A number of college radio stations serve as training grounds for a sister station on campus. That's the case at student-run KLMU at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. An online-only station with roots over AM carrier current, KLMU DJs have considerably freedom compared with their FM counterparts at KXLU. Part training station for KXLU and part student-haven, KLMU has around 50 participants who host a range of music and talk shows.

Radio Station Visit #135 - WKDU at Drexel University

Back in college I was a WKDU listener, so I'd long been eager to visit the Drexel University college radio station. Lucky for me, I was able to tag along on a group field trip to the Philadelphia-based station during the College Broadcasters Inc. conference. The tour did not disappoint and the station was full of familiar college radio ephemera.
