Monday Night Live

Monday Night Live begins LIVE at 9:00 p.m on 88.1FM with a live AUDIO stream here, and live VIDEO stream here from UTVS, or Charter Channel 180 locally in St. Cloud.

Monday Night Live returns for its 33rd season in 2023-24. At least 700 bands have performed on the show going back to 1991–and you can watch some more recent shows thanks to Video On Demand.

Every Monday at 9:00 p.m. during the academic year, we present an hour of live music from the KVSC performance studio featuring the best in Minnesota music. You can revel in the energy of a live band from the comfort of your home! Monday Night Live broadcasts from 9-10 p.m. directly following KVSC’s “The Area” program.

MNL is simulcast on UTVS-Channel 180 in the St. Cloud area. The audio quality on the radio feed is far superior to that of the television, so we suggest tuning in with both if possible. Check out the UTVS Vimeo channel of recent artists.

Here, you can check out the HISTORY of past Monday Night Live guests!

If you are interested in getting on Monday Night Live, please email info@kvsc.org with information about your act and include MP3s or links for us to hear your music!
