Rainy Dawg Radio is a non-profit radio station staffed and operated by students at the University of Washington. Though the station focuses on providing quality and diverse programming for the University community, its reach is global, so anyone, worldwide, can tune in to our live stream at
The station is an enterprise of the Associated Students of the University of Washington, and was founded in 2001 to create an educational outlet for students at the UW interested in the broadcast and music industries, as well as providing entertainment for UW students, staff, and faculty.
Since its inception, Rainy Dawg has stayed on the cutting edge of broadcast technology, and worked hard to integrate itself into the UW and Seattle music communities. The station also sponsors a number of on-campus events—often in collaboration with other ASUW entities and enterprises—bringing national and local talent to the campus for one-of-a-kind performances.

We are looking for passionate people with not only a love of music but the stories that come along with it. Strong music show applicants include those willing to play music that hasn't traditionally seen airtime on the radio, or have a strong grasp on geographic/genre/theme niches. RDR isn't a place to put on a playlist and coast; we expect engaging DJs who can connect to their audiences. Strong talk show applicants have a well thought out guideline or theme with unique talking points.
Accepted DJs get a 1 hour weekly slot in our schedule.
Rainy Dawg is currently doing hybrid broadcasting. Due to limited HUB hours, shows will be broadcasted from the studio from 7am-9pm and remotely for the rest of the night and morning. Remote DJs will create and submit their show in an audio mix that staff will queue up on the stream.
