...although under the radar for most Daytonians, Wright State University's WWSU
college radio station still operates as a strictly independent radio station serving the Miami Valley. By our count, that's a pretty important thing. While the signal may lack the ferocity of some others in the area, you can always tune in online
to check out what they're doing. In many cases, they're supporting Dayton music in a big way. Over the years the station has not only played local music, they've also hosted local bands for live in-studio performances. Pretty cool stuff. Well, as you can probably imagine, alumni support for Wright State rarely trickles down to the lowly radio station, so they're putting out a benefit CD to help cover operating expenses. Tonight the station will be hosting a show at the newly re-christened Rathskellar (in the Student Union) featuring performances from such notables as Vanity Theft
and The Northwest Ordinance
. They've also put together a nice little CD sampler of local music featuring the aforementioned bands, as well Hospital Garden
, The Turkish Delights
, Smug Brothers
, and many more. The show starts early (7 pm), so head on down and support a great local media outlet...
