So far the trip has been a great experience. Day 1 started with a few delays, missed connection flights, hotel mix-ups, and being tired of sitting. The day ended with a rooftop party with downtown Manhattan as the backdrop (view pictured below). Co-Sign Promotions had some great bands lined up on the roof of Output in Brooklyn. After that we wandered the Washington Square area and ended up in a basement comedy club.

Day 2 included some wonderful insight from the Music Director’s panel. Several MDs from stations discussed topics important to college radio, and took questions from audience members. The main showcase for us last night included powerful performances from London art rock trio, Shopping, and Rhode Island punk band Downtown Boys.

Todays plans include karaoke, International Day panels at the conference hotel, a New York Islanders hockey game, and plenty of music.

We still have a couple of days left, so check out @RSURadio on Instagram for more images from CMJ 2015 and New York City.
