Press Conference Recap: “Change” more prevalent than ever in Iowa football

A tough, smart, physical football team that wore you down and did all the little things right, on and off the field. On the interior, the changes made over the past week is more than many fans would ever think to see in a 40-year time span. Between morale, expression and unity, Iowa football is in a very different place than it was on Thursday, June 4th.

What the Students Want and What the University Wants

The University of Iowa sent out an email to students on Friday which detailed their plans for reform following the Iowa City Police Department’s recent use of teargas and flashbangs against peaceful protestors–inducing a seizure for one protestor and knocking others unconscious. In the email, they acknowledge “calls from members of our campus community to cut ties with the Iowa City Police Department”. Student Government demanded this same action in a mass email sent just moments before the University’s. After a paragraph discussing how the University must be a “driver of change” they list the plan’s steps. Any decrease of … Continued

KRUI is Iowa City’s premiere source for the latest in independent and local music. We also have an extensive library of older indie, pop, rock, electronic, hip hop, jazz, folk… you name it, it’s represented. Along with this prodigious selection of music, we also feature many specialty shows that focus on specific genres and eras. As long as it’s not commercial, it’s fair game for KRUI.

KRUI accepts music submissions from anyone with recordings. Whether you’re an unsigned band, a small label, a major label, or just a few kids playing around in the basement – if you play good music, we’ll give it a listen and consider it for airplay.

To submit music for airplay, just send it to KRUI at the address below. We accept all forms of media but CDs or vinyl are the best route to take. Please ensure your meets our submission guidelines:

  • – To be considered for airplay, your submission must be in one of the following formats: cassette, CD, or vinyl. Due to the way we currently operate, we cannot directly broadcast MP3s/other digital audio.
  • – Send us a little information. We don’t need much – just a little info explaining who you are and where you came from. This is particularly applicable to bands who are trying to break into college radio without the help of a promotion company. A little info can mean a lot.
  • – Please include a track list and make sure to note which tracks contain swearing/obscenities. That will help us know if/when we can play your music.
  • – It’s helpful for you to include a CD jewel case with your release. It makes it much easier for DJs to find and play your CD if it’s properly packaged and marked. Album art and liner notes help your music stand out from the rest of the pack.

Unfortunately, media submitted to us cannot be returned (due to shipping costs). For more information, you can contact the Music Director using the information below.

We do our best to respond to all tracking inquiries, but due to the volume of email we receive, we cannot guarantee a response. Thank you for understanding.
