New and Old Media Alike, Support WRVU
A recent post on renowned ‘New Media’ music blog TheSoundofIndie, makes some great points on what is important to having college radio on campus — the real world experience to the students. College radio, whether it is from WRVU, KUSF, KTRU, and others is vital to the University experience and would be a crime to future students to unnecessarily take it away. Thanks for the insight The Sound of Indie!
Excerpt from The Sound of Indie post:
I can definitively say that this website would not exist without
college radio. Not only did college radio mold my musical tastes and
world view, it was also my first experience in volunteer coordination,
event planning, budget writing, fundraising and dealing with an
advisory board. I’ve found the skills I gained from working and
volunteering for a college radio station much more useful than the
ones I received from my completed Psychology degree. Adopting
the less popular/more expensive 'online-only' broadcast format
would greatly diminish the quality of the volunteer experience and
do an extreme disservice to the student bodies of these universities.
