Hi, and welcome to the Montana Radio Café!

The September 8, 2009 edition of the New York Times carried a story on the Montana Radio Cafe, focusing on the station, Scott, and low power FM radio stations. Read it here and watch the slideshow they put together of images and audio. It's a fantastic article and a huge honor.

If you came here via the Times story, welcome and thanks for stopping by!

Our station was born out of the desire for a radio station that plays great music that no one else plays. After around 18 years of playing music that everyone had heard a billion times, and for purely commercial reasons, Scott Johnston seized the opportunity to start a music driven low power station broadcasting from the studio he built on his front porch. He now has a library that comprises over 21,000 songs.

From family and friends to strangers in foreign places, the Montana Radio Cafe has become an infectious hit. Check out the blog posts here from the Flathead Beacon, by Myers Reece.

We are a listener supported radio station, and appreciate the tax-deductible contributions made by friends new and old, near and far. Click here to learn more about how you can help keep us on the air.
