Podcast #39 – Is College Radio Too Small for Its Own Good?

Is college radio too small for its own good? Or is its smallness a hidden asset?

Those are the questions we take up this week with guest Ken Mills. He’s a radio consultant who works with non-commercial, commercial and college stations. Ken explains why he thinks college radio is hampered by its smallness in a spirited discussion with our college radio correspondent Jennifer Waits, along with hosts Eric Klein and Paul Riismandel.

Then, Eric shares some audio from the antenna raising for the new LPFM station Portland Freeform. He discovered that many of the new station’s volunteers were inspired by their college radio experience, and he shares some of their comments.

We need a new tagline for the show. Please help us come up with one sentence–that we can say in one breath–that describes what we do. Leave us a comment, or tweet us with your suggestion using the hashtag #radiosurvivortagline.
