Defeated, you settle on something you can stand to listen to one more time and promise yourself you’ll look for some new, fresh music when you get home, but where? Pandora’s recommended every artist in her box and the radio is little more than a glorified stream of commercials.
Well, look no further than your friendly Titan Internet radio station.
Since its establishment in 2001, Titan Radio (www.titanradio.org) has been broadcasting an eclectic mix of music, talk, sports, news and comedy to audiences worldwide.
The student-run, non-profit operation is a torrent of divergent, alternative programming you won’t find on your FM dial.
Aside from the occasional shout out to their supporters, they’re virtually commercial-free.
“Since we’re currently working under Titan Communications, our programming changes every semester,” General Manager Grant Mueller said. “We play a lot of new and alternative music.”
If you are looking for a weekly digest of oddball news and playful banter -
Program Director Danny Hauger hosts “Titan Talk” on Tuesdays from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m., a show highlighting the local, national, and pop culture news of the week.
He’s interviewed a variety of guests from Stu Cook, bass player for Creedence Clearwater Revival, to Ingrid Croce, wife of the late famed folk singer-songwriter Jim Croce, and plans on inviting more to the studio this semester.
With four years of broadcasting under his belt, Hauger has now branched out into a new field of topics.
“I’ve been doubling as sports director,” said Hauger. “We started with basketball broadcasts last semester, we’re continuing with live commentary of every game this semester too.”
One look around the station will have you sold on the positive learning environment Titan Radio provides.
“It’s a good experience for people to come in no matter what their major is,” said Mueller, a business major himself. “It has a lot of personal growth potential.”
