The big moment we’ve been talking about for years has finally arrived: KDHX is now located in its new home at the Larry J. Weir Center for Independent Media. “Wait, you moved an entire radio station?” you might be saying to yourself. Yes, it’s true. After 25+ years at 3504 Magnolia Avenue, we have moved to 3524 Washington Avenue in the heart of Grand Center. Our new, much larger spot houses the broadcast facilities for 88.1 KDHX, as well as the Magnolia Café and The Stage at KDHX. It will also contain the offices where we run KDHX.org and the Folk School (whose classes take place just down the street at 3323 Washington Avenue). And as we settle into our new digs, we know there are a whole lot of questions on everyone’s mind. Hey, what do you say we try to answer some of them now?
Q: What's the deal with the Magnolia Café? I can’t wait to check it out!
A: We're officially open for business. Come on in through and from and . The café will be serving coffee, pastries, salads, sandwiches, and smoothies. Additionally, the café will also feature beer (including selections from local breweries), wine and liquor, and will be open when there's an event going on at The Stage. The wi-fi is free, so stick around if you have time, or grab one of our to-go lunches.
Q: I’ve got my coffee from the café, and I can’t wait to see The Stage at KDHX. What’s going on there, and when?
A: The Stage at KDHX, also located inside the Larry J. Weir Center, will feature films and concerts, as well as other educational and community events. For the full schedule and details, visit the KDHX events page.
Q: I love listening to 88.1 KDHX. Is the programming I love going to change?
A: Nope. Expect the same great, independent, DJ-driven radio you’ve always enjoyed.
Q: In addition to 88.1 FM, KDHX has an additional HD2 Digital Channel. When will that go on the air?
A: We’re not sure just yet. As soon as we’re all settled in the new place, we’ll start planning.
Q: Where can I park to visit the Magnolia Café or for events at The Stage?
A: There’s adequate café parking on the east side of the Larry J. Weir Center, as well as plenty of surface lots and metered parking in Grand Center.
Q: I can’t wait to see the whole place, when can I take a tour?
A: We are holding another tour on May 10. You must RSVP online in order to take the tour, as space is limited.
Q: What is going to happen to your old home at 3504 Magnolia Avenue?
A: It’s for sale! And we think it would be an awesome space to live or work, or even set up your own music studio. Contact Kyle Pershing at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the details.
