The Fall 2014 programming season is now underway, and that means a new staff to get to know! Here are the first staff picks of the year – some of their favorite tunes from their respective genres.
Mayowa and Marcelo from International: The AfroBeatles – Get Back vs. Colonial Mentality
In Mayowa’s words, “It’s part of a larger project called the AfroBeatles, which is sort of an alternate reality where Fela and the Beatles merge and travel across the world promoting peace, freedom from political corruption, and lots of other dope things.”
Ivan from Freeform: U.S. Maple – Letter to ZZ Top
Nate from Classical: Leontyne Price sings Samuel Barber’s “The Monk and his Cat”
WOBC Oberlin, 91.5 FM, Oberlin College & Community Radio is back! Fall programming has commenced and WOBC is still:
airing Democracy Now! weekdays at 4 PM
airing returning WOBC favorites like Live from Studio B, the World Famous Meeko Show, Chameleon Radio, Big Surf Radio, and more
airing original news segments about Oberlin and the world
full of themed nights – punk on Wednesdays, electronic on Thursdays, hip-hop on Fridays, and metal on Saturdays
giving voice to more than a hundred student, faculty, staff, and community DJs
Plus, we’ve got some new things in store this semester, like new themed sections (International block weekdays 1-2 PM, and the Wednesday morning talk block), guest speakers, new community events, and of course many, many awesome new shows.
We will be having our next installment of our COVER BAND SHOWCASE on Saturday, July 26th. if you would like to participate, please email us at email@example.com with:
the people in your band
the band/musician you would like to cover
your band name (historically these have been spin offs of the original name, such as Shakir A’Neal, the Shakira cover band)
your set list
*by this friday, July 18th*
(this will give bands a week to practice)
*We cannot guarantee spots to all who express interest, so please be thoughtful in your selections*
Also, please know that people applying DO NOT have to have a summer or be affiliated with the station! So if you have some kids you tutor who you wanna do a band with, or you know your grandma would be down to perform her rendition of a the clash, or you just have friends you know are interested, by all means, let them know.
