KMHD'S future site.
KMHD features music 55 minutes each and every hour.
Our CD library contains 6000 titles and is being added to all of the time.
We have been on the air since 1984 broadcasting jazz that ranges across the spectrum to include traditional or dixieland to fusions of all sorts. Fountain to Metheny, our volunteers bring their passion for the music to you 24 hours a day.
Drag this picture to your computer, make it your desktop photo and turn it into your own private radio studio. (If you like a 1.5MB copy, email me and I'll be happy to send it to you).
My name is Shawn Kirkeby, and in the summer of 1984, I heard a call on the airwaves of a fledgling radio station on the campus of Mount Hood Community College for volunteers. I had some time and took them up on it. After meeting the station manager Kirk Wille, he handed me a manual for operation of round dial pots or volume controls and the mixing board generally, pointed to the studio and said, "practice".
We have progressed technologically and the music genre continues to grow. There are only a handfull of jazz radio stations broadcasting. KMHD is unique in its connection to a vibrant jazz community that entertains, innovates. and teaches.
Consider lending your financial support to this rare aggregation of talents at any level you feel comfortable. While visiting or calling KMHD, look into the premiums that come with your membership.
