About Radio Phoenix
Who We Are
Radio Phoenix™ is central Arizona’s community radio station. We are a program of Desert Soul Media, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, which provides trauma-informed multimedia literacy and technical training programs. Originally launched in 2008 as a community podcast service by the Arizona Community Media Foundation (AzCMF), we program an eclectic format consisting of news, public affairs and adult album alternative (AAA) music programming during the day, along with specialty music, talk, and cultural programming at night and on weekends. The station produces, co-produces and/or syndicates the national radio programs Boom Goddess Radio, Full Moon Hacksaw, HipRawk Nation, Mark My Words Sports Show, My World of Music, and Soul Deluxe.
What We Do
We bring the World to Phoenix, and Phoenix to the World™
We enrich our community with a diversity of ideas, information, cultural traditions and music genres not usually heard on the radio dial in Phoenix. In addition to our radio service, we teach the history of radio broadcasting, train hosts and producers how to create radio programming, as well as provide opportunities for our community to engage and hear its many unique voices.
Radio Phoenix™ exists to enrich the lives of central Arizonans through educational, insightful and stimulating programming that reflects the unique character of the Valley of the Sun while connecting us with our neighbors in the larger global community.
The programming department at Radio Phoenix™ exists to facilitate the acquisition and development of quality, innovative content that furthers the station’s mission.
To that end, we seek programs that:
• Document the unique history and cultural heritage of central Arizona;
• Increase public access to progressive ideas, viewpoints and issues;
• Respect the rich diversity of our local and global community;
• Provide news coverage of underrepresented groups;
• Showcase work by local and independent artists, musicians and other creative personalities; and
• Encourage the educational, artistic and experimental uses of radio.
