal. Our extra channels are still available to most listeners via over-the-air HD Radio. Our server may be restored at any time, so we are leaving the buttons below for your convenience.


We normally to present our full-service FM signal, our folk music channel, NewGrass Valley, our contemporary instrumental channel The Breeze and Radio Kansas Jazz via internet streaming! 

These streams are intended as a bonus to your Radio Kansas membership for our FM stations. They cannot be considered our primary service to you because we cannot warrant the quality of your experience as we can with over-the-air broadcast. There are dozens of ways you may most wish to listen online, and each of these may have different technical requirements. Listeners simply have not donated enough toward these streams for us to be able to support every interface and voice-controlled device. Most listeners report success and appreciate the attempt, at least, at extra service.

Everyone is welcome to listen prior to contributing, but our streams are intended as additional service to our members. If you like what you hear, please consider helping us present the stations you use!

 

If you have not yet installed an extension to play back our streams, see the Technical Assistance section below.

Technical Assistance

 

Unlike FM, there are numerous third parties between you and our web signal - web servers that are maintained by others, and may have issues we cannot control. Please contact us if you have a problem, but understand that there are many issues we simply do not have the resources to solve. We derive no real additional income from these offerings, so the systems rely on freeware and dated hardware. There are listeners so disappointed in outages that they seem to prefer we not even try to bring you access to this extraordinary material. We hope you agree that it's worth the attempt, even without a budget! We do try to warrant the accessiblity of at least our main signal in the NPR News smartphone app, the iHeart app, and on the Radio Kansas Mobile App Page at www.radiokansas.com/app Other stream aggregators like TuneIn do not derive funds from linking to our signals, so they lack the resources to worry whether a little station in the midwest is working in their vast system.

If you have questions, please contact by email station manager Ken Baker or for technical questions, Ric Jung. To speak with us by phone, we're available during business hours at 800-723-4657.
