As festival season approaches we here at KXUA want to share with our listeners the gift that keeps on giving… FESTIVAL TICKETS! Distributing such goodies to our loyal listeners requires a set of rules set in place to ensure all callers understand how our ticket giveaways work and how you are able to win!
- Starting at the designated hour pre-planned by the current host all ticket giveaways will be done by testing callers via trivia question. The host will ask a series of fun trivia questions concerning the festival and or concert.
- Callers are limited to one call-in per show and will be allowed one chance to answer a lineup/concert trivia question. If answered correctly participants will have their name entered into the drawing for the designated giveaway.
Our hotline number is as follows: (479) 575-5883
3. At the last 10 minutes on the hour KXUA will draw winners by random and winners will be contacted with further info regarding pickup times. All tickets must be picked up in PERSON at the KXUA office in the student union.

A new year is here, and KXUA is fully embracing the opportunity to change and grow for the better. While we are still heavily focused on bringing you the best in music, we’ve done a bit of thinking and have decided to expand beyond your car radio.
You’ve likely already seen some of the results of our experimentation: We’ve introduced more journalistic programming like Newswave and Minority Report to our schedule, our latest selections are shared on Spotify, and there’s more tweeting than before. We’re pleased with the feedback that we’ve gotten, so now we’re going even further to better serve the University of Arkansas and the community at large.
Our first big change for the year is an exciting one: We’re joining Spinitron. This means that you can see on our website what’s playing live on the radio and stream and also have the ability to look back at previous shows and see the playlists. This has been a major request and we often get emails and calls asking what songs were playing, so we’re very excited to be bringing this to you. Our Spinitron playlists and live playlist will become publicly available in the coming weeks while we train our DJs to use it and fine tune a few things.

- Mitski – Puberty 2
Mitski created the best album of 2016 without a doubt. Puberty 2 feels incredibly raw but carefully honed to perfection simultaneously. Continue reading KXUA’s Top 5 Of 2016: Station Manager Lucas Coberly
