College Radio Watch: Why I Tour College Radio Stations

I’ve written up 68 radio station tours since 2008 and have probably visited close to 100 stations total. Nearly 50 of those visits were to college radio stations all over the country (plus a few in Ireland). My goal has always been to spread the gospel of college radio to not only the masses, but […]

Paul wrote about plans for stations at the Marshall University Graduate College (South Charleston, WV) and at University of Virginia, Charlottesville in his LPFM feature yesterday. In addition to those […]

Last Friday and Saturday I had a crazy lost weekend of marathon college radio consumption, as I was riveted to KFJC‘s live remote broadcast and videostream from the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. Be […]

College Radio Watch: Will College Radio Make You Cool?, LPFM Action, and More News

I was amused reading The Noisey Guide to Being Cool in College, as college radio gets a mention. Although the piece warns against revealing experimental music taste too soon (you might be seen as a hipster) in order to create a better first impression on campus, it does recommend getting a college radio show. While […]
