Thank you for your interest in learning more about 88.7 KCME-FM. We’re proud to serve communities throughout Central and Southern Colorado, and we are grateful for your support.
88.7 KCME-FM is an independent public radio station that broadcasts classical music twenty-four hours a day. Founded in 1977, KCME’s studios were located in a small house near a babbling brook in Manitou Springs, Colorado. In March of 1993 KCME moved its studios and offices to the present location.
Over the years, KCME has grown to the point where it now broadcasts its signal over a much wider area from its transmitter high atop Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs.
KCME has expanded its services to other communities that have expressed a desire to hear the station, with translators serving:
By satellite transmission, KCME’s signal is heard in mountainous areas that would otherwise be difficult to reach and, in the future, KCME expects to broadcast to additional communities. The added ability to broadcast its signal over the internet means that KCME is now heard literally anywhere in the world.
With its studios now located in Colorado Springs, KCME’s operating revenues are derived from membership drives and from the sale of on-air program sponsorship announcements to community-minded businesses, thus assuring that its support comes from the community it serves.
KCME is a trusted source of quality classical music and arts content for the people of Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado. We are dedicated to a vital cultural community by sharing the artistic voices of Colorado Springs and the world, through broadcasting, digital platforms, and community engagement.
