College Radio Day 2019!



This Friday October 4th is World College Radio Day! A special holiday to celebrate the powerful medium that is collegiate radio broadcasting. Over 500+ stations across the United States and around the world will broadcast LIVE for 24 hours to commemorate our special holiday.

Here at Brave New Radio, the original HQ of College Radio Day, we will be broadcasting the full 24 hours! Take a look at our schedule for the day:


College Radio Day is celebrating its 9th year. This year, we have the support from Grammy-winning indie alternative band, The Black Keys, who are the official ambassadors of the event, as well as interviews with bands such as Rise Against, Spin Doctors, Manchester Orchestra and Lacuna Coil.

The theme this year for WCRD is “Hear It First on College Radio” and participating stations will explore and highlight how students create unique programming and content on college radio that is important to them and not heard on any other medium. It is often college radio that gives a spotlight to local stories and issues, as well as playing music that is new and innovative. “Only on college radio will you hear music and programming you just can’t find anywhere else, and it’s the place where people take risks in what they play,” says Rob Quicke, founder of College Radio Day and Professor of Communication at William Paterson University in New Jersey.

The aim of World College Radio Day is to raise greater awareness of the many student radio stations that operate around the world by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. Stations are planning special programming and events that include live music from local artists, on-campus festivities, and inviting alumni back onto the airwaves. World College Radio Day 2019 will take place globally on Friday, October 4. For more information, please visit
