At noon on Sunday, December 15, 2013, tune in for a historic milestone in KDHX history as we switch broadcasting signals from our Magnolia Avenue studio to our new home at the Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media, located at 3524 Washington Avenue in Grand Center.

After years of planning, hard work from our volunteers, and support from listeners like you, the big signal switchover has finally arrived.

The final show to broadcast from the Magnolia Avenue studios will be "Songwriters Showcase" from 10 a.m. to noon Central, originally hosted by Larry Weir and currently hosted by Ed Becker.

After Ed plays the final song from Magnolia Avenue -- as voted on by the KDHX DJs -- we will air the very first song from our new studios as chosen by our listeners. Listeners can vote for this song online from a list of 11, culled from hundreds of fan nominations.

Immediately following the first song, Walter and Willa Volz will kick off a brand new KDHX era at noon with "Bluegrass Breakdown," the first show to be broadcast from the new studios in Grand Center.

From there out, you can then look forward to the same great music, DJs and shows you’ve always loved on 88.1 KDHX, with the added bonus of joining us at the Magnolia Café opening in mid-December, and events at The Stage starting in January. For more information about KDHX, Magnolia Café and The Stage, you can check out this helpful FAQ.

Thanks for listening to and supporting KDHX for over 25 years during this exciting change -- from our humble roots in a radio tower shack; to a memory-filled, retro-fitted bakery on Magnolia Avenue; and now to the kind of place our independent music and arts community deserves at the Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media.
