I just found this great website, Slicing Up Eyeballs, which compiles news related to classic 1980s sounds and describes the music as: "...once relegated to campus radio, pioneering commercial stations like San Diego's 91X and the Sunday night ghetto of MTV's '120 Minutes'..."
Ah, yes....the pre-commercial alternative "college radio" moment....
There's been a bit of that 1980s college radio nostalgia happening at my station, KFJC, as DJs from the past have been hitting the airwaves reminiscing about visits from U2, drunken interviews with XTC, bad behavior from the Go-Go's, and visits from the Ramones and Dead Kennedys. Take a look through the KFJC archives to listen to hear music from the past and catch some of these over-the-air memories (especially Clone and Cory on September 9th). Archives are only up for 2 weeks.
