Music fans in the Twin Cities area are blessed with a plethora of great radio stations to choose from. No matter what your tastes or preferences are, you can typically find a spot on the local dial that is playing something you like. Radio K is definitely one of the best radio options in the area, for not only discovering new music, but hearing deeper album cuts from bands that you already love, as well as terrific in-studio sessions that we frequently focus on in Local Frames.

National music fans are taking notice of Radio K's stellar efforts as well, as the University of Minnesota's student-run radio station has just been nominated for four CMJ College Radio Awards, including the coveted Station of the Year award.
