As you’re probably aware, the US Air Force has behaved shamefully in initiating a proposal – without contacting any branch of government in Grant County, or its citizens / residents, or any local media – which could result in 10,000 F-16 combat training flights per year over Grant County, including The Gila National Forest, Gila & Aldo Leopold Wilderness Areas, and public and private lands and residences.

This is what democracy looks like!

Gila / Mimbres Community Radio & KURU 89.1 FM present the recent meeting and rally that occurred on Thursday 8 March 2018 at the Grant County Convention Center.  Please visit these links for additional info, broadcast schedules, and podcasts.

We are delighted with the progress of, and interest in, Frontier Justice with host Judge Tim Aldrich and the return of frequent guest, Mayor Tim Ladner, and the addition of frequent guest Officer Click of the SC Police Department.

Likewise, we welcome back Lynda Aiman-Smith to take the reins on Local Flavor every Thursday from 8-10am and will look forward to Raul Turrieta‘s return when the loooooong election season concludes in November.

Am I forgetting anything? …  Oh, yeah!


As they say, if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu!

We also encourage you to tune in Fridays at noon for Today’s Healthy Community with Rebekka Van Ness and we’re delighted with the addition of Kevin Bixby & Southwest Environmental Center as production partners with the Earth Matters team of GRIP, UGWA and NM Wild. If that’s not enough, Earth Matters is now broadcast on KTAL-LP 101.5 FM in Las Cruces, NM.  A 1st!

We also wish to welcome Nan Franzblau as our newest DJ presenting Ramblin’ Radio Revival on Thursday afternoons from 2 – 4pm featuring wise & wonderful selections from our Americana, pop, folk and world beat libraries.  Plus some other stuff!

As we proceed in our 5th year of FM broadcast, we are developing some very exciting strategies and plans for the future and look forward to sharing some of that at our

Spring Pledge Drive
Thursday, Friday & Saturday
