High School Radio Day

Thirty high school radio stations from across the country come together today to celebrate the first-ever High School Radio Day.  HSRD was created by the station manager from Andover High School's WBFH in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan to raise awareness of high school radio and was inspired by College Radio Day.  It is held in May because that was the month that the first high school radio station, WNAS in New Albany, Indiana, hit the air in 1949.

WCWT is from Centerville High School in Centerville, Ohio and is the closest participating radio station to where I live.  They've been on the air since 1971 and currently broadcast with 23 watts at 107.3 FM.
