KKCR (90.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Variety format including Hawaiian, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Reggae, Classical and World artists as well as locally produced talk programs. Licensed to Hanalei, Hawaii, USA, the station serves the island of Kauai. The station is currently owned by Kekahu Foundation, Inc.
KKCR also broadcasts on radio station KAQA 91.9 MHz for southern Kauai, KAQA's FM booster KAQA-FM1 on 91.9 MHz in Kilauea, Hawaii and 92.7 MHz via translator K224CQ in Anahola, Hawaii, as well on 95.1 MHz on Oceanic Time Warner cable radio.
The idea for KKCR originated after Hurricane Iniki devastated the Island on September 11, 1992. Janet Friend, Roy Richardson, Richard Fernandez, Jon and Lorraine Scott, and other Island residents decided to start a north shore radio station that would serve Island residents, withstand extreme weather conditions and provide emergency information to isolated residents. The station provides one of the primary Emergency Alert System signals on Kauai.
