Anchorage Night Report, All Bumper Music

From haunted houses in Mountain View neighborhood to drifters wandering in from the Lower 48, Anchorage Night Report is an Alaskan radio show that covers the most creepy and unusual topics — most of them local to our state. Your host, Jade Jackson, discusses bizarre news, talks to local guests, and plays catchy bumper music. Listeners are also welcome to call in with their questions, comments, and stories for the last hour of the show. Plays Sunday nights from 8 to 10 PM.


Statement From KRUA’s Station Manager

Last Saturday, February 10th at approximately 11 PM, KRUA received a complaint regarding a late night talk show broadcast in which two KRUA volunteers were expressing racially derogatory views. KRUA took this matter very seriously, and after meeting with the volunteers, we have decided to discontinue the show on which this took place. This broadcast did not meet our standards or reflect KRUA’s values, and the use of our radio platform to express these views will not be tolerated, now or in the future.

-Wright Franklin, KRUA Station Manager

Cry Cry Cry | Wolf Parade

Cry Cry Cry | Wolf Parade

Album Review by James Kendall

Wolf Parade return after a seven-year hiatus with Cry Cry Cry. It’s a solid alternative-rock album that doesn’t stray too far from their established sound but still feels fresh. My favorites are: “You’re Dreaming,” “Incantation,” “Valley Boy,” and “Lazarus Online.”

I Tell A Fly | Benjamin Clementine

I Tell A Fly | Benjamin Clementine

Album Review by James Kendall

“In little words – it’s a story about two wandering flies finding fleet.
I am neither a politician nor prophet but,
an artist who creates to only entertain is no better than a con.
I hope this album fulfills its purpose.”

– Benjamin Clementine about his new album, I Tell A Fly.

Benjamin Clemetine’s sophmore release, I Tell A Fly, is like a musical piece of theatre for your ears. Sit back and enjoy the experience with Ben’s unique musical style guiding you through an unforgettable album. My favorites are: “Jupiter,” “God Save The Jungle,” “One Awkward Fish,” and “Ave Dreamer.”
