At KINK, we have a passion for music! All styles, all eras -- you name it and somebody on the staff is an expert.
We particularly love finding great new bands and songs and introducing them to you. “Music Discovery” is a big part of what radio used to be about. We think it still SHOULD be. That’s why we’re introducing you to a new feature called The Ten O’Clock News.
Each weeknight on The News, I’ll play new songs from new and established bands and deep tracks from KINK’s enormous new music collection. We’ll cover all the news that’s fit to report, including new music by bands like London Grammar, Dr. Dog, Chvrches, Polica, Jake Bugg - plus deeper tracks from Vampire Weekend, The Lumineers, The Mowgli's, Beck, and more!
You’ll find all of this and more as we discover new music together on KINK’s Ten O'Clock News. Your Portland source for music discovery. Tune in weeknights at 10pm on 101.9 KINK.
