The Sun Radio Foundation

Our mission is to preserve the culture of Texas music with a minimal impact on the environment. Sun Radio creates and distributes solar-powered radio programming to non-commercial member stations. We help foster new radio broadcasting careers for the residents of the Texas Hill Country and provide 24/7, free, local radio for the communities we serve. Proceeds are used to expand local programming, create local jobs, support other non-profit organizations, broadcast local musicians and events, and fund new capital projects designed to increase our coverage area.
