A special journal edition devoted to college, student, and university radio has just been published by Interactions: Studies in Communication and Culture. Excitingly, the issue is open access and available to all readers.
This is also a special issue as it features original articles by Radio Survivor’s Jennifer Waits as well as by me. Given that many academic articles in radio studies can only be accessed through an institutional affiliation, this is a great opportunity for readers with a casual interest in the academic study of radio to learn about research in the field.
Articles can be downloaded, free of charge, by clicking on the ‘purchase PDF’ link of each article. Below is the issue’s table of contents and you can access the articles by following this link.
