30 Years of KRUI
30th Anniversary Celebration
On March 28, 1984 at 7:18pm CST, KRUI hit the airwaves at 89.7 FM as “Iowa City’s sound alternative.” After a sign on including congratulations by numerous University, student, and state officials, the tradition of an FM broadcast facility begun. We have since had the likes of: Fun., Sharon Van Etten, Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps, Seth Meyers, Neil Degrasse Tyson, and Jeffery Tambor in the studio.
Below you’ll find multimedia posts of KRUI’s impressive history.
