Studio Live

Second Friday of every month, 12-1pm

Hear songs from local musicians as they perform live from the KSMU studios. This hour-long event, held at noon one Friday out of each month, mixes conversation with performance. We'll learn more about these musicians and their love for music, as well as the music itself.

KSMU has also partnered with Barley Wheat & Rye Social House, for the Studio Live Social Hour, an encore performance of that day's artist at the craft cocktail lounge in southeast Springfield. The performance begins at 6 p.m.

Upcoming Schedule:

December 8: Jin J. X

January 12: The Norman Jackson Band

February 9: The Sertoma Chili Cook-Off's KSMU Acoustic Stage Preview

March 9: The Ozark Sheiks

April 13: Failing Minnesota

May 11: The Hook Knives
