We are proud to announce the theme for this year’s College Radio Day:
“IGNITING THE SOUL OF COLLEGE RADIO”
Many thanks to Paul Crutcher, adviser of XLR Lander Radio at Lander University for the inspiration for this great theme. Paul has produced a special 20-minute documentary called “The Soul of College Radio” that is also going to be featured in our keynote College Radio Day 1-hr Special! We are very excited that this year’s celebration on November 4 will also be our 6th CRD event! We think that this could be our best celebration of college radio yet!

5. PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT CRD!
As we get closer to November 4, please reach out to college radio stations near you and invite them to join this celebration. College and high school radio stations across the country are all welcome to participate in the one day that we come together to celebrate the important work that we do!
Last year was an incredible success, and even included a visit to the White House for a group of students representing the medium of college radio. We were presented with a letter from President Obama declaring his support for college radio! It really was an extraordinary day.
School is back in session, so let’s get to work and make sure that the whole country tunes in to what we are doing on November 4. Let’s be so good, that they never stop listening!
Long live college radio!
– The CRD Task Force!
