The KUVO High School/Collegiate Series kicked off in 1997 and quickly became an important part of the station’s programming. The goal was always to support young musicians, but the results have been mind-blowing.  Two decades of monthly student broadcasts have been made possible by heroic music directors, dedicated parents, hard-working students, encouraging staff and volunteers, and a host of community underwriters that provide the equipment AND PIZZA to make it all happen!
