Our transmitter has to be powered-down for safety reasons. It could be powered-down anytime after 0930. The project is not expected to take all day. You can listen online here or click the Listen Live button at the top of the webpage.

A favorite saying among those of us who work in public radio is, "The only thing constant in public radio is change." this will become apparent on July 1 when KCCU unveils its new programing lineup. Also, due to cost restraints, KCCU will be taking HD2 off-the-air.
