An under-utilized feature on Radio Survivor is the free Classified Ads section on the upper-right side of the website. Our dream is that people will post radio-related events, job opportunities, requests for equipment, and more. I often run across people who are looking to find radio equipment for new stations and frequently hear about radio events that others are hoping to promote (conferences, radio station benefits, etc.), so the classifieds could be a useful clearinghouse for these announcements.
This week I heard from someone at a college radio station in Florida who is looking to save some money during the upcoming CMJ Music Marathon in New York City by having their college radio DJs share hotel rooms with students from other stations. We just added a classified ad for this and if you are interested, definitely contact the folks at Osprey Radio. If they don’t find some people to share rooms, they may not be able to go to CMJ due to the expense.
And, if this isn’t of interest, think about placing your own ad. Here are some of the things that I’d love to see posted:
-Radio equipment for sale, for free, or wanted
-Radio job postings (from job seekers and employers)
-Upcoming radio conferences and events
-Radio-related calls for papers for journals, books, conferences
