Douglas: Garza’s return spells historic upcoming season for Iowa

Iowa athletics hasn’t seen a decision of this magnitude in 35 years. Not since the winter of 1985 to be exact when star quarterback Chuck Long announced he would return to Iowa to help the Hawkeyes get a shot at a national championship and a Heisman Trophy. Instead of the gridiron, this decision came on the hardwood, and the subject of the decision was Luka Garza. His decision? It’s time to ramp up for the winter of 2020-21 as the reigning Big Ten Player of the Year. The consensus 1st-team All-American is returning to Iowa City for his senior season. … Continued

The Best Releases of July – Music Staff Picks

Written contributions from Jaden Amjadi, Sydney Sjobakken, and Derek Tate Illuminati Hotties – Free I.H: This is not the One You’ve Been Waiting For Everything about the presentation of this new record from Illuminati Hotties–from its status as a mixtape to its name–implies it is meant to be taken more as an interim before their real sophomore album. And yet, this may go down as one of the most memorable punk records of the year. Core member Sarah Tudzin takes the foundation of power-pop and plays with its boundaries with songs that are still fun and immediate. The opener, “will … Continued

Free Duke

28-year-old Tremayne “Duke” Clemons has been falsely accused of a shooting in Coralville, and eight months later is still in jail. He has not been able to post bail or bond even thought he has already been proven innocent. Police raided Duke’s home and took him into custody January 7. He was questioned and was able to prove that he had no connection, but was held in jail. Polices obtained an illegal urine sample, and since Duke had marijuana in his system they felt that they could keep him in custody. Duke’s trial is set for August 17, and he … Continued

Opinion: No football spells danger for student-athletes and local economies

Is there going to be a college football season at all in the 2020 calendar year due to the COVID-19 pandemic? In my short answer: yes, there absolutely should be. The time on the calendar that sports fans begin to set their sights on the upcoming college football season has been the debate that has been raging hot since the 4th of July holiday. However, we can’t deny the reality of our current situation. National cases are on the climb, over 130,000 Americans have died from the virus and the closest vaccine is likely on hold until this upcoming winter. … 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.
