Asheville FM delivers a freeform listening experience that entertains and educates, expands cultural understanding, celebrates underrepresented voices, pushes boundaries, connects us to an Asheville perspective beyond our own personal experience or identity, and inspires you to want to learn more about what you’re hearing.
The music department encourages diversity & equity with a unique mélange of well-researched music not heard on mainstream radio. Our DJs are dedicated to unearthing musical gems of the past and present. Inspired by local artists, bands, music stores, and venues; Asheville FM is driven to give our musical culture and community a more prominent voice in the world via our radio airwaves and online.
The news department strives to highlight and amplify the voices and interests of the people of Asheville. We are committed to keeping Asheville residents updated on local politics and current events across the city, the state of North Carolina, and beyond while centering marginalized voices and youth.
