Introduction from the General Manager

A lot of people use (and overuse) the word “disruption” when talking about the state of the media today. That in one way or another, the internet is disrupting every legacy media outlet. Newspapers have certainly been hit the hardest in the transition to digital.

But radio is changing, too. Streaming services like Pandora, Spotify, etc. are real competition for FM radio. Most radio stations haven’t really embraced this transition yet, and most of their websites basically look like a promotional tool for their radio station. Ours did before now.

That all changes with this new site. We’ve kept the terrific features of the old site: what’s playing now, searchable past playlists, and two weeks’ worth of archived shows. And we’ve also added some terrific new features: Live chatting with the on-air host and other listeners. A well-curated calendar of upcoming concerts and community events. And most importantly, we’re publishing articles and videos on a regular basis to connect you to the local music scene.

But this isn’t just to keep up with the changing times. It’s about our mission to provide adventurous, eclectic music, to be a hub of the local music & cultural scene, and to be a communications link between the University and surrounding communities. This website is a new tool, but the project is the same: providing excellent and meaningful content to you, connecting you to your community, and helping you to experience and discover great music.

Oh, and one more thing: this site looks great on your mobile device. Be sure to save it as a desktop link. It’ll look and feel just like an app – except you don’t have to download anything.
