Earbender featured Playlist #1: WVFS Tallahassee FL "V89"

earbender will put up a good old radio playlist at least once a week henceforth. This week’s chart is from WVFS, Tallahassee, home station of College Radio Hall of Famers Mike Rittberg, Jay Hughen and Chris White.

Their site hasn’t been updated in a couple of weeks, and in social media they are on facebook w/a few different groups, each a few hundred in number. WVFS doesn’t twitter but 273 people in their facebook group and even 71 on Last.fm give them the ability to easily reach a few thousand people. I didn’t join the groups, and I didn’t look elsewhere for WVFS).

If you are into this kind of thing, my friend at Spinning Indie is doing a national survey of college radio stations, featuring one per state.

Incidentally, twitter has upgraded its search functions.
