National Radio Week: The Hard Report on REV 105 with Kevin Cole

As part of KEXP’s National Radio Week coverage, on the KEXP Blog we will be spotlighting some of the stories and personal testimonials given by a variety of radio luminaries in interviews done with KEXP DJs John Richards, Kevin Cole, and Morning Show producer Owen Murphy. These interviews articulately explain the enduring legacy of early independent radio stations, as well as the importance of radio to shape and create a community through shared love of music.  In the words of WFNX DJ Kurt St. Thomas, “if you pay enough attention, radio will probably change your life.”

As originally featured in the May 13, 1994 issue of The Hard Report, reproduced below is an informative interview with KEXP’s Afternoon Show DJ Kevin Cole, printed two weeks after the launch of Twin Cities radio station REV 105. Tune in now (2-6 PM PST, August 18) for Kevin’s retrospective on REV 105, joined by Shawn Stewart.
