KMUW

StationAccount image
KMUW's programming is more diverse than a typical commercial radio station and even some public stations. The "sound" of KMUW is distinctive - with news and discussion programs that are longer and more broad-based in subject matter, and music programming that is eclectic and innovative, yet still accessible. KMUW provides the people of South Central Kansas with informative and creative radio programming, to meet the educational and entertainment needs of a supportive radio audience, while enhancing and extending the services of Wichita State University. KMUW is the home station for two nationally distributed music shows - the world music show Global Village, and Triple AAA/indie show Strange Currency. Both shows are free and available for both daily and weekend time slots. Please see the individual series pages for more information about both.
