The students are for the most part on their way out for the summer months, and we congratulate those walking at graduation over this weekend for all of their hard work over the past few years. This also means it’s time for the summer to get started here at WHRW.
The official schedule will kick off Monday morning. For returning members, as well as those who are interested in joining the station, we will be having a meeting in the station lobby (University Union, room WB06) at 5 PM on Monday, 5/22.
Today (5/8) marks the end of WHRW’s spring semester. The station now enters a “sign-up” period where DJ’s can take open slots. Some will be in different spots than normal, so tune in to see if there’s anything new. Many talk shows will be continuing through this week from 4PM-7PM. We will also be conducting technical exams for our DJ’s from 5/8-5/13 from 11am-4pm. If it sounds a little weird on air during those times, that is why.
Great to have Paul Tauterouff here for the first couple of hours. Had a good chat about the local music scenes, how bands can help themselves and the important work organizing Rock Against Suicide.
