KRDP (formerly Radio Phoenix) is central Arizona’s community radio station. We are a program of Desert Soul Media, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, which provides trauma-informed multimedia literacy and technical training programs.  Originally launched in 2008 as a community podcast service by the Arizona Community Media Foundation (AzCMF), we program two public radio services - KRDP Jazz (90.7 FM) and KRDP Indie (digital/online).

KRDP Jazz, 90.7 FM in Phoenix’s East Valley, airs a Jazz, Blues, & Soul music format mixed with community news, public affairs, and specialty programming primarily targeting Arizona's African-American community.

KRDP Indie, a digital/online-only community station, offers adult album alternative (AAA) music mixed with news, public affairs, and specialty programming from local, national and international producers designed to engage listeners with independent music, arts and culture.

KRDP produces and/or syndicates the national radio programs Boom Goddess Radio, Full Moon Hacksaw, HipRawk Nation, My World of Music, Soul Deluxe, and The Keep It 1 Million Show.
