College radio stations have long given a microphone to local musicians and DJs looking for an audience (and people who wanna talk about stuff), but like many awesome campus institutions, they're endangered by the swinging budget ax. Over the past few years, more than a dozen student-run stations across the country have been sold by their universities, usually to NPR or religious broadcasters, and in the shift, the plug has been pulled on some wonderfully weird programming. 

Kids just want their radio back. Today is the inaugural College Radio Day, a national party on the airwaves with about 350 stations joining in with special programming--live music, interviews and giveaways. The goal is to encourage people to tune into their local college radio stations, and hopefully program them permanently into their dials.

Rock Bottom Perform at 420 Freestyle Rap Session on KUCI


It's not uncommon for a sufficiently skilled hip-hop crew to nudge their way onto college radio and spit a couple verses over the airwaves. But this video of San Clemente/Laguna Nigel rap trio Rock Bottom (featured in last week's Locals Only column) let's us know that the group's crazy-off-the-cuff skills are on a whole different level. 

After the jump: Check out Part 2 of this fierce freestyle session.
