KBMF-LP 102.5, “America’s Most Radio,” is a noncommercial, low-power community radio station that broadcasts from a transmitter atop the historic Carpenters’ Union Hall in Butte, Montana. Airing 24/7, KBMF boasts 60+ diverse free-form music programs all presented by volunteer, citizen Deejays; robust news reporting by our staff and trusted partners; and compelling original stories, among them documentaries, interviews, and local oral histories. Additionally, KBMF produces a spectrum of live events: concerts, political debates, educational lectures, radio plays and more.

Ever since our launch on Miners’ Union Day, June 13, 2015, KBMF and our FCC licensee, Butte America Foundation (BAmF) have worked to provide our ever-growing community of listeners with programming and events that entertain, engage, enrich and educate. Regular topics include social justice, environmental action, labor history and historic preservation, along with inspiring examples of local and global community building. We partnered with Nongoma-FM 88.3, a Zulu community radio station in South Africa and have both sent a delegation to Nongoma and received members of their station here in Butte. KBMF and BAmF are also involved in many charitable efforts including a project that helped bring safe drinking water to Adukrom-Axim, Ghana and a drive that raised funds for medical supplies in Ukraine . KBMF staffers traveled three times to the Standing Rock Reservation to cover the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline in 2016 and 2017. More recently, we are building a rural radio network that encourages mutual aid, shared resources and cross-promotion among community stations in our region, several of which are on Native American reservations.
