Radio Station Field Trip

Jennifer Waits (who, according to her profile, has been doing the college radio thing almost exactly as long as I have) has a blog, Spinning Indie, which covers college radio and independent music. She has an ongoing series of posts detailing her visits to college radio stations. I’m a little late to the party, but a few months ago she apparently visited WNUR, so those of you who want more views of the station and more details about the whole enterprise and where it fits in the pantheon of college radio can take a look.

I get a brief mention, and there’s a reference to my musings on the station’s old and new homes that I wrote a couple of years ago when we moved into our current studio.

WNUR’s annual Phoneathon fundraiser runs February 19-26 this year. Your support helps the all volunteer staff of WNUR bring you the kind of music you won’t hear elswhere. Pledge online or by calling (847) 491-WNUR. There are plenty of fine premiums as thank you gifts for your support.

You know what, you know why; just do it!

Update, 2/27 — Thank you! Many of you called over the last week and donated; your support is greatly appreciated. You can now sit back and enjoy the next fifty-one weeks of WNUR programming knowing that you have done your part to keep us on the air.
