KU's student radio station, KJHK (90.7 FM), is getting a bit of national attention: mtvU, MTV's college-oriented TV channel, asked the students there to be part of its "College Radio Countdown."
That means they submitted a list of their 10 favorite music videos for the channel to play (apparently this is one MTV division that actually does play music videos).
The KJHK folks also produced a quite funny and well-choreographed video clip to introduce the playlist, giving a quick tour of the studio in the Kansas Union. And student Alex Applegate, the station's music director, wrote an introductory passage that incudes not one but two haikus.
I found the students' video quite entertaining, though I must confess their playlist made me feel quite old, as I do not know what any of the songs are. Which is to say they probably have quite good musical taste.
Send your KU news tips, or perhaps your music recommendations that can help me feel like I have some sort of grasp on what those darn kids are listening to these days, to email@example.com.
