Every week, over 95,000 listeners tune in to 88.1 KDHX and 20,000 users visit the website. Calendars are one of the many valuable public resources KDHX provides for the community. On-air calendars, such as the Concert Calendar, Arts & Events Calendar, and Worms Eye Environmental Calendar are created exclusively from what is submitted and approved for display on KDHX.org. Due to the large number of communications we receive, we are not able to respond to every event listing request. We will list appropriate submissions, and will do our best to respond to questions about errors.
Please review the following information to help you better understand what KDHX calendars can do for you and your audience.
Events, like most everything at KDHX, are a community- and volunteer-driven resource that is provided to enrich the lives of our audience.

The best way to find information about a song is to check our show playlists. Visit KDHX.org, scroll to Radio Schedule and click on "View Show Playlists". You'll be directed to KDHX's page on Spinitron where we host our playlists. Click on the date and show to see full playlists.
Our DJs enter their own playlists, so if it's not on the playlist, they are the only ones who might be able to help. If the song you're looking for is not listed, you may call the DJ during their show time at 314-664-3688.
All KDHX DJs and hosts are volunteers and program their own shows individually. You may contact a specific DJ or show by calling the air line during that show, at 314-664-3688.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with KDHX! Most people know that our DJs are volunteers, but all of our departments utilize passionate, dedicated volunteers who wish to help us further our mission to build community through media. All volunteers are required to be 18 years of age or older. We can also accommodate volunteers for community service hours, with some restrictions. If you are looking for a way to get involved, please read the descriptions below and apply for the position that best fits your interests and skills.
The primary role of the music department is to maintain a library of releases, new and old, for DJs to use for their programs. Music department volunteers work with the music director to maintain the music library and process new music. If you have knowledge of genres played on KDHX, attention to detail, and are excited about new music discovery, this position could be for you. Apply here.
Events volunteers take care of all kinds of business, including representing KDHX at sponsored events around town, hanging posters throughout the listening area and more. If you love spreading the word about your favorite community media outlet, then the Events team can put you to work. Apply here.
Media Production & DJs
Our staff manages the facility and production programs, but our highly skilled volunteer producers get it all done. Were looking for people with skills and enthusiasm to host and program artful music shows, insightful podcasts and interview segments, produce on-air announcement and calendars, help out with in-studio performances, record and edit videos, and more. We offer training for most volunteer roles, but need to qualify candidates for advanced technical and performance type roles based on potential return on investment. If youve got the chops and the desire to contribute to community media, apply here.
