TONIGHT!!! R&B Workgroup Presents: Tell Me Something Good


via R&B workgroup:

There are so many amazing, soulful singers and musicians on this campus, it’s wild that DIY shows at Oberlin skip over the broad R&B genre completely for a scene of majority electronic and punk shows. Let’s revamp the presence of & support experimentalism by students in the r&b/funk/soul genres in the show-going experience in our lives & on our campus!


243 N Main St

9-11pm, FREE

End your last week of classes dancing & singing to renditions of Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, Bilal & Chaka Khan by your amazing fellow Oberlin students.

Tune in every // Wednesday from 5-6pm \\  for the most fun hour of radio that WOBC has to offer!  

We have some awesome updates to share!  We are super excited to announce a partnership with the Oberlin Boys and Girls Club, who broadcast every other Wednesday.  Big thanks to Ms. Ty, all the Boy and Girls Club staff, and, especially, all the kids!  Their first broadcast from last Wednesday is up on the Turn Up! Soundcloud.  That’s right, we have a Soundcloud!  So, if you ever miss a show, don’t sweat it, they’ll all be up right after broadcasts.  Here’s the link:

Also, check out this article at the Oberlin News Center that goes a little deeper into how this program started and how it works. Click here.

Finally, tune in this Sunday (October 11th) at noon to hear The Boys and Girls Club and Apollo Outreach Initiative Radio Extravaganza! It’ll be an hour of interviews, singing, rapping, and music made during the AOI residency at the Boys and Girls Club from the last few weeks. It promises to be awesome.
