KDHX and the Folk School are known for being plugged in to the best music in town. As a result, we have connections with the best independent musicians and artists in the city, and we are often asked to help book bands, DJs, or emcees for a variety of events, different in scope, aesthetic, and atmosphere.

Booking services are available depending on a variety of factors, including budget and staff availability. KDHX is committed to paying independent musicians and artists a fair rate in exchange for their talent and helping make your event a success.

If you're interested in having KDHX and/or the Folk School curate music for your event, fill out our Media Sponsorship Application. We're sure we can find just the right sound for your event!

KDHX is not your typical radio station and The Stage is not your typical venue. Our intention is to provide a space for creative events that might not otherwise be able to find a home. We’re looking to book shows that have something a little different, that are a little risky and might be hard to pull off in other spaces. We especially like collaborative efforts and outside of the box thinking.

If you are a local musician looking to do something a little different or have a big milestone to celebrate like an album or video release, contact us. We might be able to work something out.

If you are a touring musician, spins on 88.1 KDHX is the best way to get booked at The Stage. Please remit recent releases to KDHX Music Department, 3524 Washington Blvd, Saint Louis, MO 63103.

Underwriting announcements are brief, factual descriptions of goods or services. Underwriting announcements are aired in exchange for monetary support of a particular KDHX program or the station as a whole.  

As a non-commercial, non-profit station we depend on underwriting, and our underwriters can count on us to deliver an effective message to our loyal and intelligent listeners. Underwriting with KDHX is a great way to tell an attentive audience about your good or service. Underwriting announcements can be up to 30 seconds long.

In addition to on-air announcements, we also offer web banners of various sizes on our website KDHX.org.

Underwriting language is restricted by FCC regulation, but our underwriting executive can help you script announcements that are effective in delivering your message.

Our music department processes music into the new release section of our music library and informs DJs of new releases weekly by email. KDHX DJs are not required to play station music and we are considered a free-format station, so we have no set rotation or playlist. If the DJ likes it and it fits the format of the show, they will play it.
