The High Voltage Rock N Roll Radio show is dedicated to playing all the genres of hard rock and metal, especially obscure and independent artists, as well as unusual or rare songs from larger bands.
Chuck Cannon says, “We all volunteer our time and skills to honor the memory of our friend and long time programmer Curt Mason who rocked the Tuesday overnights for 12 plus years with ‘The Rocker’ radio Show for KKFI. So we’re on a ‘mission from Curt’ to continue his plan to expand the minds of the High Voltage listeners with old, new and obscure metal and rock n roll.”
Cannon, along with his fellow programmers have done several interviews in the past with local bands such as Malikai, Surrogate Sons, The ‘Tards, Rocker Lips, Ancient Creation, Ares Kingdom, Meat Shank, and The Outta Styles.

- Jon Willis – Big Jon is a self-proclaimed metal-head and his style is to play the heavier bands, but is liable to play almost anything hard rock and metal.
- Travis Sloan – Terrible Travis Sloan is a long time KKFI volunteer and worked with Curt Mason. Travis’ philosophy is to do a radio show that is different from radio shows in Kansas City, and to play most any genre of rock n metal.
