Tune in Wednesday for our weekly artist feature, this time featuring The Wildman, covering John Denver!⠀

“Humanitarian, activist, and conservationist. John Denver is one of the most influential singer song-writers of the 20th century. A vocal supporter of environmental issues, space exploration, and anti-censorship, his influence reaches far beyond the world of music. Denver’s music expresses a passion for life and the outdoors I’ve seldom found elsewhere. I cannot think of a better artist to highlight for my last artist feature.” — view on Instagram

Tune in for our weekly artist feature tomorrow 5-8 pm with our very own Voyager as he showcases The Beatles!⠀

The Beatles are four boys from Liverpool whose impact on western music and culture is immeasurable. Their style and personas aligned with what made the 60’s a time to many remember: a time of social consciousness and change. From their beginnings as a mop-topped, love song-singing boy band to their eventual shift into the titans of music world that we know them as today, The Beatles left a measurable impact on the world. As Mikhail Gorbachev - former President of the Soviet Union - said, “More than any ideology, more than any religion, more than Vietnam or any war or nuclear bomb, the single most important reason for the diffusion of the Cold War was … the Beatles.” — view on Instagram

Last night, our new trainees got paired with trainers!! We wish you guys a great rest of the semester. Pictured here is the “Juic3” Family. ❤️ //
For those who don’t know, a trainer is a mentor for upcoming new DJs at KMNR. They teach them how to play music, how to log and play programming, and how to talk on air (along with many other things)! By the end of the semester, trainees will be ready to host a show all on their own. They’ll also be able to pick their DJ name. //
Stay tuned for New DJ Introductions at the end of the semester!! — view on Instagram
