Here Goes Spring 2012!

Welcome back to another great semester on WUSO!

 

We have had our first meeting with the entire new Exec Board, and there are some really great things coming up. Once rush week is over, you can look forward to a new semester of programming and your favorite WUSO shows.

 

First of all, we’d like to welcome our new member of the exec board.  (You can view a complete list of the staff, newbies and old-timers, at the staff page.)

Andrew Bowen has taken over the role of Programming Director. Lindsay Dukes, Rory Eustace, John Mathews, and Stephanie Davis make up a new team of people dedicated to the promotion of WUSO, led by our senior promotion advisor, Amber Reyes. Adam Markins will now be serving as our treasurer, and Nate Dorow as our secretary. Sarah Lawson has assumed a brand new position, Social Chair, working to better connect the WUSO community.

 

On that note, there are info meetings for those interested in becoming a DJ being held on Jan. 24 and 25 at 8pm in Shouvlin 201. You only need to attend one session. Attendance is CRUCIAl for anyone who wants a show. Time slots will be assigned, key cards will be given out, and contracts will be signed.

 

To kick off the semester, Cub Scout pack 49 out of Mechanicsburg visited the station for a tour. They got to see our studios and booths, and even got to shout out on the air during half time of the men’s basketball game! Here are some photos of the WUSO staff members practicing their tour guide skills.

 

Shelly Gregory, General Manager, talks to the pack about how radio waves make it from the microphone to your car radio. 

 Lindsey Dukes, Promotion, and Andrew Bowen, Programming Director, talk to the pack about how programming is selected.

 Sven Isaacson, Engineer, discusses how internet radio works.

About Kate Causbie

Kate is an Art/ Psychology double major (that's the latest plan, at least) who also happens to be addicted to a music. A fan of finding creative ways to use the internet to communicate ideas and information, she helps out with the WUSO web site as needed. Kate loves lots of different bands for the lots of different places they bring her back to, and is terribly indecisive about choosing favorites, but such a list might include Bon Iver, Coldplay, Stars, Andrew Bird, The Tallest Man on Earth, Angus & Julia Stone, Arcade Fire, Regina Spektor, and basically any band from Seattle, for irrational reasons having to do with hometown nostalgia.
