We will also be changing our format from classic rock to true college radio, with College Radio Day being the kickoff!”
- “KWTS The One 91.1 at West Texas A&M University is having an Open House for all of those who are in our nine counties that we cover. We will have our DJs available to give tours, demonstrate the equipment, software, and educate the public on our history. Also, we are opening our doors to the Alumni from our great program to come rekindle their memories and dust off their headphones to take a two-hour shift during the day. CRD is a very important day for all of us and we want everyone here to know what it means to us!”
- “KLBC/KCTY at Long Beach City College is proud to announce that the Mayor of Long Beach, CA (Robert Garcia) is scheduled to proclaim Nov. 4th “College Radio Day in Long Beach,” in addition to other addresses from several local dignitaries! We will simulcast the CRD Foundation 24 hr. stream on both stations, only breaking away for our own celebration from 9am – 3pm (PST). We will feature live, LOCAL music (thus, fulfilling the mission of college radio) acts performing at various locations around campus throughout our celebration, simulcasted on both radio stations and an HD live stream on both YouTube and Facebook.”

We will be setup from Noon-6pm. There will be large game roles such as cornhole, giant jenga, giant pong, and yard twister. While we are setup and playing we will have live shows in the studio. All six of our student produced shows will go live for each hour of the day. There shows will play out live on our speakers to campus. This will give them super live reach. Lastly, we will be collecting children’s books for the Tanner ReadER program. Each book we collect will be given to a child that comes through one of three emergency room locations. It is our goal to also help curb adult illiteracy and set students up for success!”
