These are the faces (and voices) of KDRU. This hand picked, close knit team works together to make KDRU the best that it can be. Show us some love by tuning in and interacting with us via our social media accounts or studio line (both readily available in the sidebar).



Meet our foot soldiers. They create, plan out, and host programs for all to hear.



Two words. Tech. Wizard. This guy sets up, maintains, and spit-shines all of our equipment so that all of this is possible. No small feat, that job.

The liaison between the university and us, as well as the one to got us on FM, meet the ‘father’ of KDRU. (fact: he’s been to more rock shows than he can count on both hands. That’s at least ten.)

Passion: Journalism and how it continues to evolve in todays world

Favorite Rock Show Experience: “I have  a few different favorites. I Saw Pink Floyd (sans Roger Waters) IN THE 80’S. Also saw The Who on the 25th anniversary of Tommy. But I would have to put seeing Van Halen in their prime in 1982 (Diver Down Tour) up there.”
