Three New Music Shows Debuting This Week

When KOSU and The Spy teamed up in August 2012, KOSU station director Kelly Burley said that The Spy was providing "a vibrant venue for music genres that are completely underserved in our state."

With that in mind, The Spy and KOSU will launch three new music shows this week that will either take listeners on a new musical journey every week, celebrate new music and artistic endeavors in Oklahoma, or showcase funk, soul, and afrobeat.

Help KOSU Share the Stories of Oklahoma City's Homeless Population

Every story has dignity and a uniquely human touch, but some stories are harder to tell than others.

When KOSU opened a studio in Oklahoma City’s Film Row district, we started working one block away from the City Rescue Mission and came in daily contact with the homeless community. We wanted to find a way to tell their story, a story that is mostly untold with dignity.

Now, with your help, we have an opportunity to do that. With the inspiration of programs like StoryCorps and Youth Radio, we are raising funds so the homeless community can tell its story in a very personal way.

KOSU will lend its expertise in radio and sound mixing, and your gift will help recruit members of the homeless community and buy recorders to allow them to tell their own stories. KOSU will then help them mix down the sound into a documentary that we will air and make available for podcast.
