More Ways to Listen Online
Whether you're using a smart phone, tablet, PC, Mac, or smart speaker, if it has an internet connection, then it can stream our KPR and KPR2 audio feeds!
If you're having trouble playing audio on the KPR website, please read these suggestions and provide us with your feedback.
Listen Live Player on the KPR Website
Use any device with a browser and an internet connection to access the KPR website (the website you're looking at right now!) and the Listen Live Player. Click the big red button at the top of the screen to open a popup (make sure your browser isn't blocking the popups) and begin listening.
If you're experiencing trouble playing the KPR stream and/or on-demand audio:
- try using a different browser, such as Firefox
- if you cannot get the stream to play and you've tried multiple browsers, the stream could be blocked by an anti-virus software. You can correct this problem by adding kansaspublicradio.org to the list of authorized websites in the anti-virus software's configuration.
- if none of these options help, please provide us with feedback by filling out this form and then try another listening method like downloading the m3u and playing it via iTunes.

The KPR App is the best way to listen to KPR on your mobile device! Not only can you listen live to both KPR and KPR2, you can also listen to past recordings, archived episodes, watch videos and so much more. And it's free! Read more about it.
