106.9 HOME.fm’s mission is to inspire Jackson and the surrounding communities with music and conversation that reflects Christ in a relevant way. 106.9 HOME.fm Plays Music That Makes You Feel Good on-air in Jackson, Michigan, and online from anywhere in the world and on our free phone app.
We are also known locally as Jackson’s HOME for Christmas music! Listen between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve for Christmas music around the clock.
We are a professionally-staffed commercial radio station, operating on the campus of Spring Arbor University. We work alongside and train a great group of current SAU students on our sister-station, 89.3 The Arbor.
Rachel Ryder is the one to ask about the latest technology or what song you just heard on the radio. She also teaches audio production classes at Spring Arbor University, and has been a part of Spring Arbor University Radio in various roles since 1999.
Rachel loves Christmas, birthdays and coloring. When she’s not on the air, you might find her on social media, watching documentaries and movies, thrifting, or spending time loving the Jackson community with her husband, David and their two sons; DJ and Willie.
