Radio Station Visit #126 - WXJM at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA

College radio station WXJM was a must-visit station for me, as I'd long been aware of the DIY festival, MACROCK, that the station launched 20 years ago. Although the music event is now run by a separate organization, WXJM staffers are still quite involved with MACROCK every year, including the 2017 edition, which is coming up in a few days.

Today, WXJM is housed in the back of James Madison University's public radio station, although its operations are worlds apart. Run by students, WXJM embraces under-represented artists and is a champion of the Harrisonsburg, Virginia music scene.
