Classical music on KCME is an oasis of beauty and sanity. As a cultural hub, KCME elevates the arts in southern Colorado. Since 1979, KCME has been the leading source of great classical music and cultural programming. We support and partner with so many of the community assets that make the Pikes Peak Region a great place to live. Classical music’s deep values, universal truths, and transcendent beauty help us maintain perspective and focus in our hectic world.
As listener-supported public radio, KCME 88.7 FM relies on a steady stream of financial support from the very people who love it.
We have lots of ways for you to listen to classical music. Stream live through our KCME app.
Jazz 93.5 FM is operated by the same people that bring you the quality music you have loved for years on its sister-station, KCME, which, in short, means overhead is minimal. Operating revenues are derived from community-minded businesses in our area, grant solicitations, and membership drives, which provide the lion’s share of support for the station. As independent radio station operators, we are proud to serve listeners in Colorado Springs and welcome your moral and financial support.
KCME is your local, classical station with a strong historical presence in your community – we live and work alongside you, our loyal listeners. As we celebrate 40 years on-air bringing you the beautiful music you love, we are grateful to the generations who have supported us – and we couldn’t have achieved this four-decade milestone without you. Thank you for your faithful support.
On Monday, March 16th, we had planned to host our Spring Membership drive, a time when we share with our listeners how they can join us in our mission to be the trusted source to provide quality music and arts content for the people of Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado. We remain dedicated to a vital cultural community by sharing the artistic voices of Colorado Springs and the world, through broadcasting, digital platforms and community engagement. As we continue to serve you and our vibrant community, we will postpone our Spring Membership drive in favor of providing our regular programming which we understand to be an “oasis of serenity” to so many every day, but especially right now. Our wish is to be there for you and our community during this difficult and uncertain time.
We know that many of you will miss hearing the special on-air guests that we feature during the drive, as well as the opportunities to make a personal visit to the station. This is just a postponement, not a cancellation, and we will let you know when we are able to reschedule our Spring Membership Drive.
In the meantime, continue to listen to the music you love. Shared experiences are fundamental to the arts sector, and we look forward to better times ahead.
