Off the Record; On to Video is a weekly video program providing a new visual and technological path for Minnesota musicians to increase their audience exposure - at once expanding both the scope of the work that can be created within Minnesota and the breadth of the audiences exposed to Minnesota artists through a weekly filmed, live-performance at Radio K.
Culture Queue is a weekly 30-minute fast-paced and sound-rich radio show consisting of locally-focused, Minnesota-made arts and culturally-centered programming that is drawn from a diverse student-body that interweaves voices from a rich tapestry of ages, ethnicities, and abilities, and delivered across the state, ensuring access to Minnesota's artistic resources regardless of income or mobility.
