Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

A mix of sunshine and a few more clouds than yesterday but still a respectable day. It’ll be warm and comfortable with temperatures around 77. A weak low pressure and cold front swing through later with only a very isolated sprinkle in one or two spots, but much of today and tonight will be dry.

The Golden Oldies are Back on KUR for the Summer

The golden oldies was a huge hit with faculty, staff, community and students last summer so we brought it back for this summer. Listen to 50s through 70s oldies and a lot of rare cuts not heard even on stations who call themselves "oldies." Check it out whenever student specialty shows are not on-air. Remember, you can tell Alexa and Google to "play Kutztown University Radio on TuneIn," as well.
