The Heartland Labor Forum
The Heartland Labor Forum is Kansas City’s only program about the workplace. It’s radio that talks back to the boss! Whether you’re a union member or your workplace isn’t organized, Heartland Labor Forum (HLF) has stories for you, guaranteed to inspire, educate, or enrage you. HLF is produced by a diverse group of working people and coordinated by The UMKC’s Labor Studies Program. We have been agitating for the rights of working people on the KKFI airwaves since 1989. Find out about labor struggles and strikes, organizing in Kansas City, global sweatshops, and how the economy is working from the point of view of working people. Listen to our monthly features: Know Your Rights, Safety First, Economics Unmasked, and Washington Window on Workers. Heartland Labor Forum has won the International Labor Communications Association first prize for radio several times. Other media have plenty of business news of, by, and for the 1%; HLF is for the rest of us.

The Boogie Bridge (Music)
As host Jason Vivone explains: The Boogie Bridge was a real place in my hometown. When I was a kid, it sounded like the best place on Earth. Still does, actually. We heard tales of the great legends of blues just playing on the other side of that bridge in joints you could only imagine. That’s what this KKFI show is — a connection to great music you might not know is out there.
