My name is Fiona and I’m a co-specialty music director at KUPS. I’m a senior from Portland, OR majoring in Politics and Government with a U.S. emphasis and an African American Studies minor. I’ve had a show since sophomore year and have worked at the radio station since junior year.

Because I don’t play instruments or sing (in front of people), I express my musical interests through sharing what I like on air. I listen to many genres and can’t possibly narrow down what my top picks are, so you’ll have to swing by my office hours if you ever wanna chat about tunes !

Hey! My name is Evan and I’m a Senior from Salt Lake City, Utah majoring in English and minoring in Communications. My music taste really is all across the board (I’m aware it’s cliché and a cop out, I’m sorry).

I spend most of my free time drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee and staring at lines in books for unhealthy periods of time. Come and talk with me about whatever you’d like, music or otherwise!

Hi! I’m Hugh, and I’m a sophomore from Massachusetts. This is my first year on Core Staff and second year as a KUPS DJ, although I’ve been doing radio for quite some time. I enjoy all kinds of music but I’m most knowledgeable about indie rock, hardcore, and metal. Aside from radio, I’m a musician and writer, and have been playing in various punk bands around the northeast for a few years now. I drink far too much Arizona iced tea.

Talk to me about your scene phase.
