Today is a big moment in a very long effort to finally bring substantial investment in Colony Park—a part of town that has been overlooked for far too long. A huge thank you to the community advocates for their commitment to this effort and to city staff for this innovative plan!

Jabari Warfield (left) son of John and Jan Warfield founders of KAZI radio, sends a message to our community. Marion Nickerson on the right.

“It's a birthday celebration like no other. “The Birth of A Station” born 40 years ago and conceptualized many years before in the hearts and minds of my dad, Dr. John Warfield. It feels great to be back in the hallowed halls of KAZI, where many of us got our start.

As the son of the founders, I hope this station and its people touched your life in a positive way, with the discussion of issues affecting our community, and of course the one-of-a-kind music. We raised hip hop, which became a billion-dollar industry. We gave voice to the voiceless, touching on issues here in Austin, and worldwide, and now, we are looking forward to the future.” Jabari Warfield

K.A.Z.I. is KAZI, which means work in Swahili and our work is not done!!!”

Please help us grow into the future by making a donation of your choice at www.kazifm.org
We have our sights set on being the best African American community station in America!

Jabari Warfield son of the KAZI founders shared this with Facebook.

“The Chicago legend has left the building. "Uncle" Ramsey Lewis made his transition earlier today. Ramsey is one of the OG's of jazz piano, having taken his career from the traditional jazz to the contemporary jazz sound while staying relevant.

Fun fact - Ramsey had a drummer in his band who had the vision to form his own supergroup that we would all come to know as Earth Wind and Fire. Maurice White put together the baddest band ever formed, but reached back to Ramsey years later after the success of Earth Wind and Fire to produce Ramsey's classic song Sun Goddess.

Ramsey Lewis played with such a gentle touch, even on uptempo tracks. He earned 5 honorary doctorate degrees, 3 Grammy's and and an NAACP Image Award.

Rest easy, OG, and thank you for all you gave us!!!

Our Story

Austin Community Radio, Inc. operating as KAZI 88.7 is the oldest community station in Austin. The station is a listener-supported, non-commercial community radio station, staffed almost entirely by volunteers who work together out of a sense of commitment and concern for our community. Our mission is to reach and provide educational programming and information with special emphasis on media access for the African-American community and other groups previously unserved by existing radio stations in Austin. KAZI was the dream of the late Dr. John Warfield, professor of African-American Studies at the University of Texas. With generous funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and loaned tower space from LBJ-S Broadcasting, KAZI began transmitting on August 29, 1982. Although KAZI was launched with the aid of public funding, it currently survives entirely on donations from listeners and support from commercial sponsors. The station also receives monies from the City of Austin for the broadcast of the weekly City Council meeting. KAZI remains a strong force in the Austin Community with its unique mix of R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Gospel, Blues, Reggae, Zydeco, Talk, Community Information, Independent News and more… KAZI also takes pride in supporting and promoting local artists as well as national artists on small independent labels. Since 1982, KAZI has been serving Austin and the surrounding communities. The station maintains a family atmosphere with a volunteer staff that loves what they do, which keeps the listening audiences always wanting more.
