University Beat - The Resurgence of Radio X


The student run radio station Radio X has been a presence on NMU's campus for several decades. With the natural tendency for turnover on a university campus, the success of Radio X has always been dependant on its students and the ability to pass the torch. Public Radio 90 intern Don Ede looks into what's behind the recent resurgence of the station.

Hans Ahlström is the host of several programs including the daily musical variety show Weekday, the mostly straight ahead jazz show Night Studio, the self explanatory Blues Today, and the eclectic Sound Spectrum. You can also hear Hans as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered news magazine. He also helps manage Public Radio 90's web content, interviews local and visiting writers and artists, works with NMU student interns, and writes the occasional news story.
