Alternative Radio - Alternative Radio, established in 1986, is a weekly one-hour public affairs program offered free to all public radio stations in the US, Canada, Europe and beyond. AR provides information, analyses and views that are frequently ignored or distorted in other media.

Radio EcoShock - Latest science, authors, issues - from climate change, oceans, forests, pollution, Peak Oil, the economy, and peace. Alex Smith is the host of the syndicated weekly show and is in his seventh year on the air as of 2012. Previously, Smith was a researcher for global environment group, print journalist, homesteader, world-traveler, and private investigator.

Democracy Now! - Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides our audience with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S. corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts.

The Fresh Show- The Fresh Show is exactly what it sounds like- a fresh, new look on our world. DJ Badu comes live to you every week to start with his own "ignorance" on subjects and work outward. Currently he is exploring the continent of Africa country by country and breaking the stigmas and the stereotypes with positive stories and popular music. 

Sky and Cosmos- In Embudo Valley, we are lucky to have one of the more pristine star gazing arenas- crisp desert air domed by lights of celestial masses far, far away. Spend a half hour each Sunday afternoon listening to DJ Lee Mesibov use his vast knowledge to describe of the nighttime skies for the week. You can also catch him at star gazing parties around Dixon about once a month!

Soothing Sounds - DJ Susan Lewis from Pilar fills the radio waves with gentle sounds that nourish the listener within along with inspirational words interspersed throughout the hour. Listen for Gregorian Chants, Native American flute music, Sanskrit music, and angelic sounds.

Jami's Scratchy Record Hour - Nope. Don't tune your dial. What you hear are the dust and grooves of history during "Jami's Scratchy Record Hour". DJ Jami, from way down the 2nd Arroyo, spins his vintage collection of records while sprinkling in bits of facts and lore between sets. Kinda like the ham hocks floating in a musical stew. And it don't get betta' than that!

Oddio- Jami brings us another hour of an eclectic mix of outsider music, world music, found sound, and unclassifiable ear candy. If you Google "oddio" it also means "Oh my god" in Italian, which seems strangely appropos. 

The Irie Show- DJ Josh Johnson brings us the funk and groove of dub and reggae music from around the world. Skank step to the beat every week.

The Four Directions Broadcast- Through the lens of the four directions- earth, wind, fire, and water, - DJs Melanie Kirby, Rob Heyduck, and Adrienne Rosenberg strive to explore the many paths and traditions unique to Southwestern agriculture. We honor the teachers, human and non, who broadcast their seeds of wisdom for the future of farming and our community. Each show consists of thoughtful interviews with home grown experts, global news, a local events calendar, readings from the farmer's Almanac, music, poetry, and more! 

Arcenio el Norteño Show – A weekend favorite, Dixon’s own Archie plays music from Northern New Mexico and other surrounding regions that gives each Saturday a kick of local spice and rhythm. Viva Norteno!

DJ Lee's Show- Hailing from the heart of Dixon, DJ Lee (a.k.a. Joseph Estrada) is our youngest addition to the station. DJ Lee self describes his repertoire as "other music" and "Not Country. Not Hispanic." We would say that his collection includes beats from across the charts (Dance, Pop, R and B, Rap). Don't be embarrassed if you find yourself dancing.

Soul Show- Gotta fever? An itch for something you can't quite scratch? Well then, the DJ Soul Doctor, aka Winston Woods, is in!!  As your rhythm chiropractor, Soul Doctor prescribes the following for your body's aches and pains - Rhythm and Blues, Blues, Soul, Rock and Roll, Ethnic, Pop, and other musical elixirs to alleviate your ailments.

The Rhodes Show- They're back! Which can only mean one thing for Mary and Nelson Rhodes- even more music than before. Ever popular "The Rhodes Show" is an unexpected mix of all types of music from all eras. So hold on to your fedora,  you never know what's around the next audio corner.

Community PSAs - Everyday, twice a day, KLDK brings you community PSAs. During these minutes, you can find out what’s going on around the valley. If you would like to submit a PSA to air on the radio, please contact Chuck Wright . (Weekdays 9 am and 6 pm; Weekends 9 am and 5 pm)



****All other times during the week, KLDK brings you a host of music from most efficient and diverse DJ at the station- DJ Computer Hard Drive (DJ Drive for short).
