It's College Radio Day! KUCI And Titan Radio Join The Fight To Save Campus Stations
College radio stations have long given a microphone to local musicians and DJs looking for an audience (and people who wanna talk about stuff), but like many awesome campus institutions, they're endangered by the swinging budget ax. Over the past few years, more than a dozen student-run stations across the country have been sold by their universities, usually to NPR or religious broadcasters, and in the shift, the plug has been pulled on some wonderfully weird programming.
"It's time to support creative programming and truly independent content and music you can't find anywhere else," reads the College Radio Day Facebook page. "It's time to start giving back to the stations that help break the bands you love."
