College radio day is coming!

The aim of College Radio Day is to raise a greater, national awareness of the many college and high school radio stations that operate in North America by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. It is hoped that those people who do tune in like what they hear and become regular listeners. The organizers of College Radio Day believe that college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission. College radio is the only free live medium brave enough to play unsigned, local, and independent artists on a regular basis.  Indeed, many famous and successful bands today, owe their initial break to being played on colllege radio. Put simply, college radio is an important part of the North American media landscape  because of its unique and fearless programming.

KMNR will be celebrating College Radio Day with all day road show and request shows. More information will be coming soon so keep your eyes peeled and watch our roadshow calendar. You can find out more about College Radio Day from their website.

The Missouri Miner is featuring various KMNR radio shows in their paper. This week was the Toolbox:

What do you get when you put two music loving, gym going, and bro talking guys on the radio? You get the Toolbox radio show on KMNR from 3-5 on Thursday afternoons. Toolbox is filled with your entire tool needs for the week.

Toolbox is not your average radio show; it strives to go above and beyond. They actually admit that they like Nickleback. Then again, they will say anything to get your blood pumping. Ryan Foshage and Scott Hacker, seniors in Engineering Management, are the bros that take you on your weekly trip down tool lane.

Check out the full article over at the Miner’s website. Checkout Toolbox on Thursdays from 3-5.
