You might have heard that University of Miami’s WVUM is in the running for an mtvU College Radio Woodie Award. We’ve got love for WVUM, both for their indefatigable insistence that Miami “keep it locked” at all costs and for hosting us on Miami Time for an epic local jam last month. So we’d love to see the station take home a Woodie when the awards show airs live from SXSW in Austin, TX, on March 16. But rather than blithely asking our readers to give WVUM their vote, we asked the station to prove itself in the form of three hand-selected clips. If you like what you hear, head over to the virtual ballot box — before the March 1 deadline! — and crown WVUM as the best college radio station in the land.
First up, we’ve got Diplo manning the decks on Electric Kingdom Live (Thursday nights, 7 -9) hours before spinning for a huge crowd at Grand Central on Dec. 23, 2010.
Next is one of WVUM’s most popular DJs, Laura of Miami, with two hours of disco on Vamos A La Playa (Monday evenings, 5 -7).
Finally, we have a taping of Freedom of the Funk (Tuesday nights, 9 – 11) with Mr. Brown DJing.
