Background

About KRDP Indie

Our Mission

KRDP Indie enriches central Arizonans through educational, insightful, stimulating and trauma-informed programming reflecting the unique character of the Valley of the Sun while connecting us with our neighbors in the larger global community. In short, we bring the World to Phoenix and Phoenix to the World. KRDP Indie is where the Valley comes to Talk. Sing. Connect.

Who We Are and What We Do

KRDP Indie is a digital/online-only community radio station serving the Phoenix, Arizona metro area. Our programming focuses on adult album alternative (AAA) music mixed with news, public affairs, and specialty programming from diverse groups including Black, Indigenous, and persons of color (BIPOC); Latinx; and women producers designed to engage listeners with independent music, arts and culture.

Since our launch in 2008, we have worked to enrich our community with a diversity of ideas, information, cultural traditions and music genres not usually heard on the radio dial in Phoenix. In addition to our radio service, we teach the history of radio broadcasting, train hosts and producers how to create radio programming, as well as provide opportunities for our community to engage and hear its many unique voices.

KRDP Indie is operated along with our sister station KRDP Jazz 90.7FM by Desert Soul Media, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, which provides trauma-informed multimedia literacy and technical training programs. Collectively, KRDP Indie and KRDP Jazz 90.7 FM are known as KRDP Community Radio.

Our Programming Philosophy

KRDP Indie’s programming philosophy focuses on the acquisition and development of quality, innovative content that furthers the station’s mission.

To that end, we seek programs that:

• Document the unique history and cultural heritage of Arizona and the Southwest;
• Increase public access to progressive ideas, viewpoints and issues;
• Respect the rich diversity of our local and global community;
• Provide news coverage of underrepresented groups;
• Showcase work by independent artists, musicians and other creative personalities; and
• Encourage the educational, artistic and experimental uses of radio.

If you live in the Phoenix metro area or central Arizona, and are interested in becoming a volunteer host, feel free to sign up for one of our upcoming new volunteer orientations.
