If you’re going to be in or around Oberlin this summer, you should apply for a summer radio show on WOBC! Fill out the application on wobc.org/apply by Wednesday, June 1st at 11:59pm.
Programming will run from around June 6 – August 12 (subject to change). If you won’t be in Oberlin for the full summer, please indicate so on your application and we can try to work something out. We’ll have a strong sublist going all summer long so if you need to miss a few shows or you’re only able to host a couple, we’ll have you covered! If you can’t commit to a weekly show all summer but want to get on the sublist, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to a great summer at WOBC! Expect lots of BBQs, fun events, and brainstorming for the future of WOBC! If you have any questions or ideas, email email@example.com.
We hope you’ll all ride the waves with WOBC this summer and tune in!!

It has been said that Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin. Indeed, the Grammy-awarded, Emmy-nominated guest has starred with over 40 orchestras, was the original Musical Star of Riverdance, and has played alongside notables, such as Sting, Hall and Oates, and The Chieftains—just to name a few. The founding member of Cherish the Ladies, Ivers musical talent can be found in movie soundtracks such as Gangs of New York and Titanic. She has performed for Presidents and Royalty worldwide. As Ivers’ list of accomplishments can go on and on, one thing is sure that she has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today. As The Washington Post states, “She suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle.”
Great news, everybody: The redesigned WOBC.org has arrived just in time for interim and summer programming! (Sorry it took so long).
Our old look had a good run, but the time is right for a more clean, modern, and mobile-friendly layout. Here are some changes of which to make note:
News, PSAs, and a link to Radioactivity can now be found under “For DJs” in top menu
Radioactivity can also be located in the left-hand menu (bottom of the page on mobile)
Our Contact Form can be located in the left-hand menu
We’re also in the process of adding a page about our long-running, flagship shows, as well as more resources for DJs, including prerecorded Station IDs (under “For DJs”) and a PDF of our station manual.
Our site redesign is still in beta, and we welcome your feedback. Though we are currently in the process of changing over staff, you can direct any comments, questions, compliments, or concerns either through our contact form or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also be contacted through Facebook.
In the meantime, here’s to a great summer full of great programming!
Vault workgroup here! We have some exciting updates.
Our recent Disco party was rip-roaring success, a crowded event with lots of dancing and great DJs. In addition to this event, our group has been putting together a compilation CD of all the best tracks we’ve found in the vault this semester. Below you can find the tracklist — most of these songs cannot be found online, so we encourage people to come in and search for these albums in the station! A great way to get to know the vault. Have a great summer!

Anna Rose Greenberg, Traffic Director and host of ‘Germaniacs’, interviewed Robert Meyer and Ringo Behn of Schramm. Schramm is a German EBM/industrial band known for their energetic live performances and hard-driving beats. Hear Meyer and Behn talk about Schramm’s upcoming album, the EBM/industrial scene, muscle cars, and more!
Anna Rose Greenberg, Traffic Director and DJ for WOBC, recently spoke with Leonid Chernitsky, drummer for the Russian ethno-industrial band MystTerra. MystTerra are known for their energetic songs and creative orchestration.
Anna Rose: What is MystTerra’s mission? What do you set out to accomplish when making your music?
Leonid: Well, it’s our life to play music. I think everybody that makes music for a great part of his life is some kind of a fanatic. Three men in this band have known each other for about 15 years. We’ve played different styles and at last we found what we can do best in music.
There are still a few spots open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings. Deadline is this afternoon at 3pm. No experience is required, please consider applying! Check out the applications page for more details: wobc.org/apply and send any questions to Sophie at email@example.com
