Spinning Indie Radio Station Field Trips

Beginning in March 2008 I set out to visit as many college radio stations as I could all over the country. For the most part, if I have plans to travel out of town I will attempt to visit a nearby station.

In January, 2009 I turned my attention closer to home and scheduled trips to five college stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. So far, the furthest I've traveled was to Ireland, where I visited a university station in Galway.

Although I've expanded my travels to include community radio stations, commercial stations, unlicensed low power station, a high school station, and a religious station; my focus still remains fixed on independently-minded radio.
