In another round of first times for Kansas City, local community-radio station KKFI 90.1 is hoping to film and broadcast the International Folk Alliance showcase concerts live when the conference goes down February 19-23. The station needs a little help, though. In order to purchase the broadcasting equipment needed for the job, KKFI is hoping that a Kickstart campaign will get it the funding it needs. 

From the Kickstarter page: 
 

The first night of the conference we plan to broadcast sets from local musicians and bands so they can be heard by not only the Kansas City audiences but also by our international listeners who listen via our online stream. We may also broadcast shows from some of the other international artists playing on other nights of the conference. 

"This may well be the first time that the Folk Alliance concerts have been broadcast in this fashion," says Barry Lee, KKFI station manager, in the Kickstarter video. 

Adds FAI director Louis Meyers: "We really need your help sending out Kansas City music and good folk music into the world." 

With 16 days left in the Kickstarter campaign, KKFI is nearly halfway to its goal of $10,000. Donations start at $1. See the Kickstarter page for more information and to donate.
