What if there was a place you could go, anytime you want to feel more connected to San Francisco? BFF.fm is an award-winning community radio station, coming to you 24/7 from the heart of San Francisco. We showcase diverse, authentic voices and unite music lovers with great new sounds in the magical way only live radio can.

“It feels like San Francisco when you listen to this station.” - Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle

Wherever you are, whenever you’re lonely, we’ll introduce you to awesome bands you’ve never heard before. And you’ll be connected to a cool community of music lovers helping us build strong community radio for San Francisco…our Besties. Become a monthly donor, and you can become a Bestie, too!


Since launching our Besties program, you've allowed us to take some big steps to grow BFF.fm. Your sustaining support has helped us:

  • upgrade our streaming server- there are fewer drops and outages than ever, meaning more interrupted tunage for you!
  • hire out first full-time employee- our general manager is responsible for day-to-day operations and leading the station’s growth as an arts organization. You're a job creator!
  • expand our live events across the Bay- thanks to your sustaining support, we were able to launch a new bi-weekly concert series, MUSH, in Jack London Square this summer...absolutely FREE to the community.
  • welcome great new DJs to our community-whether or not they have the ability to pay monthly dues to the station.
  • draft our first strategic plan- creating an exciting vision for our future.

You made all that great stuff happen in just one year! Imagine what we achieve with even more Besties on board.


As a BFF.fm Bestie you'll:

  • amplify the voices of local artists and musicians who are underrepresented in mainstream media
  • enable us to book or sponsor more than 30 music showcases at venues big and small across the city
  • help keep BFF.fm running for years to come

Plus, being a Bestie entitles you to cool perks like

  • our exclusive Bestie Badge when you first join, plus an annual thank you gift
  • access to Besties-only ticket giveaways and special offers
  • free admission to our Bestie Bash events, held at our studios and featuring awesome local bands

Our goal is to gain 75 new Besties over the next 30 days during our annual Summer Sustainer. To sweeten the deal, we'll throw in a few extra surprises to help you have a little more fun this summer.

Want to Become a Bestie in Support of Your Favorite Show/DJ?

Each one of our volunteer DJs pays monthly dues to cover BFF.fm's rent, streaming expenses, and music royalties. Become a dedicated listener Bestie by clicking the “Support This Show” button on your favorite show’s page. It’s the best way to say "thanks for keeping me company during my day!” You’ll get all the same perks as a regular Bestie, but your donation will directly support the program you choose, up to their full dues amount each year. (donations above that amount benefit the entire station.)
