KVSC 88.1 Radio

KVSC has made significant contributions to the arts in our community for many years, but especially in the past three – with their dedicated arts and cultural heritage programming, made possible by the state Legacy fund, which includes the Granite City Radio Theatre at Pioneer Place on 5th, Untold Stories of Central Minnesota, and a Spring Concert series that has brought in Minnesota artists like Trampled by Turtles, Har Mar Superstar, and Jeremy Messersmith.
