Seattle Area African Music Radio Programs

African pop music has had a home on Seattle non-commercial radio since the 1970s. Although not devoted to solely to African music, KRAB-FM was the early pioneer having several shows touching on African themes, including music. In June, 1984, Jon Kertzer started one of the first feature programs of African music in the US with his three hour weekly show, The Best Ambiance, on KCMU. The program ran continuously on KCMU and KCMU's successor, KEXP up to May 16, 2011. Jon decided to leave Seattle to become the Director of the Univerisity of Alberta's folkwaysAlive! and KEXP decided to end the show. That leaves KBCS's Music of Africa as the only locally produced African music program heard in the Puget Sound region.
