Friday, Oct. 2, is also College Radio Day, an annual event highlighting the achievements and diversity of college radio stations across the country. Rocktober will be held at noon each Friday through October and feature a live, local band.
“I think the series is a great way to engage UTA students with the style of music UTA Radio plays,” said Station Manager Samuel Hale. “We’re thrilled to have a rising star like Jacob Furr (playing Oct. 16) be a part our series.”
In addition, Rocktober will feature performances by Black Fossil (Oct. 2), Lindby (Oct. 9) and High Point (Oct. 30). All shows will be held between Wolff Hall and the E.H. Hereford University Center from 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
