It was a twenty minute commute to work, and if I wasn't already on the phone with the East coast office I only had to turn up the volume and the radio was already set to our local Christian radio station. You know the jingle. 101.1 KLRC, "The Positive Difference." Well, now there is 99.1 and 90.1, but at that point there was only one frequency.
I’d been a fan of the station since college when I transferred in ‘97 to John Brown University as a married student before my senior year. My minor was in broadcasting and a requirement before graduation was to take my turn as a student DJ for one hour each week. It’s an incredibly hard job sounding genuine and natural over the air!

As a community-supported radio station, I love that God has a place for all us to be part of the Positive Difference.
When you donate, you are helping bring hope in Jesus to listeners like James.
We've all had those moments. The surprise that took your breath away, or that moment your heart needed encouragement the most.

When you are part of KLRC's financial support team, the Positive Difference you make goes into so many places.

It's that critical season where we are asking God to provide the funds needed for KLRC, a community-supported radio station, to stay on-the-air and sharing hope in Christ for another year.
The KLRC Fall Fundraiser is now in the record books and our hearts are full of gratitude. In the past few days, you've responded in an incredible way and we are so very thankful!
It’s been an amazing week filled with special stories of how God is using a small army of people to impact lives throughout Northwest Arkansas, Northeast Oklahoma, and Southwest Missouri! I’m so grateful to each of you who have responded already and am looking forward with great expectation to what God has in store for us on this final day of the KLRC fall fundraiser!
"I used to live at the Salvation Army and was able to save up money so I could get a place to live. When I got there all I had were the clothes on my back. Now I have an apartment of my own. I started listening to KLRC and the music helped me find God and give up drugs and alcohol." –James, Rogers
Often we see homeless people at busy intersections, and we want to do something. I have good news for you – this is your moment to do something!
At KLRC, we’re excited to be partnering with another great organization that makes a positive difference among our community. Established locally in 1896, The Salvation Army has been providing healthy meals 365 days a year. In our listening area, ANYONE in need of food can come to a Salvation Army Kitchen and be fed for free.
