Turn of the Century

Tuesdays, from 8-9 p.m.
  • Hosted by Rob Vera

There's the music of your life and the music of your young life.  For Rob Vera, the sounds of the turn of the last century are the sounds of "home".

From rock to hip hop, punk to alt-country, electronic to ska and a thousand points along the spectrum ranging from alternative to popular, Turn of the Century turns our ears back to one of the most exciting and adventurous periods of music, the 90's and 2000's.

Join Rob every Tuesday night at 8 PM on The Spy and KOSU for a journey back in time to hear the music you know and the music that knows you.

Turn of the Century will be a mix of old favorites, lesser known gems and songs that will become new classics in the space between your headphones.  Prepare to sit back, relax, and enjoy the greatest music from the greatest 20 years in music history.

Artists heard on the show: Smashing Pumpkins, Portishead, Janet Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest, Interpol, Queens of the Stone Age & more

Rob Vera's Top 15 Albums of 2016

Dec 28, 2016

Turn of the Century host Rob Vera shares his 15 favorite albums of 2016:

15. Thee Oh Sees - A Weird Exits

Frantic and psychedelic rock talent with few peers deliver another album full of pace and passion.

14. Solange - A Seat At the Table

As a valued KOSU listener, we want you to know about some upcoming changes to our program schedule that begin this weekend.

As many of you know, the $1.3 billion state budget shortfall and subsequent state budget for the new fiscal year dealt a significant blow to many institutions across the state, resulting in layoffs, closures, and more. For KOSU, that resulted in a nearly 10 percent reduction in our state-based funding in the past six months.
