College Radio Watch: Happy College Radio Day

Happy College Radio Day! On this week’s Radio Survivor Podcast we chat with College Radio Day founder Rob Quicke. Recording the podcast was the perfect way for us to celebrate the day, although college radio is on my mind 365 days a year.

How are you celebrating College Radio Day? One of my favorite things to do on this day is to tune in to college radio stations from all over the world. There’s even a special World College Radio Day marathon in which stations from all over the world are doing sort of a relay-style broadcast, passing the torch from one station to the next throughout the day.

For those of us in the United States, the World College Radio Day Marathon actually started last night, with broadcasts from stations in New Zealand, the Philippines, Sweden, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and more. The schedule can be found on the World College Radio Day website, with the marathon continuing today in Costa Rica, Ireland, and more.
