The mission of KDHX is to build community through media, with diverse and independent voices that enrich the perspectives of our audiences. We promote civic and cultural participation by providing the tools, technology, and training vital to informed, creative expression.
In St. Louis, we are lucky to possess a richly vibrant arts scene, including excellent theaters, great music venues, galleries, and more. Since 1987, KDHX had been a unifying and supportive thread in this cultural fabric. 88.1FM is the frequency through which many St. Louisans receive exposure to exciting new bands, upcoming local events, and community-building opportunities. What is extremely unique about the connection that KDHX has to the city is that it is entirely independent and locally managed (few cities around the country, including larger metropolises, have a resource like this, unconnected to religious or educational organizations).
KDHX is currently embarked upon an unprecedented expansion of its facilities in acquiring and remodeling a downtown building to become the Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media and the Station’s future headquarters. This structure, located in Grand Center, will be home to a cafe, a music venue, and a recording studio, as well as, broadcasting booths and offices for KDHX’s excellent staff. The Capital Campaign for this exciting transition is in full effect; find ways to show your support here.
On Saturday, November 3, 2012, KDHX’s Executive Director, Beverly Hacker, generously gave Photo Flood Saint Louis a personal tour through the new building, which is currently under construction. This unique opportunity represents the first of our new Mini-Floods, site-specific versions of our larger Photo Floods. Special thanks to Beverly and all of those at KDHX for providing this great chance to document an important new addition to St. Louis.
