About KCBP Community Radio


Our vision for the station is to highlight what’s local in music and the arts and in issue-oriented programs. Our goal is to enrich our community and region with unique programming that serves our local needs and interests. Besides offering a wide range of music, selected by local programmers, we want to increase public awareness of issues important in our community and region. 


A committee of volunteers, some with extensive radio experience, is currently developing five local programs and, through our affiliation with The Pacifica Foundation and other sources, we have access to scores of programs we can choose to stream. Between now and August 2018 when we secure final approval from the FCC to go on air, we’ll gradually increase the number of local programs we generate from our community and region. As we grow and get community feedback, we’ll continue developing programming that’s local. 


"We need more volunteers to create new programs, write Public Service Announcements (PSA’s), and do other needed tasks. See “Volunteer” to help out."

We are currently in need of donations to cover the start up costs of building a transmitter site and associated equipment for daily broadcast operations. We need volunteers to help with fundraising activities, underwrirting and donations. We are partnered with Network For Good and hope you will chose to support your new community non-commercial radio station. We need your support! 


All who contribute $500 or more will be listed as Founding Members of Community Radio KCPB 95.5 FM.


In  2017, we began our radio journey with our small group of volunteers. The online stream launched in late July and has been running ever since. KCBP is now currently broadcasting on 95.5fm from 2:00pm-2:00am daily. We will be increasing our signal strength, coverage area and our brodcast time will eventually be 24/7. 

"Independent community radio helps us grow.  It shares stories, people, ideas, and music that we may not be familiar with. Our horizons expand."

This new community radio station is a project of the Modesto Peace/Life Center (MPLC). Seven years ago we applied to the Federal Communications Commission  (FCC). 


The enthusiasm and eagerness of a wide range of people to support KCBP will help us achieve one of our goals: to put community into community radio.
