During Fund Drive week, we like to liven up pledge central with different on-air pitching guests. During our Monday episode of Afternoon Classics, we received a visit from Dr. Nicholas Kenney, professor of applied horn and assistant director of bands at Southeast Missouri State University. We were happy to host a live performance and give our listeners a preview of Kenney’s talents for his upcoming recital, “A Sonic Journey,” on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Shuck Recital Hall on Southeast’s River Campus.

KRCU Will Air ‘Dracula’ on Halloween

Oct 30, 2017

The dead will howl this Halloween, Oct. 31, as 90.9/88.9FM, KRCU presents “Dracula.”

Listeners will be terrified and treated to Philip Feeney’s “Dracula,” a ballet based on the novel by Bram Stoker.  The program will be hosted by special ghost-host Morgana: a sorceress who has been frightening audiences for centuries.

Barbara Herbert, host of “Afternoon Classics,” is excited about the prospect of doing a Halloween special.
