In addition, stay tuned to WOBC throughout the day for news and updates on today’s events and actions. On a day like today, community radio stations reveal their importance as essential outlets for communication and news within the communities that they serve.
UPDATE: WOBC is looking for volunteers to help us maintain a full day of on-air coverage in response to the racist, queerphobic, anti-semitic, and overall discriminatory events of last night and the weeks prior. If anyone is willing to come into WOBC today to discuss individual and community experiences, or to update the airwaves on today’s progress, we welcome you to visit us at the station on the third floor of Wilder Hall 319. Please do spread the word — Anyone with interest in joining the conversation can and should. If convenience is an issue, feel free to call into the station at 440 775 8139; we can put you on the air over the phone. Our goal is to have our community discuss these issues (as casually or formally as feels natural) for every hour of today’s broadcast. We encourage you to forward this message to any list serves you have access to, or individuals that may have interest in participating.
From Oberlin Musician, De’Sean Jones: “In support of Our Solidarity Movement, I am offering a song that I arranged, as I feel that song embodies the message of our hearts as a collective…”
