Here’s how to promote your station and HD Radio: with an open house.

Hundreds of visitors turned out for the first such event on Sunday for the HD2 channel for WAMU(FM), Washington, which airs “Bluegrass Country.”

WAMU staff gave studio tours for more than 300 visitors, and listeners also heard bluegrass bands on the lawn, according to Richard Cassidy, director of content operations for WAMU.

Ibiquity Digital staff brought car demos, handouts of HD Radio facts and radios for display.
