KRCU & KSEF are two NPR member radio stations. The stations are branded as "KRCU" and play classical music and other programs in the fields of news and light entertainment.

KRCU is licensed to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on 90.9 FM. It signed on with 10 watts of power as a college station in March 1976. In 1981 it increased power to 100 watts and in 1988 began transitioning to a public radio format. In 1992 KRCU increased power again, to 6,000 watts. Today KRCU broadcasts various genres of programming as the following: classical music during the day, news from NPR during the morning and afternoon commutes, jazz on Friday nights, entertainment programs on weekends and American Public Media's Classical 24 during the night.

KSEF is a repeater of KRCU; it is licensed to Sainte Genevieve, Missouri, on 88.9 FM, and signed on in September 2005. It has 20,000 watts of effective radiated power. KSEF was previously licensed to Farmington, Missouri until changed in 2010 to the nearby city of Sainte Genevieve.
