Our story

Our story

For more than 70 years, two of America’s top classical radio stations, KUSC and KDFC, have been championing the power of classical music in our local communities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and cities in between, through great music, support of the arts, and compelling storytelling from knowledgeable hosts.

Now we’re focusing on building a secure future for this music beyond the FM dial with “Classical California”. Classical California is our new umbrella brand, providing us a space where our current strengths (KUSC and KDFC) can co-exist alongside our aspirations for new services that nurture a love of classical music for all.

Our mission

Building Classical California

Building Classical California

Our radio stations are strong, and will remain vital local community organizations, but our listeners have encouraged us to do more. In a fragmented media world, delivering curated classical music with a human touch takes away from the everyday stress and helps us escape to a different place. California is a land of innovation, creativity, and curiosity. Our attitude is inclusive and approachable, and we welcome all on whatever your classical music journey might be.
