KRUI prides itself on interviewing the finest names in alternative music as well as significant cultural icons. Since 2008, students and community members working at KRUI have interviewed more than a hundred bands, artists, and others. Some, like the indie-pop outfit fun., have gone on to pen massive #1 hits. Others, like Saturday Night Live‘s head writer Seth Meyers, shape the cultural landscape of America through comedy. And you heard them all here on KRUI first.
