Fresno Archives Project

KFCF and the Fresno Free College Foundation received a grant from the Fresno Arts Council to do a restoration project on our audio archives. These tapes were decaying due to a faulty tape formulation that was turning the tape into a gooey mess that made it near impossible to play the tape. Using a baking and digitization process we have now converted most of these libraries to a digital format. KFCF will be placing some of these treasures on-line for our members and listeners to stream.

From the menu below, select the program from the archives you would like to hear and then press “Play” to load your choice into our audio player…
