Soundtap Madness - Help Us Win!

We need your help!  Sign in with your facebook stuff at soundtap.com/madness and click on WCBN to stream.

The contest is to see how many listeners we can get using the stream.  Soundtap is totally not-for-profit (not even ads on their page!) and there seems to be no apparent gain for them from this aside from publicity.

We crushed WMBR, but now Rutgers' The Core are giving us a fight.  Wayne State will be tough, if we get to them.

Remember - you have to be signed in for your time to count!

This Just In: WMBR Is Dumb

We are head to head against WMBR in Soundtap Madness, a March Madness style thing or something.

We won't be taken down by those dorks!  If you listen online, you can do that at soundtap, but, actually, we don't really care that much about winning the contest.

All we care about is giving college radio the all out war it's always wanted.  What better place to start than between Ann Arbor and Boston.  

They might have Aerosmith, but we have Iggy Pop.  They might have the New Kids on the Block, but we have Robert Ashley.
