Welcome to our new website!

Hello, and welcome to KALA 88.5FM’s brand new website!

Over the summer, the staff at KALA worked to develop a space where you can find everything you need to connect with, contact, and listen to KALA radio.

KALA is a public radio station operating out of the Galvin Fine Arts Center on the campus of St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. KALA began broadcasting in 1969. Since then, the station expanded with a second frequency on 106.1FM, hosted numerous live sports and news events, and been proud sponsors of diversity events throughout the Quad Cities.

Over the summer we hosted an open house to celebrate 50 years of KALA, participated and were a sponsor of The Bill Bell Jazz and Heritage Festival, were a sponsor of the Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Festival, walked in the East Moline 4th of July parade, and partnered with Mercado on Fifth to promote the weekly open-air market. We hope you find our website to be helpful, informative, and engaging.
