College Radio Primer - Who put the shield around the K? - 8-10pm tonight!

K Records was founded by Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, Go Team, Dub Narcotic Sound System) in 1982 in Olympia, Washington. Incorporating the anti-corporate stance and DIY ethic of punk rock, K Records grew from a cassette-only label dedicated to releasing compilations of Olympia bands into a reknowned purveyor of independent pop music that transformed the sound of college radio. The K Records sound helped to make the Pacific Northwest into a Mecca for independent musicians and laid the foundations for Sub Pop, Kill Rock Stars, grunge, and modern indie-pop. Tune in to WXDU 88.7FM from 8-10pm tonight to hear the story of K Records: exploding the teenage underground into passionate revolt against the corporate ogre since 1982.

And stayed tuned afterwards for Nobody's Driving from 10-11pm for the best and weirdest of Pacific Northwest punk and hardcore!
