Ken Baker Ken Baker
General Manager

I'm a lifelong Kansan and a lifelong fan of public broadcasting. I found Radio Kansas not long after the first station went on the air in 1979. I remember fondly many of the station's early efforts, and get misty if I hear a piece of music that was used as a theme song for one of those shows.

It's been my pleasure to see Radio Kansas grow into a regional public service. If you listen much at all, you're probably like me and couldn't imagine life around here without In addition tothat great mix, we now offer a 24 hour per dayclassical music channel on our all-digitalHD2 channel. When you buy a new radio, look for the official HD Radio logo.That means the radio incorporates the new technology that will allow you to hear our extra channel.

One of my greatest pleasures is recording local concerts for broadcast. Like a lot of folks, I played an instrument in school but didn't keep it up. I'm glad to make my musical contribution to the community by recording a few events each year and producing those recordings for broadcast. Our relationship with the Wichita Symphony has been particularly rewarding, and it's a pleasure to help bring those concerts to the air.

As General Manager I try to help announcers and program producers make decisions from your perspective as a listener. We hope that helps you choose this station more frequently, and rewards you for sticking around once you're here. If there are particular shows we now air that you just couldn't live without, I hope you'll drop me a line to let me know how important they are. Likewise, if there's something you'd like to hear that we don't presently offer, please let me know. E-mail me at kbaker@radiokansas.org.
