In October of 2007, North Curry Families' and Children's Center applied for a license from the Federal Communications Commission for a full-power non-commercial FM radio station. In June of 2010, they received an FCC Construction Permit for 88.1 FM. The call letters are KPOZ. We now have until June of 2013 to build a station and begin broadcasting.

Community radio is media for the people and by the people. We hope to build a vibrant organization that provides quality programming which our community can use and enjoy. We will give voice to the interesting and positive things that are happening in our listening area, from Humbug Mountain to the mouth of the Coquille. We will strive to add reliable information and respectful dialogue to the issues that confront us all. Local musicians and inspired dj's will share their musical talent and knowledge. We have planned to include students as an integral part of the radio day. We imagine shows that meet many community needs, from 'Scroungarama', the show that helps us all re-use and recycle, to announcements that help us find health care, child care, and transportation resources, to spoken word shows that entertain and encourage literacy.

This is just the beginning vision. We welcome your ideas, creativity, and committed participation.
