Less than 25 days until THE…BIG….DAY! Plans are already taking shape across the country. Here’s a brief update about what some stations are planning for College Radio Day on Friday, November 4.
- WMHW-FM Mt Pleasant at Central Michigan University are going to be on-air for 24 hours on both their stations, Mountain 91.5 and 101.1 The Beat. In addition to this, they are going to run a fundraiser for the station. For each donation, they will spend a specified amount of time of the roof of their broadcasting building doing a live remote broadcast. “We hope to raise a bunch of money and spend some time up there on beautiful November day!”
- Z98.7 at Piedmont College are planning to host special radio shows throughout the day from 9 am to 5 pm. Topics and music will be chosen by the different on-air hosts. The staff will also be wearing the College Radio Day t-shirt on campus to celebrate with everyone around the country!
- WPFS 105.9 Proud Fighting Scots Radio at Monmouth College is giving the campus a break from the election so people can vote for what really matters, their favorite WPFS student show! In preparation for the kickoff of their new show featuring new and undiscovered music artists, they will be holding a debate on what College Radio “was meant to be” with some of their radio DJ’s, undercover artists, and more. The college community can take a break before the election and come vote for their favorite student shows and celebrate WPFS’ one year anniversary!
- Blue Storm Radio at Southwestern Illinois College will be broadcasting a variety of material for most of the day beginning at 10:00am including: interviews with college and community leaders, local music, the first live weekly broadcast of “SWIC Radio Cafe” from the Kamm Student Lounge highlighting student organizations and college activities. College Radio Day is also a great time to feature some vinyl – so DJs will be spinning wax throughout the day. Also, this is a significant year for Blue Storm Radio as their college is celebrating its 70th birthday!
