Soundtap Madness Listening Tournament Starts Today

KWVA has been selected to participate in the “Soundtap Madness” college radio listening tournament for a 2nd year. We did pretty well last year and made it to the semi-finals. This year, Soundtap has made some improvements, including shorter rounds (just two days instead of three), making mobile devices compatible, and changing their selection criteria. KWVA is seeded #3 in our region, super exciting!

The tournament starts today, so be sure to go set-up your account and get ready to listen to KWVA via Soundtap… only listeners who are logged in to the Soundtap interface will count for the listening tournament. There are no commercials and this is not a profit driven venture, just a fun way to engage people in college radio listening.
