While visiting Denver in July, I had the opportunity to see two college radio stations at Metropolitan State University: student-run Met Radio (tour #106) and WCAS Radio, which is run by the Communication Arts & Sciences Department as a lab for broadcasting students.

Run on automation during summer break, WCAS Radio has student-run shows during the school year, including music, talk and even radio drama. In addition to the current station, the department plans to launch a new sports-oriented unlicensed AM radio station during this academic year.
