A few weeks ago on my summer family vacation road trip to the Pacific Northwest, I managed to visit a few radio stations. My first stop was to University of Oregon's college radio station KWVA-FM in Eugene, Oregon. An active station with around 150 volunteers, it's known for its array of music, talk, and sports programs and on the day of my visit it was doing an all-day live remote broadcast from a local festival. Slated to move in the next year, there's no word on what will happen to the station's sticker-covered cabinets.
