Zelda Marathon at Florida International University Radio Station

An article on covers the news of that a college radio station in Florida is the site of a 72-hour Zelda Marathon that's happening this weekend. Two DJs from Florida International University radio station WRGP, along with 3 other friends, are playing the game right now to raise funds for the Child's Play charity.

If you visit the webcast this weekend, you'll be able to see them sitting on the radio station couch! Other than that, I'm not sure what the radio station's involvement is, but it's kind of a cool use of their space.

I'd never heard of the independent music-focused WRGP, aka Radiate FM, before, but I really enjoyed learning about all of their transmitter travails over the years, including hurricane damage, ownership changes, and lots of back and forth with the FCC while they waited for approval for a translator to increase their coverage.

Zelda Marathon? I know the Zelda game but not the run. Must be fun though.
