KZYX has launched AirPocket, a mobile-friendly player created by Radio Rethink, a small company dedicated to improving community radio's reach and accessibility in the digital world. 

Started by a former music director at KGNU in Boulder CO, the company says it's "absolutely critical for the marginalized news and public affairs programming of public media to be as available as the content of major broadcast organizations with mobile development and marketing teams.

We believe that when it comes to music, nobody digs deeper into the crates than public and community radio DJs. Their unending drive to share the greatest lost, overlooked, or misunderstood musical recordings needs the same mobile availability as the major corporate curators and taste makers who often toss aside the most unique sounds around us."

Access the player by clicking http://bit.ly/2vJWzE0, and let us know how you like it.
