As Music Director, I work to scope out new music for the stations I listen to all of the music that gets sent to KJHK from local music artists to record labels. I especially like to find new music by going out to local music shows. Working with these people helps me to cultivate the “KJHK  Sound”. I work with and oversee KJHK’s Music Staff who helps me sort through all the new music; as well as getting them connected to the local music scene and helping to discover new music, bands, artists. But most importantly helping staffers produce music reviews, write articles, and any music-related content for KJHK that they feel proud of and simultaneously work to support local music.

Events & Engagement Director: Caroline Blanke
Email: engagement@kjhk.org

 

As the Events and Engagement Director, I’m the invisible hand behind growing KJHK’s reach and experience. My focus specifically is in planning our wide-scale concerts like Battle of the Beats, that features local DJ’s and Farmer’s Ball, which highlights various local Lawrence artists and bands. I’m also in charge of our Membership Drive, which is a donation focused event. My staff, Street Team, is the promotional force that spreads the word about our events through flyering and tables at local or national shows. My goal this year is to expand the stations reach within the community through more volunteer events across Lawrence and seeping into the cracks of places on campus that student’s don’t hear about us much! I want to make sure that everyone who has a passion for music, broadcast, sports, and concerts alike find a home at KJHK, regardless of their major and make the station more representative to those on campus. If you have anything you’d love to collaborate on, please reach out!
