'I Used To Listen To KBSU: An Origin Story'

Jun 25, 2018

 A special one-hour documentary about the history of KBSU, more than 40 years in the making! 

 In 1976, a group of students at Boise State University met with a plan to start a student-run FM radio station, with an ambitious goal: “to bring progressive radio to a town that didn’t have it.” This music-rich, true-life retrospective follows the station’s founders as they retrace the history of KBSU from its rowdy beginnings, through the infamous "Takeover," to the well-earned praise and present-day accolades for the little student station that grew to become Boise State Public Radio.
