The newest KBUU jingles were composed and produced by Tyler Burkhart. Burkhart is a freelance composer, arranger, producer, engineer, and percussionist located in Berkeley, CA. His deep passion for music brought him to Humboldt State University, where he pursued a degree in Percussion Performance. This combined with his interest in electronic music production made him a great candidate for composing the jingles for Radio Malibu.
The original 99.1 KBUU Radio Malibu jingles were written and recorded by a trio of composers. At KBUU’s beginning, a group of young music students at Humboldt State University were hired to compose and produce a set of jingles and stingers for the station. The trio consisted of Tyler Burkhart, Erin Laetz, and Kevin Amos.
