KRDP Community Radio is the public radio program unit of Desert Soul Media, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, which provides trauma-informed multimedia literacy and technical training programs. Under the KRDP brand, two public radio services are operated – KRDP Jazz, and KRDP Indie.
KRDP Jazz, 90.7 FM in Phoenix’s East Valley, airs a Jazz, Blues & Soul music format mixed with community news, public affairs, and specialty programming primarily targeting Arizona’s Black and African-American community. The KRDP Jazz (90.7 FM) signal covers Apache Junction, Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, portions of east Phoenix, Queen Creek, San Tan Village, south Scottsdale, and Tempe. It is the first FM radio station in the Phoenix metro and the state of Arizona that is wholly-owned or controlled by African-Americans since the sale of KMJK (106.9 FM) Phoenix in January 2001.
KRDP Indie (formerly Radio Phoenix) is a digital/online-only station offering adult album alternative (AAA) music mixed with news, public affairs, and specialty programming from diverse groups including Black, Indigenous, and persons of color (BIPOC); Latinx; and women producers designed to engage listeners with independent music, arts and culture.
