Worldwide List of college/university radio stations

I recently found a comprehensive list of college / university radio stations on wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_c ... o_stations

Nearly all of them are non commercial and offer a wide diversity of programming.

It would be great to refer to this well-maintained list and compare it to RS to ensure we have as many of them in RS as possible.

I recommend NOT deleting college/university stations during school breaks unless the station is clearly gone on a perminent basis. Many stations stop streaming during summer breaks, between Christmas and New Years, or anytime there are no students to operate it... and they resume as soon as the students return.

With Covid, I try to be more patient as many campuses are closed even during September to December.

The same is in fact valid for most of the (seasonal) Christmas stations, broadcasting from around december till january. Question is , do they use the same stream-url the folowing year, but at least by not deleting them, most of the info is there, and only the streams should be checked.

I agree with you, Fonzy. Also, when updating the Christmas or other seasonal streams, it is a good idea to look as those with the seasonal format that have been deleted in the last 12 months as some of them may also come back each year and may have been deleted because they were not streaming during the non-seasonal times.

The list of deleted stations is a good resource that may people don't know to use.
