i’ve been so busy, i hadn’t had time to properly announce the news…
Coog Radio is finally up and running!
check out the first entry i wrote for our website:
After nearly five months of hard work and preparation, the University of Houston’s first student-founded and student-run radio station, COOG Radio, is NOW STREAMING LIVE!One of the station’s main goals is to promote music, art, culture and social responsibility, both within the UH community and throughout the city. Houston, famous for its diversity, boasts an equally diverse music scene. COOG Radio’s student DJs aim to promote and portray this diversity through their live radio broadcasts. COOG Radio also hopes to make a point of featuring and promoting local musicians and artists, further ensuring the exposure of new visions and sounds to its listening audience.
The COOG Radio staff is not only excited about the chance to broadcast new, quality music, but also inspired by the opportunity the station gives students to be heard. In addition, COOG Radio hopes to not only encourage support of local businesses, artists, musicians, and the assistance of those in need, but also instill a sense of social responsibility and home-town pride in University of Houston students.
