Very cool station covering general aviation news and events mostly about EAA's AirVenture celebration. Live 7 days a year, with pre-recorded content the rest of the time. Very interesting!

According to their website:
ImageEAA Radio is an all-volunteer effort that strives to bring the sounds of AirVenture to convention attendees and EAA members around the world. EAA Radio’s AM and FM signals and webstream originate from The Bill Fobes Broadcast Center, located on the AirVenture grounds.

Each year, EAA Radio offers 24/7 programming on AM and FM and around the world through the EAA Radio webstream. Beginning each day at 0600 CDT/1100 Zulu EAA Radio broadcasts live interviews with compelling aviation figures from all corners of aviation.

In any given hour you can hear a conversation with a famous test pilot, the last word on ATC etiquette, the newest innovation in homebuilt aircraft, or the deeply personal journey of an amateur builder. Not all AirVenture stories are told in the studio. EAA Radio’s team of ambitious field reporters are constantly roving the grounds talking to aviation luminaries and attendees; making it possible that you may hear from everyone that attended AirVenture in 2008. EAA Radio has this all as well as coverage of important events across the convention grounds such as the Meet the Administrator forum, new product announcements, and the Daily Showcase and Air Show.

In the evening EAA Radio brings to you live, Theater-in-the-Woods with its colorful line-up of awards presentations, speakers, and entertainment. For AirVenture attendees, EAA Radio is a mobile source for convention information including: key events, weather, information on EAA services, and twice-hourly announcements of upcoming forums taking place across AirVenture.

EAA Radio continues to diversify its programming and this year will have several new daily features, as well as unique on-air programming that can only occur at AirVenture.
