With 24 days left to go in its Indiegogo campaign, College Radio Day is hoping to raise a total of $5000 in order to produce volume 2 of College Radio Day: The Album.
When the album is completed, it will be distributed to college radio stations all over the United States. The CD compilation will include two discs worth of music, including some live performances culled from a number of different college radio stations. Students from across the country worked to select the music for the album. Confirmed artists include Wilco, Passenger, Lucius, Jukebox the Ghost, and the Front Bottoms.
The plan is to release the completed album to radio stations in mid-November. In the meantime, the third annual College Radio Day is slated for October 1st. As in the past, it’s a day set aside to celebrate college radio. Stations recognize it in their own ways, with many hosting special events and performances in order to draw more attention to the power of college radio.
