OK, it's 6 months away, but I guess it's not too early to get amped up for all of the fun festivities, panels, and performances at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. CMJ is always big with the college radio crowd, but they will have 2 events that will be particularly geared towards college radio staff. A College Radio Mixer takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 21st and College Day will be on Thursday, Oct. 23rd. CMJ is offering some discounted passes to students who sign up by the end of April. Here's the scoop according to CMJ:
"Each year as CMJ Music Marathon takes over New York City, it welcomes college radio representatives with College Day, a full day of programming dedicated to college radio that features performances, refreshments, awards and panels discussing issues unique to college radio. This year's College Day will take place Thursday, October 23. The time-tested tradition has successfully gathered together many radio stations over the years. However, for the first time ever, CMJ Music Marathon will open Tuesday, October 21, with CMJ's College Radio Mixer. This special event will bring together college and non-commercial stations from across the map for a unique opportunity to meet with and befriend peers in a relaxed, pressure-free environment before diving head first into the most educational and entertaining week in music.
CMJ Music Marathon student badges are available now through April 30 at special 'Spring Break' prices. Individual student badges are available for just $135 while purchasing group badges of 10 or more leaves badges at only $120 each.
