Ill Vibe Theoryis a hip-hop and rnb station that is hosted out of Greenspun Hall on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The show airs on Tuesday’s nights from 11p.m.-1a.m.

Current UNLV students Jocelyn, Kailyn, and Christian are the hosts of this urban weekly radio show. Not only do they discuss different musical artists in hip-hop, they also discuss art, fashion and the overall hip-hop culture. Usually the crew have local Las Vegas artists on the show and interview them to get insight about their craft and occasionally have guests from different parts of the country. Late last year they interviewed a Grammy nominated producer by the name of Jahaan Sweet, who produces for Grammy nominated singer Kehlani.

Music, of course, is the main topic of conversation, but more importantly playing the actual music for listeners to hear is the main part of the show. At Ill Vibe Theory, they do not only play hit songs like most mainstream radio stations do, they play upcoming artists, brand new artists, and songs from other popular artists that would not usually make the radio waves.

The crew also participates in choosing artists to perform for Tuesday Blendwhich is an event that gathers all types of artists in the Las Vegas community to come showcase their work to other art enthusiasts.

The three of these talented students show their passion and drive through this radio show that they have built from the ground up. They are paving a new way to listen to radio, as well as helping create an outstanding atmosphere for hip-hop and rnb in the Las Vegas valley.

Their shows can be listened to on FM radio channel 91.5 The Source, streamed live at KUNV.org/Listen, or download the Track Life Radio app. They are also on Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat under the handle @IllVibeTheory.

  1. Teena,

    You are a complete natural at podcasting. You sounded so professional. I’ve heard of Vibe Theory before from Kailyn, and one of my friends has been on the show. It’s a very cool station. Glad to see you’re giving it some love.

  2. I like how you focused your podcast on something UNLV related! Even though most of us are JMS majors, I think a lot of students forget that we even have 91.5 and that students are able to start their own radio shows right here on campus. I like how their show isn’t all about the music but as you mentioned, the hiphop culture altogether.
