You can specify the amount you would like to give each month (minimum $10) and the day of the month you would like the gift deducted. We accept Visa, MC, AMEX and Discover for monthly gift payments.

Every show on the station may broadcast on the same frequency, but each DJ is tuned a little differently, curating shows from a vast multitude of new releases and reissues, in addition to drawing from the tried and true albums of years past. (To see what new releases have brought together many of us, check out our Top Album Spins.) As a community, KDHX DJs help open the airwaves to artists that otherwise may not find a place in the singles-rotations that dominate the top of the dial. So while the first half of 2016 has seen the passing of beloved greats, whose influences will continue to change music for decades to come, the year so far has also seen the emergence of greats in the making -- much needed reminders of the breadth of talent beyond major labels and even beyond labels themselves, among artists whose self-releases alone have accomplished more than even some of the best financed album tours. Few stations match KDHX in the diversity of taste indicated by the lists below, these from only a fraction of our shows.
