Radio K Quick Queue 

Radio K's Quick Queue is quick. It's slick. It's sound-rich. And in around ninety seconds you'll know an awful lot more about the Arts & Culture scene in the Twin Cities than you did two minutes ago.

A weekly dose of arts, culture, and history on the radio and in 90 seconds. Quick Queue’s unique, story-telling style provides seamless transition from music programming into the voices of Minnesota artists, historians, writers, poets and more both through direct broadcast and a lasting, digital archive – providing Minnesota arts and culture access across the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Support for this program comes from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
