Studio 89 Returns
Studio 89 - WNKU's weekly radio show featuring up and coming talent from around the country performing on air in front of a live studio audience - is back. The show air live Monday nights at 7 pm through April 30th.
We have an outstanding lineup of artists for you this year. As always, we've searched the country as well as our own back yard for some of the coolest veterans and hottest up and comers to the national and local scenes. We're bringing in talent from as far away as Houston, TX and Brooklyn, NY. We've got a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, a local Zydeco mainstay and, being that we're always open to having the occasional living legend, we're bringing in Bill Kirchen to close out the series. Check out the entire lineup below.
New this year, all performances will take place in the Digitorium of NKU's brand new Griffin Hall. The Digitorium is a state of the art facility complete with opera box seating, professional lighting, and a 15' x 25' led video wall. Once again, NKU's talented Electronic Media students will be recording it all to video for playback on Kentucky Educational Television and Insight Cable.
As in the past, seating is limited for Studio 89. We will begin taking reservations from the general public on the Tuesday before each upcoming session. Reservations will be accepted until noon on the preceding Friday. If we receive more requests for reservations than we have seats, a lottery will be held and winners will be contacted via e-mail.
