We are a freeform, non-commercial, volunteer-run, listener-supported, Low Power FM, community radio station broadcasting from Madrid, New Mexico, USA. In an historic opportunity for grassroots media, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced in 2013 that it temporarily would open an application-filing window for non-commercial Low Power FM community radio station licenses. Chosen applicants across the country were awarded licenses to construct new radio stations and occupy previously available frequencies along the FM dial. The Madrid Cultural Projects 501(c)(3) was awarded our very own LPFM license in February, 2014. Madrid Community Radio, KMRD 96.9 took its first breath after months with our fingers crossed. Our first ON AIR broadcast was at high noon on June 16, 2015. In late winter 2015, KMRD launched our web stream, sharing our live radio broadcast with the world. In fall of 2016, we launched a project to restore the old wood shop from Madrid’s mining days to become the station’s new home. We moved into our new studio in the summer of 2017, broadcasting from the new building in time for our second birthday.

KMRD is now operated by an independent non-profit organization, with 501(c)(3) status. Just as our community raised the funds to build the station and get KMRD on the air, we continue to be supported by our listeners and local sponsors.
