KXUA is the college radio station of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

We are an eclectic format station that plays music that cannot be heard on other radio stations in the Northwest Arkansas area. We are non-profit, student run, and commercial free. We never play any songs that have appeared on the Billboard Top 40 charts in the last 40 years. KXUA strives to support local and under represented artists!

All DJ positions are volunteer. Anyone affiliated with the university (student, faculty, or staff) can apply!


Our current programming consists of: Genre shows, Talk shows, and Open Call shows

Current genres we cover are: Alternative, Experimental, Electronic/EDM, Folk, Hip-hop, Indie, Jazz, Metal, Pop, Punk, Rock, Singer/Songwriter, and World. DJs play an hour of genre specific music as well as discuss the history, community, and structure of their genre. Most music made today cannot be simply categorized by a single genre, so expect to hear different interpretations each week!

Talk shows are interview style podcasts. These will be recorded and uploaded to our website for later listening. Our hosts are hard at work inviting new guests to dive into interesting topics. We broadcast news, sports, interviews, and departmental specific content. Check out our schedule for more information!

Open Call, or freeform shows, are just that — DJs pitch an idea or theme for a talk show or music show! We are a creative outlet and want everyone to bring unique ideas to our station!
