For those of you who haven't heard, MPR will be launching a new format (to go along with its News and Classical stations) in the coming weeks. They bought the old WCAL 89.3 in northfield. That station was previously owned and operated by St. Olaf. Anyways, MPR is branching out, with the launch of this new station, into the local/indie genres. The new station will be launched Monday morning, January 24th at 9:00 AM.

Needless to say, I'm *incredibly* excited about this launch. Now only to wait to see what the first song is on Monday morning...

Edit...
MPR has a blog up here, to which they're posting updates about the progress of KCMP. If you look close, you may even see a few posts I've made there.
