October 4th Is College Radio Day!

October 4th Is College Radio Day!

This year we’re going to try something new at WMHB. On October 4th, we are participating in College Radio Day! The aim of College Radio Day is to raise the profile of college radio stations across the world and encourage increased student participation in the medium of college radio. The day is also designed to encourage people who would not normally tune into their local college radio station to do so, and hopefully stay listening because they like what they hear! Above all, the day is a celebration of college radio that reminds people, on and off campus, that college radio is still alive and kicking on many campuses across the country. This Friday, I encourage you all to check out our programming available at or tune into 89.7FM any day of the week!

If you’re interested in hosting a radio show or reserving a slot on the air for a podcast, contact Luke Kelly, our Training Director at

If you’re interested in helping out our reconstruction of the music library by adding some sick new new beats, shoot me an email at
