College Series - Loyola Marymount
My niece just graduated from Loyola Marymount (LMU), located in Los Angeles. She was (and still is) a deejay for the campus radio station, KXLU, which she tells me is known as one of the best campus radio stations in the country. I take her word for it! One thing the station is known for is a program "Demolistens", in which only demo tapes are played. The station claims it was the first to air the music of more than a few of today's top bands. (Here's a link to my niece's play lists.)
For spring vacation, each year for four years, my niece would bring a friend or two and come stay with us in San Francisco. On the last visit, with two of her radio station pals, Ali and Pascal, they left me a KXLU snuggie. It's black with a tasteful, if too small, KXLU logo on it. One of the best house guest presents of all time!
