Here’s an article in The Guardian about some ways to combat reader’s block.


Harmonica Segment: Read a book! Or don’t! Try not to read anything at all for a whole day. Or, you know, read something different to rekindle your love for reading. Any of those. Tweet us your experience with reader’s block @hardcoverradio.


Thanks for listening!

This week we’re thinking about universities and colleges! Where did higher education come from and what role does it play in today’s society? 


Would you like a degree in adventure?

CJAM lives in the basement of the University of Windsor. It’s great to be a part of a campus community! If you’d like to volunteer with radio programming, you can contact them through their website. ‘Cause community radio is awesome!




Some suggest that the campus novel is nearing retirement age. What do you think?
