At around 11am Sunday morning November 9th, 2014 the station experienced a problem at our tower site on San Antonio Mountain. We are still streaming our shows on www.krza.org but our radio feed is temporarily down until we can figure out the problem.

At 8:30am on November 10th we sent someone to take a look at the site to access the problem. We are hoping to be back up very soon and we want to thank you all for your patience in this temporary outage.

Also many thanks to Bittersweet Highway (Wayne McKenzie and Rene Janiece), all of the local musicians who performed, and the SLV Brewing Company for putting on our KRZA Benefest North on Sunday September 28th.
