Vocal Chords is the weekly a cappella and vocal music show from the College of Journalism & Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.   The show airs/streams from 8:00-10:00 a.m. CST (-06:00 GMT) on Friday mornings, repeating in the same time slot on Sunday mornings.

Program Note:  The Friday morning live show returned to 90.3 KRNU (on the air and on the web) effective this week.  Both the Friday show and the Sunday replay are now available on the station’s website at http://krnu.unl.edu. Click the “90.3 KRNU” link.  Both shows are also available over the air on 90.3 KRNU, or via the 90.3 KRNU stream in the college/university radio category on iTunes. 

Here’s hoping you and yours had a peaceful Thanksgiving.  Mine was truly one for which to be thankful.

This weekend’s show features the first of our holiday music sets which will continue each week through December, leading up to the annual all-holiday music show on Christmas morning.
