College Radio Day Is This Friday, November 4th
November 1, 2016 at 5:34 AM (PT)
Over 400 college radio stations are uniting for COLLEGE RADIO DAY, this FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4th, across the UNITED STATES and around the world. The event is a celebration of college radio with support from SEAN LENNON, MEGADETH's DAVE MUSTAINE, THE LUMINEERS' JEREMIAH FRAITES, GRACE POTTER, ALANIS MORISSETTE and more – all of whom have contributed content for a special one-hour simulcast to be played across the country at 2p (EDT).
The aim of COLLEGE RADIO DAY is to raise greater awareness of the many student radio stations that operate around the world by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. Stations across the country are planning special programming and events that include live music from local artists, on-campus festivities and inviting alumni back onto the airwaves.
"We firmly believe that college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved believe passionately in its mission," said Founder DR. ROB QUICKE, a communication professor at WILLIAM PATERSON UNIVERSITY in WAYNE, NJ. "Only on college radio will you hear music and programming you just can't find anywhere else."
