College Radio Day

The Basement Takeover on October 6, College Radio Day!

Tune in Friday, October 6 as KUMD celebrates College Radio Day along with stations across the country.  The Basement djs takeover the airwaves all day! KUMD was started 60 years ago by students at the University of Minnesota Duluth and celebrating our deep college roots, check out the student playlists of new alternative music from hip-hop to indie rock to electronic.

Most people don't think of the 1925 silent film The Phantom of the Opera as the Raiders of the Lost Ark of it's time ... but then, most people haven't watched it every day for a week, getting ready to accompany it in a special performance at the Sacred Heart Music Center.

More information about tonight's performance of The Phantom of the Opera is available here.

Note: in celebration of National College Radio Day on KUMD,  we're pleased to welcome Northland Morning Assistant Producer Abrielle Vizenor as our interviewer for Radio Theatre this week.

In theater, the "house" is either the audience ("how does the house look? Pretty full?") or the place where the audience sits ("dim the house lights and cue curtain!").
