Radio K, the student-run radio station of the University of Minnesota, is currently in the thick of its annual fund drive. But rather than goad Golden Gophers into giving with, like, Ken Burns VHS box sets or something, they're offering donors a crack at a very cool compilation of live tracks from some top-shelf artists set to tape in the Radio K studios.
The likes of the Fiery Furnaces, Daniel Johnston, Final Fantasy, A Place to Bury Strangers, Tegan and Sara, Land of Talk, the Helio Sequence, Nomo, and Alela Diane join Twin Cities locals Fog, Tapes 'n Tapes, Dosh, and others on the Live From Radio K: Stuck On AM 6 CD. Those who pony up the dough can get the set-- as well as guilt-free radio 'til the next fund drive rolls around-- through the station's website right now.
If you're in the area, swing by Minneapolis' First Avenue tonight (October 8) for a Radio K 15th anniversary show featuring Low, Dosh, and more.
