On April 23, 1981 KUNV Radio signed on the air from a temporary office on the first floor of UNLV’s Moyer Student Union. For the past 40 years, KUNV Radio has served the UNLV and Las Vegas communities with a mix of music, news and public affairs programming.
The radio station has been through many iterations over the past four decades; in an effort to document the many voices, stories and memories of those involved, KUNV along with the Oral History Research Center (a division of UNLV Libraries Special Collections & Archives) has commissioned an Oral History of the station’s vibrant past. This page will feature selected excerpts taken from some of the interviews conducted as part of this project.
Please check back throughout the year as we celebrate 40 years on the air.
