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.

Strange Currency mixes and matches the old with the new, the familiar with the less familiar. Though we can all build our own playlists, it's still fun when someone does the heavy lifting for us. Host Jedd Beaudoin scours the wild terrains of new releases and searches the outback of classic cuts to bring you a thought-provoking listening experience each time. Strange Currency airs six nights a week and is available FREE for daily and weekend use, with specials available throughout the year.
