DonateStart a fundraiser

Dance, dance, dance! Award-winning c89.5 has been Seattle’s Home for Dance for nearly 50 years. c89.5 is also an educational organization, providing career-connected learning opportunities for hundreds of students.

Owned by Seattle Public Schools, c89.5 is operated by professional staff and students of Nathan Hale High School’s electronic media course, who gain experience in production, programming, on-air presentation, and music selection. Some of our radio shows are hosted by alumni and community volunteers.

c89.5 serves over 150,000 weekly listeners in the Puget Sound region. The station is almost entirely self-funded: 80% of operating revenue comes from listener donations and local business support.
