World College Radio Day 2020

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! Now in our 9th year, we’ve already had some great success and the backing of some great people also!

Every week you can visit Angel’s Notch, a quiet little valley on the border of the US and Canada. – – Hi, I’m Annie. My husband Andy and I own The General Store there. When you stop in, I’ll serve you some coffee, something fresh from the oven, and I’ll play you a tune. That’s because I run a little radio station out of the store, which I call “Welcome Radio”. Hear music from the 20’s to the 2000’s with skits, interviews and storytelling.
