This is the official app of KFJC 89.7, broadcasting 24/7 from Foothill College in the San Francisco Bay Area.
KFJC is homebrewed freeform radio fortified weekly with new sound and forgotten music injections. Each DJ brings their own sonic experience, segue-way philosophy and unique record-bag of tricks.
Everything played or not played, said or not said is fully manifested by the on-air jocks. No hype, no industry games, no product - just an eternal hunt for the inspired, creative, rare and free.
KFJC's mission in life, as much as we can agree on such a thing, is to be a conduit for new and interesting audio art and information, especially the sorts that are unavailable elsewhere. Our music programming is largely oriented to recent material. Most programs must play at least 35% (by song count) tracks from material added in the last 8 weeks. We strive to carry the best of many styles of music and relevant public affairs programming.
We kept the app simple. You choose between a 32k mono or 128k stereo feed then you listen to it. The artist and track name are displayed for the musically inquisitive.
