Helping KFAI help itself (con’t)

As I noted in December, KFAI-FM is battling a listenership drop and is trying to figure out how to serve its 473 constituencies (estimated). The non-MPR public radio station is conducting a short online survey of listeners and non-listeners here, and it would be a big help to the little guys if you take it.

The survey seems focused on the public-radio sphere and what sort of programming (music versus news and information) you want at various times of the day. Filling it out is less costly and intrusive than a pledge drive.

    Thank you for posting this plug for KFAI. The station is fiercely independent, accessible in multiple formats, a bit quixotic — and an essential alternative for its many distinct listener audiences. The survey is simple and quick. Well worth the minimal effort it takes.

    Remember WCAL? Gone. KFAI deserves the support and needs the responses to the survey. I wish the survey had been better designed so I could have said that the spoken word programs in any language are less relevant in the internet age, and that the news format is too shrill.

    Thank you David for the help. The feedback is critical to shaping how the station will address listener wants and needs. KFAI is a Twin Cities treasure as far as I’m concerned and I agree with William and Mary and their sentiments.
