KAZI started as the dream of University of Texas professor Dr. John Warfield 26 years ago. Austin's oldest community radio station thrives under the guidance of Steve Savage, with a small staff and a team of volunteers who keep jazz, hip-hop, reggae, and gospel music alive and well in the ATX, digging deeper than your average commercial playlist: Where else do Raphael Saadiq, Estelle, Angie Stone, Sam Cooke, A Tribe Called Quest, and Honey Brown share the air? KAZI also keeps us plugged into the real world with independent news via Amy Goodman's Democracy Now!, and it broadcasts Austin City Council meetings, making local goings-on accessible to us all.
