KUGR Cougar College Radio presents up and coming artist Corey Harper February 16 for an intimate concert at Washington State University.
Harper is originally from Vancouver, Washington, but moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in music. Since then he has toured with artist such as Cody Simpson, Niall Horan, and Justin Bieber.
Harper blends the styles of folk, Americana, country, and blues creating a unique individual style that pays tribute to singer songwriters of the past/present.
In an article about Harper Rolling Stone magazine said, “with vocals that suggest Harper is John Mayer’s breezier fraternal twin, his tunes are a mix of Seventies country-rock touched by Mississippi blues.”
The concert will be held in Studio A located in Jackson Hall on the WSU campus. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. This is a free event and only 65 people will be allowed entrance.
Our esteemed hosting will be Sueann Ramella. Sueann has 20 years of experience with NWPR/NWPTV. In 2000 she became the host of All Things Considered, and then in 2008 switched to hosting Morning Edition. Sueann will be teaching about how to speak so people will listen.
The event is open to all students. Even if you have no announcing experience this is a great place to get started.

Hello from the 2016-2017 Board of Directors!
Last Spring, 75% of our previous Board graduated from the University and moved on from the station to start their careers. In the fall, we found ourselves under new management with several bright, new faces ready to continue the legacy of the graduating Class of 2016.
The 2016-2017 Board of Directors had many accomplishments this fall. At the beginning of the semester, the directors worked together to create the first concert for the station in years, called “Rock a’ Palouse a'”.
The concert was a big hit and a wonderful start for the new semester. It was followed by the “Witchin’ Costume Contest” and the annual Pong Tournament, featuring a prize football signed by the entire WSU Football Team!
The Sports Department had a successful season of broadcasts in Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, and Football. In the beginning of the year, they hosted a Q&A with KUGR alum Art Eckman, who gave them tips to improve their broadcasts. The Department is looking to continue these types of events this Spring, which are open to all students at the University.
A few members of the Board even got the chance to return to the CBI Conference for the second year in a row. Music Director Ellen Gordon, Production Director Jonah Markwith, and Fundraising Director Katherine Barner were able to travel to Philadelphia to attend conferences about college radio, bringing us back a lot of exciting new information.
Many new changes to come soon! We are excited to show you a new face of KUGR College Radio.
This is the last week of mandatory student shows, so please support our DJs and listen in!
– Sarah Allen, GM
