THURSDAY IS SUN RA'S BIRTHDAY!

Do you really need another reason to listen to KMSU? We can give you endless reasons why this station is your FM home, but this Thursday night at seven p.m. you'll hear one mutha of a reason...

TWO FULL HOURS OF SUN RA ON THURSDAY NIGHT JAZZ!

Where else can you hear Sun Ra on the radio, let alone two solid hours?

Maverick Slim and Prez are marking the 94th birthday of this late great jazz titan by pulling out all the stops. You'll hear great example's of Sun Ra's music hand selected by two of KMSU's leading jazz hosts. Shelley ran the boards for them and her report was that it was amazing. I have no doubt that that was an understatement.
