College rock

College rock was the alternative rock music played on student-run university and college campus radio stations located in the United States and Canada in the 1980s. The stations' playlists were created by students who avoided the mainstream rock played on commercial radio stations; the bands of this category combined the experimentation of post-punk and new wave with a more melodic pop style and an underground sensibility. It is not a genre term, but some common aesthetics among college rock bands do exist. Artists as diverse as R. E. M. U2, the Cure, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Camper Van Beethoven, the Smiths, XTC, the Smithereens, The Replacements, 10,000 Maniacs, Pixies became some of the better-known examples by the close of the 1980s. By 1988, some college rock artists had begun to gain mainstream recognition with several having singles reach the Top 40 portion of the Billboard Hot 100; the CMJ New Music Report, a publication that reported on the scene, created a chart which measured popularity of artists played on college radio.

The journal's charts were used by other media. In September 1988, Billboard introduced the Modern Rock Tracks chart which monitored airplay on modern rock and college radio stations. Several college rock artists were successful on the chart during its first few years in existence. By the 1990s, the use of the term "college rock" for this style of music was replaced with the terms "alternative" and "indie rock". Many 1980s college radio music directors went on to have successful careers in the mainstream American music industry

Cleveland Circle station

Cleveland Circle is a surface light rail station on the MBTA Green Line "C" Branch, located in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, at Cleveland Circle. Cleveland Circle station is handicapped accessible, with raised platforms to accommodate low-floor trams; the Beacon Street line opened in 1889. Around 1932 – in conjunction with the opening of Kenmore and the new portal to Beacon Street, the 61 Lake Street-Lechmere via Beacon Street route was cut back to Reservoir, at the Reservoir Carhouse. Around 1947, the terminus was redesignated Cleveland Circle after the adjacent traffic circle, to differentiate it from the nearby commuter rail station – which, twelve years would become a streetcar station itself. Although Cleveland Circle is no longer a traffic circle, the station retains its name. In the early 2000s, the MBTA modified key surface stops with raised platforms for accessibility. Portable lifts were installed at Cleveland Circle around 2000 as a temporary measure; the platform modifications - part of a $32 million modification of thirteen B, C, E branch stations - were completed around 2003.

In May 2007, the MBTA opened a wooden "mini-high" ramp on the outbound side at Cleveland Circle. The platform allows wheelchair-using passengers to deboard from high-floor streetcars at the stop.
