On Friday, October 23, I had a grand, three-hour tour of University of Minnesota's student-run radio station KUOM (aka Radio K) in Minneapolis. With a lengthy history (its AM signal dates back to the 1920s), Radio K embraces its past, yet also benefits from its state of the art digs. Inhabiting nearly an entire floor of a building, the station's space is full of personality, with some interesting artifacts from the past.
