TEAM UP WITH A WINNER
KRUU-LP 100.1 FM Cosponsor Partnerships
Bring a little sunshine to your next event by partnering with KRUU-FM, Fairfield's grassroots, community radio station, home of the first solar-powered radio station in the Midwest. Broadcasting to the greater Fairfield area at 100.1 FM, KRUU also streams on the worldwide web at kruufm.com with well over 30,000 page visits a month.
Event planners, community nonprofits, and cultural hapsters, here's your opportunity to 'Join the KRUU' and team up with a proven winner, a business on the "forefront of sustainability," according to Iowa Governor Chet Culver. "A symbol for Iowa's vision of renewable energy..." "KRUU-LP is contributing to a greener, safer Iowa."
Mayor Ed Malloy called KRUU's solar power installation last September the first demonstration project of Fairfield's Go Green initiative. "In three short years," he said, "KRUU has surely gained that reputation as being a great voice for all the great community elements, for all the great information being imparted by our community, providing a home and tremendous activity for talent and creativity for all the people who express it through music, through words, through ideas and passions, and just plain fun."
Event cosponsor partners have included FMC (Woodstock!, Motown R&B, and Heart of Country concerts), First Fridays Art Walks (All Things Italian, Bark in the Park, Party in the Park), Farmers Market, David Lynch Foundation events (Beach Boys, Moby, Father Gabriel documentary), Iowa Renewable Energy Association, Center on Sustainable Communities, WOB productions, MUM Eco Fairs, FACC events, Cypress Villages 4th of July fireworks celebrations, MUM Sustainable Living Department events, Vintage Power Wagon Rally, and more.

If a performer comes to town, hosts often feature the artist's music or relate their own personal stories, as a matter of course. Interviews are set up which you can help facilitate by getting in touch with us. A number of KRUU shows report events such as AROUND TOWN, OFF THE SUBJECT, LYRICAL VENUS, CLASSICAL HOUR, AMERICAN STEW, LOCAL YOKELS, and PLANET ERSTWILD, to name a few.
