I’m looking forward to meeting Radio Survivor readers this week at College Broadcasters Inc. (CBI)’s National Student Electronic Media Convention in Minneapolis. I’ll be doing two different presentations on Thursday, October 22nd, one focused on college radio history (at 11am) and another in which I’ll share tidbits from my radio station tours.
On the first panel, “College Radio is Older Than You Think: Celebrating College Radio History” (Thursday, 10/22 at 11am), I will give an overview of college radio’s lengthy history and will share tips for stations hoping to start history and preservation projects. Michael Lupica from Princeton University station WPRB will be joining me and he will talk specifically about the amazing 75th anniversary projects that he’s undertaken at his station, including the WPRB History website.
For my second presentation, “Tales from a College Radio Obsessive” (Thursday, 10/22 at 2pm), I will delve into my radio station tour series. Since 2008, I have visited more than 90 radio stations, the majority of which are college radio stations. I love the culture of college radio and I will share lots of pictures from my travels and will talk about what I’ve learned after all of my extensive touring.
As you might expect, I will also be visiting a few college radio stations while I’m in Minneapolis. I can’t wait for a jam-packed few days devoted to college radio. If you plan to attend CBI, please say “hello!”
