KUMD-FM on mtvU

UMD student Rick McLean broadcasts from a makeshift studio in an ice house on Fish Lake in January while Sheamus Johnson fishes using a CD during a video shoot for KUMD-FM’s appearance on mtvU. 2013 file/ News Tribune

And here it is: KUMD-FM 103.3’s contribution to mtvU’s “College Radio Countdown.”

This includes The Basement’s picks for Top 10 songs — including Trampled, Polica and Bon Iver — and a 1-minute introductory video that starts set in an ice house on Fish Lake.

As part of this week of UMD-centric viewing/listening includes five local bands that are featured on mtvU’s Tumblr. Looks like they’re dishing them out one at a time. First up: “Rise Up” by Black Eyed Snakes. You know the one: illustrator Brian Barber turns the Aerial Lift Bridge into a transformer and perfectly captures a Mayor Don Ness eyebrow raise.
