College Radio Watch: Happy College Radio Day

Happy College Radio Day! Today is a celebration of all things college radio and in honor of that, we devoted this week’s Radio Survivor syndicated radio show/podcast to the topic of college radio.

Touring WVKR and KDVS

Tune in to this week’s Radio Survivor show to hear not only about College Radio Day, but also to catch more details and audio from my tour of college radio station WVKR at Vassar College.

Earlier this week, I posted my field trip report from my visit to college radio station KDVS at University of California, Davis. This brings my total number of college radio station visit reports to 102!

One of my favorite things to do is visit college radio stations. The next best thing is to listen, which I encourage you to do today in honor of College Radio Day. If you are looking for ideas about stations to check out, take a look at my full list of radio station tours.
