Montana Public Radio Music Show Archives Now Streaming Online

April 25, 2018

MISSOULA – Online archives for Montana Public Radio music shows such as “Freeforms,” “Pea Green Boat,” “Jazz Sessions,” “The Folk Show” and more now are available for Missoulians through Radio Free America at http://www.radiofreeamerica.com/schedule/kufm-1.

“For years, listeners have been asking for archives of our music programs,” MTPR program director Michael Marsolek said. “We’re so happy we’re now able to offer this fabulous new service.”

MTPR already offers podcasts for non-music shows at http://mtpr.org/podcasts-mtpr, but the challenges of complying with music copyright laws had prevented MTPR from archiving music shows online until now.

“Radio Free America – a free, on-demand, program-archiving service – has allowed MTPR to provide Missoulians with another way to listen to their favorite local programs,” MTPR online editor Josh Burnham said.

Montana Public Radio’s locally produced music shows are available online for two weeks after they air. Listeners can catch entire shows in real-time from a radio or any device with online access.

Montana Public Radio airs across much of western and central Montana: at 89.1 and 91.5 in Missoula; 91.9 in Hamilton; 89.5 in Polson; 90.1 in Kalispell, Whitefish and North Valley; 90.5 in Libby; 91.7 in Kalispell; 101.3 in Swan Lake; 91.3 in Butte; 91.7 in Helena; 89.9 in Great Falls; 91.7 in Dillon; and online at http://mtpr.org.
