String Theory

In the world of physics, String Theory is, at this moment, the most promising candidate theory for a unified description of the fundamental particles and forces in nature... including gravity.
In the world of radio, String Theory is a program celebrating the connectivity of spirit, passion and compelling artistry shared by all the world's musics.

I invite you to join me every Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening in exploring and experiencing this world of musical possibilities!

Thanks for listening! - Kevin Barnes

String Theory  is broadcast every Saturday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. and Sunday evening from 9 to 11pm CST on Jazz 88 FM KBEM 88.5fm, Minneapolis, MN and streams on the internet at .
