College Radio on iTunes

A few reviewers this week wrote praising the revised college radio section in iTunes and waxing nostalgic about their own college radio days. The offerings here are quite slim when you consider the huge number of college radio stations online, but it's a start.

Here are the 10 stations chosen by iTunes (generally indie-oriented, but not all of which are even college radio stations, by the way!):

All Independent Radio (New England Institute of Art, Brookline, Massachusetts)
Flat Foot Records (Valencia Community College Music Technology Program, Orlando, Florida)
Fresh Air-The Alternative (University of Edinburgh, Scotland student-run alternative radio)
Goucher Student Radio (Goucher College, Towson, Maryland)
Indie Pop Rocks! (SomaFM--indie music, but not a college station)
WIBS (Intercollegiate Broadcasting System radio network)
WLIU-BK (Long Island University, Brooklyn, NY)
WLMU (Le Moyne College, Syracuse, New York)
WMHB (Colby College, Waterville, Maine)
XTSR (Towson University, Maryland)

I wonder how and if they will expand this list? Of course, you can still listen to loads of other college stations on iTunes, even if they aren't listed here.
