Live @ Lunch
Live @ Lunch is a daily showcase of live music. The show airs weekdays from noon to 1:00 and features local and touring musicians from diverse musical styles. Live @ Lunch is 100% LIVE and contains no pre–recorded interviews and no second takes!
The show is hosted by a KRFC volunteer. The host introduces the artist/group and controls the flow of the show. There is a combination of live music and chit–chat between the host and artist/group. A few CD tracks may be played, but the focus is on the live, in-studio performance. The exact mix of these elements depends on the artist/group and host. Audio engineering is also done by a KRFC volunteer.
In early 2009, Live @ Lunch began podcasting one show per week. Now you can listen to Live @ Lunch anytime you want! Vist our podcast page to subcribe.

How are the groups scheduled?
Groups are scheduled by the Live @ Lunch Booking crew with assistance the Live @ Lunch committee. Submissions are screened once mid-monthly for the following month’s shows. Due to a large volume of submissions and a small booking team, we may not respond if we are not able to accommodate your request for some reason. This is no reflection on how awesome we think you are. If you have limited schedule availability, please schedule early!
What kind of music does Live @ Lunch feature?
Live @ Lunch features diverse styles of music. Music styles include folk, bluegrass, jazz, rock, hip-hop, reggae
What are the production facilities like?
The studio for Live @ Lunch is 11’x17’ total; usable space for musicians is 10.5’x11’ plus a little room to the side of the host’s desk. The size of group depends on the size of the instruments/amps. A five–piece band with drums is very cozy (and loud) in the studio. There is a 16-channel snake which leads to a mixer in the adjacent control room. The program is mixed, broadcast, and recorded 100% live!
For a list of our equipment, see our Live @ Lunch Technical Information.
When do we need to be there?
Groups and solo artists should arrive at the studio at 11:00. Groups with four or more people, or complex sound requirements are advised to arrive at 10:30. The time required for your group will be determined when the group is scheduled.
When can I make a repeat appearance?
We invite you to come back six months after you perform on Live @ Lunch. This gives the tremendous number of musicians, both local and nationally touring, the chance to perform on Live @ Lunch.
