Radio Station Visit #148 - WVKR at Vassar College

Vassar College radio station WVKR-FM beams its signal across multiple states from its Poughkeepsie, New York headquarters. Run by students, the station also airs many long-time programs hosted by non-student volunteers, from several polka music shows to Voices Beyond the Wall: New York Prison Talk Radio.

With a large collection of LPs and CDs, WVKR is focused on providing an outlet for underexposed music. I was also charmed by its collection of whimsical mementos and WVKR's dolphin-shaped shower radio.
