KUCI, a non-profit station, broadcasting from the University of California at Irvine, offers an extraordinary lineup of talent on the air and online. As one of the very first radio stations to broadcast via the internet and one of the first iTune podcast stations, KUCI continues to provide the widest array of voices and music imaginable.
Since its beginning in 1969, KUCI has produced non-commercial talk and music programs that expand the sonic universe of its listeners, introducing groundbreaking artists and thinkers before their work hits the national and international spotlight.
A station that always takes pride in setting trends, KUCI stays on the edge of rock, reggae, world, classical, punk, experimental, indie, goth, jazz, folk, political right, middle, left, and everything in-between.
Authors, comedians, actors, directors, artists, musicians, scientists and politicians — Mikhail Gorbachev, Nels Cline, No Doubt, Paul Krugman, David Lynch, Mike Watt, Joseph Wilson, Busta Rhymes, Janeane Garofalo, Anne Lamott, DJ Shadow, Jon Lovitz, Jurassic 5, Rilo Kiley, Akron/Family and Monty Python’s Flying Circus have all been guests of KUCI early in their careers. Today, our staff continues to bring innovative and under-represented music and ideas commercial-free to Orange County and the world.
Non-commericial, freeform music and community programming is crucial to the radio landscape, the community, and the world. Your support plays a major role at one of the most adventurous radio stations on earth.
Thank you for becoming part of the KUCI family.
