Wayne State students will be in the Student Center promoting International Clash Day from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 7.

The Wayne State College student-run radio station, KWSC-FM (91.9 The Cat), will pay homage to the iconic punk band The Clash on Wednesday, Feb. 7, when it celebrates International Clash Day. Wayne State students will be in the Student Center atrium from noon to 2 p.m. promoting the radio station and The Joe Strummer Fund to prevent homelessness.

Strummer was the lead singer and co-founder of The Clash. As one of the most widely respected bands in history, The Clash promoted anti-racist, anti-fascist, and pro-creative action. Activism was integral to Strummer’s songwriting. The Joe Strummer Fund continues this legacy.

International Clash Day began Feb. 7, 2013, when DJ John Richards of KEXP-FM radio in Seattle played the band’s music during his entire show. The day is a global celebration with radio stations worldwide playing music that inspired, was inspired by, and was created by The Clash. KWSC-FM continues this tradition.
