That's a perfect starting place, Caleb.  "Punk engineers are on the air!!" 

What an engineering school that would embrace that?  Berkeley, maybe?

I love this idea! It may be hard to find enough content to support all those stations, but it would be so much fun. I'd volunteer to DJ the punk rock station. Sorry, I don't have a silly fun for that. Maybe I wouldn't be that good after all.

On my first time at the Exporatorium, I didn't have a child. I wrote a column about it.

You're right, Martin. The Exloratorium is a must-visit for San Francisco visitors with kids.  It's a truly fun introduction to physics that is a hit with anyone, especially those under 16.  I haven't been to the new one yet, but some visitors from England just went and had a great time.   SF's Academy of Science is another must-see destination of that sort; it's less hands-on, but well done.

Tom,

I've never heard of anything else like this. We have a local station here in Boston that run a computer tips program on weekends, but that's more consumer level.

Have you ever been to the Exploratorium in San Francisco? I've been there twice, but not since it moved to the pier. It's Still a cool science museum.

Thanks for this, Martin.  This begs the question of whether we'll start seeing other engineering schools launch stations with Top 40 Engineering Tips, Easy Reasoning, or Pop Tech.  Or maybe some listeners would prefer classical engineering...?
