What is Asheville FM?

Asheville FM is a volunteer-based, grassroots community radio station brodcasting at 103.3 on the FM dial in Asheville, NC. Created by Friends of Community Radio, a 501(c)3 non-profit entity. The idea for Asheville FM was hatched in early 2009. Radio lovers from Western North Carolina came together to serve pipin’ hot sounds and have fun while doing it.

Our goal is to add to and reflect the rich stew of arts, culture and community involvement that is Asheville. We want to hear music, news, and the unusual all produced right here in our neck of the woods. We want to hear sounds from around the world, discerned and distilled just for us by our neighbors. We want to help make connections between diverse groups and support the local economy of ideas. We believe people from all parts of our community should have a chance to let their voice be heard.

Asheville FM began broadcasting as an internet radio station in September of 2009. In late 2013 we filed for a terrestrial Low Power FM frequency with the Federal Communications Commission, and in March 2014, our application was granted! AshevilleFM is now broadcasting at 103.3 FM from downtown Asheville. Sound Good? It’ll sound even better if you get involved and help us bring this vital local programming to our community!

Our Friendly All-Volunteer Management!
