October 6th is World College Radio Day! What do you love about College Radio? What's your fondest memory about ktru? We're elated to celebrate 2 fun years back on FM this week and look forward to celebrating 50+ years of musical delights with our listeners. #collegeradioday #ktru
As the day begins, a moment of silence for our fallen brothers and sisters in Las Vegas. Music can be a great healer. The victims last night were taking part in the magic that is music. Now their lives and beyond are forever changed. Taken away in the case of 50+ live music goers. Call someone you love and tell them "I love you". Even if it's been a minute since you spoke to them. It's time for healing. And change. One Love.
Check out this review of the BANKS concert in Houston this past week!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Charles Bradley.
Mr. Bradley was truly grateful for all the love he’s received from his fans and we hop...e his message of love is remembered and carried on. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
