Mount Holyoke College’s WMHC, the oldest historically female-run college radio station in the nation, was recently featured in an article in The Panoptic magazine about the importance of diversity in music.

“College radio exists as one of the few spaces where females and/or gender nonconforming individuals can safely express their views and foster a community,” the article said.

Also included were quotes from Mount Holyoke students, including one who said, “I had never heard of college radio until I got to MHC, I was intrigued by the fact that you could have your own real radio show on the air. I went to the info session, and toured the radio station, and I knew I wanted to try it out, it looked so cool to me, something I had never seen before.”
