Tuesday May 30th




Welcome to RadioU.

This is where you go to find out what’s NEXT.

It’s not about the same ten songs you hear every hour on other corporate-run stations. The music we play is different. It’s the stuff THEY don’t play. It’s where music is going.

Listen live 24/7 for bands like twenty one pilots, Lecrae, The Devil Wears Prada, Emery, and RED. The RIOT with Obadiah and Nikki every morning, RadioU’s Most Wanted, and more.

About RadioU

RadioU is owned and operated by Spirit Communications, Inc., a 501(3) non-profit organization. Spirit Communications launched RadioU in 1996.

RadioU is heard on FM stations nationwide, streaming online, and through our mobile apps. RadioU TV streams online and is also available as a Roku channel and through our mobile apps. Our goal is to provide predominantly college and high school age students with what we believe can be a life-changing message of hope through a wide range of popular music.

RadioU works closely with The HelpLine, an organization that provides prayer and referral services to those in need. Our non-commercial FM radio stations also provide airtime to other non-profit organizations, host and promote events each year to reinforce positive lifestyle messages among area students, and are active voices for public service in the areas they serve.

RadioU, RadioU TV, and this website are licensed by ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and SoundExchange. RadioU, RadioU TV, TVULIVE, and respective logos are registered trademarks of Spirit Communications, Inc.
