The IRF is pleased to announce Brody Ramone as the winner of the IRF 2013 “Best US/Canada Campus Radio Contest”. Brody took clear first with her weekly “Dirty Glitter” radio show on WBGU, the campus radio station of Bowling Green State University in Ohio, which showcases new sounds from both local and national artists and bands.
WBGU is a student-run radio station, focusing on independent, underground music, and thanks to iBiquity the creators of HD Radio, CMJ.com, and mixcloud.com, Brody will broadcast her show live on-air at the 4th annual IRF, this Sept 4-8 at the Schloss Silhberg in Zurich.
Over 75 submissions from the US and Canada were received via mixcloud.com where applicants were asked to upload their radio shows to demonstrate their skill, personality and music radio knowledge. The panel of judges included the Co-Founders of the IRF, Darryl von Daniken and Miguel Alvarez along with input from the IRF Advisory Board headed by President Dominique Leguern.
“The IRF thanks all the US and Canadian college radio stations and their DJ’s for their participation in our second contest. We are encouraged that the next generation of radio makers shows such a diversity of talent and dedication to music radio,” said Darryl von Daniken, co-Founder of the IRF. “Brody Ramone’s “Dirty Glitter” is a great example of the fresh music shows the IRF loves to showcase.”

WBGU’s audiences benefit from Brody Ramone’s tremendous talents, and now they will also enjoy all the benefits of HD Radio digital broadcasting.”"
