During a spring trip to the Philadelphia area, I visited five radio stations in one day on April 8, 2014. In the morning, I checked out college radio stations WXVU and WSRN and in the afternoon I traveled to high school radio station WHHS before venturing to see Radio 1851 at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia.

Back in April, I visited a bunch of radio stations in the Philadelphia area during one jam-packed day. I've already written about visits to WXVU at Villanova University and WSRN at Swarthmore College. Well, on the same day (April 8th), I also ventured to see Haverford High School's radio station WHHS 99.9 FM in Havertown, Pennsylvania.

Radio Station Field Trip 61 - WRBB at Northeastern University

During my crazy day of radio station visits in Boston and Cambridge on August 6th, my final stop was WRBB 104.9 FM at Northeastern University. I was particularly interested in visiting because my niece Liz Alverson used to DJ there (and another niece started the training program too). I remember listening to her first show and feeling so giddy and proud that perhaps my fanaticism over college radio had spread to her. I think I told her something along the lines of, "this will change your life."
