Radio K

Radio K (KUOM) is the award-winning student-run radio station of the University of Minnesota, playing an eclectic variety of independent music both old and new. Radio K educates students, breaks ground in musical programming, and provides cutting-edge cultural coverage through our specialty shows.

Radio K began broadcasting back in 1912 and continues this proud tradition today.  From farm reports and football games broadcast in Morse code to education for homebound kids during the polio epidemic; from Garrison Keillor's radio roots to being one of the reasons Rolling Stone magazine thinks the U of M rocks, Radio K has covered a lot of ground in its 100+ year history.
