Support Your Local Internet Radio Station

There’s a lot of radio stations on the dial here in DC, but you’ve got to admit that none of them really capture the adventurous, never-say-die spirit of Arlington’s Clarendon neighborhood. Thankfully though, the internet is now providing a solution to our Clarendon-less radio needs. Yes, there is now an Clarendon-based internet radio station unsurprisingly called Radio Clarendon.

Radio Clarendon doesn’t really have much of a theme. Like your average college radio station, it seems to be just a mish-mash of whatever the people willing to be DJs are interested in playing. They exist purely on donations and selling logo merch from their web site. Business must be pretty good though because they seem to be able to afford an office right on Wilson Blvd.

They are accepting applications for new DJs, so if there some genre of music that you feel is underrepresented in the DC Metro Area (an area with a dozen colleges and not a single decent college station btw), I’m sure they’d be interested in hearing from you. (If I had more time on my hands, I’d definitely offer to host a post-rock show)

The best part is that no matter where you go in the world, you can take the sounds of Clarendon with you by just tuning into the Internet. You won’t get that kind of service if you live in Reston or Adams-Morgan.
