Community Radio: A Global Movement

Welcome to KURE-FM LP radio, a work in progress, and soon to be a reality. KURE will be a non-profit community radio station, broadcasting from Desert Rose Baha’i Institute, to serve the communities of Eloy, Casa Grande and Coolidge, Arizona. It will be a “low-power”, community station. Low-powered stations educate and inspire people in rural and urban localities all around the world.


You are invited to participate and contribute to this project.



KURE - K Unity Radio Eloy


The station will broadcast educational information about family issues and community life. 

Programs will cover employment opportunities, activities of community groups, available services, and hands-on training opportunities. Newsworthy events, such as sports and civic meetings, will be broadcast live. Programs will feature the music, theatrical events, poetry and prose of community members.



WHAT IS COMMUNITY RADIO?


Low power FM (LPFM) stations are non-commercial, run by non-profit organizations, schools, community groups, local governments, and churches.  LPFMs operate at 100 Watts and reach a radius of 10 to 30 miles. LPFMs air a diversity of programming including music, news, public affairs, etc.
