2010 CMJ Music Marathon Preview and College Radio Awards Nominees

2009 CMJ College Day at NYU

Next week the CMJ Music Marathon hits New York City and the surrounding areas from October 19 through 23. The annual college radio/indie music schmooze-fest will include music showcases, panels on the music industry, a special day-long College Day just for college radio DJs, a film festival, Entertainment Business Law Seminar, and a new music and gaming conference called CMJ Play.

I’ve attended CMJ a number of times over the years, including the past two years (which I covered extensively on Spinning Indie and Radio Survivor). This year, unfortunately, I’ll just be monitoring the festivities from afar.

The big highlights for me are the College Radio Mixer and College Day, in which folks from college radio stations get the chance to meet and share stories about their experiences at different stations. At the conference participants can also vote on nominees for the CMJ College Radio Awards and the winners are feted during College Day.  Over the summer anyone who reports to CMJ was able to nominate stations and individuals for these awards and the finalists were announced on October 4.

Here’s a partial list of some of the college (and some community) radio stations getting recognized (the voting also includes radio promotion company categories too). If you’re heading to CMJ, be sure to vote for your favorites between October 19 and 21st at the conference. Anyone with a CMJ badge can vote.
