Fresh Fruit: 35 Years of Queer Radio


MinneCulture | KFAI

Fresh Fruit: 35 Years of Queer Radio chronicles the history of the nation's longest running LGBT radio show. Fresh Fruit first aired on Twin Cities community radio station, KFAI, on May 11, 1978, and has been broadcasting ever since. This audio documentary includes an overview of Fresh Fruit from 1978-2013, as well as preparations made by the original collective--a group of activists living in a queer hippy commune in Minneapolis. Produced by Dixie Triechel, with archival audio courtesy of The Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies.
