About Radio K
Radio K has always been dedicated to sharing a diverse range of the best independent music with our listeners, who may not otherwise have access to the artists we play. The musicians on our top ten list represent genres from hip hop to edgy synth rock, from dub pop to blues rock, and symphonic beach pop to garage punk. Most importantly, we picked these artists because our staff and volunteers love them. All of our top ten choices were voted on by our team members who recognize the talent and passion in the artists’ music, and agree that they deserve major success.
