KCMU was an Alternative/Indie/College Rock station broadcasting from the University of Washington in Seattle. They went on the air in 1972 at 90.5 FM with 10 watts of power. By 1986 they had boosted their power to 400 watts and added specialty shows including Hip-Hop, Blues, Reggae and Jazz. They also moved one notch down the dial to 90.3 FM. In 2001 the frequency became KEXP, maintaining the format while partnering with the Experience Music Project.
