Memorial Day Party Time

This weekend on KRNU:

  • Saturday, it’s the 90.3 KRNU Top 100 of the 1980s and before, starting at 10am and concluding at 8pm (replayed from 10pm to 8am).
  • Sunday, it’s the Top 100 of the 1990s, again from 10am to 8pm, replaying from 10pm to 8am.
  • And then on Monday, it’s the Top 100 of the first six years of the 00s, 10am to 8pm, 10pm to 8am.
  • It’s been a long couple of weeks of researching, surveying, tabulating, ranking and assembling. I love countdowns, but this weekend’s festivities had a secondary purpose. The amount of storage at KRNU has recently increased, allowing for much of the long-ago departed music to be restored to the library. There’s been an extra focus in these past few weeks on the music that was popular at KRNU back in the late 80s and early 90s when the switch from top 40 to alternative happened.

    So in addition to 30 original hours of the best of the past 25 years of indie music, the back catalogue at KRNU should be noticeably replenished post-Memorial Day.
