    What song was playing at 6:55pm on February 3rd? It played just before “6th and 34th” by Wolfside. I couldn’t quite make out the lyrics, but I think one may be “I don’t need to breathe I just think back on times before”.

      As far as relaxing voices go, that might have been Little Bubble by the Dirty Projectors

      Or Dirty Looks by Matt Pond PA, which I can’t find a link for!

      1. blake

        It played again today around 4:25PM. I told myself to look it up when I got home but forgot. Haha. And now all I can remember is his singing a chorus of “This is ??????” 3 times in row.

      2. Jeanette Sweetman

        We’re not seeing anything on the logs that matches that description, unless it is either of these (Psychic Twin or The Radio Dept).

        Next time you hear it, I’d recommend taking a look at our web player, which shows the current song playing!

    There was a song on around 9:30am on Thursday (5 Jan) morning. Male vocalist. Part of the chrorus is “…how you say what you say…how you do what you do….”. Wish I had more, but that’s all I remember other than singing those lines the rest of the day.

    There was a song on this morning around 6:30 or so, it was a female singer with a melodic background. Imagine if Crystal Castles had more melody and calm to them. Unfortunately the only lyric I can remember is something along the lines of “sing through the night to you” or something like that. It seemed to be a girl talking about a boy maybe? I can’t find anything online and would LOVE to add it to my hiking playlist. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Around 8:30-9:00 11/6/16 kind of an old school r&b sound with female vocals. I think lyrics were your so strange boy or something like that. Cool song, would love to know the artist.

    It was a brooding instrumental song playing between 2:40-2:47 or so yesterday (10/5/16)… Had a Dark Ambient vibe with abstract female vocals. There was a host speaking prior to the song, but I couldn’t make out what he was saying.

    Great song on Saturday 6/11. Lyrics said something about: “God gave you hands to build your own boat, God gave you feet to find your way home … sing the songs that you like singing” Any ideas on its title & artist?

    BTW, KRUA reminds me of my own show (Freak’s Flying Circus) on a US Navy station back in the 1970s. It was a great experience for me, and I’m sure that KRUA DJs value their air time. Keep up the fine work.

      I’m unable to track down the exact song you’re looking for based on that information, but here is a list of tracks that played within 15 minutes of 6PM on May 27th:

      Tennis – Dimming Light

      The Raveonettes – Sisters

      Miike Snow – Heart is Full
      Exmagician – Plan Retrieval

      Hope this helps.

    This is ridiculous; DJs keep logs of the tracks you play during your sets, then post that on the site (text ideally). Or use the station’s Twitter acct – or your own – to breakdown your playlists. It’s radio DJ house-keeping / we all do it .. thanks.

      We’re a student-run radio station and operate via automation during hours which there are no shows (which you can find on our Broadcast Schedule page), and as such there isn’t someone at the station at all times to cater to your requests. We are in the process of switching to a new webstreaming service that includes a song log. Thanks for your concern.

      Hi Thomas, so sorry for the delay. Our logs showed no record of any songs playing at that time (but evidently one did as you heard it). Luckily, I know that one by heart! You’re looking for Kendrick Lamar – “untitled 02” off of his recent release “untitled unmastered”. The lyric is “Q just bought a brand new McLaren”.
