The power is still out around some parts of the Northwest Regis University campus, and this reality carries over to the KRCX Regis Radio Station located in the basement of Clarke Hall. Since we haven’t been able to broadcast and display our talented new hires and DJs yet this year, let’s talk about it station’s history.

KRCX, the oldest college radio station in Denver, was one of the only stations to pioneer an apartment shortwave broadcast that connected to all of the dorms on campus--pretty convenient. Today, the radio streams online 24/7 and features a vast library of contemporary music important to students and timeless classic we all love-- from Snail Mail to Frank Ocean and all the way back to B.B. King. The station has seen legendary visitors in its professional-grade studio such as Ron Beaty, The Revivalists, Suuns, Oberhofer, Admiral Fallow and Bon Jovi.

 But variety means more than music, and KRCX has stuck by that. In 2008 a group from the station went to the convention center to cover the Democratic Convention-- come see our pictures! We are a station that has evolved to the profound sound we are today. Serving to inform and entertain the Regis community, KRCX hosts live campus events and broadcasts music, talk, sports, and community announcements. We are excited for a new year and to carry on a proud tradition of dedication to our students and neighbors in the community. Look out for our Open Mics or stop by the basement of Clarke to get a volunteer DJ application, get away from campus and talk music, politics or whatever you are passionate about.
