UTA Radio Places Local Bands on CRD Album

Posted 9-13-2013 by Barrie Hill

Two artist submissions from UTA Radio will appear on the upcoming 2013 College Radio Day Album due out Nov. 5.

The Apache 5 and The Breakfast Machine, made up of current and former UTA students, will each have a song featured on the album. It will be released in conjunction with College Radio Day.

“Submissions were solicited from college stations around the country,” said UTA Radio Faculty Advisor Lance Liguez. “We’re thrilled to help not just one, but two, local artists gain some national and international exposure.”

Both bands have been nominated for various local awards in the past, including Best New Artist and Best Vocalist.

Oct. 1 marks the third year for College Radio Day, an event aimed to raise awareness of the many college stations that operate worldwide by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so.

Last year’s event included participation by 585 college stations from 29 countries, including UTA Radio.
