Recently senior Music Director and Remnant worker Ben Carlson decided to change things up by choosing not just to broadcast famous artists but also to highlight Northwestern students, alumni and various local artists around the area. Unlike UNW’s other popular radio station 98.5 KTIS, The Remnant will be featuring musicians who are new to the music scene and attempting to get their music out to reach a larger audience. The concept of featuring lesser-known artists on air is very rare in our mainstream-oriented society today. Most radio stations will not feature lesser-known artists because it is a risk for the station. If the listeners don’t enjoy the newer artists, then the station is held liable for the resulting loss.
