Tune in to Turn Up! The Radio ! ! !

Turn Up! The Radio features the incredibly talented voices of Oberlin high schoolers and middle schoolers as they share their music, their opinions, and their experiences.

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.

Remember, tune in Wednesdays 5-6pm!

Staff Picks, Summer Edition

Summer programming is over! The small-but-mighty summer staff are here to share what we’ll be listening to while we’re waitin for fall @ WOBC.

Max, summer engineer: Jamie XX

Off of Jamie XX’s new album In Colour, this song combines an addictive beat, verses by Young Thug, hooks by Popcaan, and holds it all together with extensive sampling from The Persuasions’ 1971 “Good Times” to create one of the best songs of the summer.

 

Nandita, summer station manager: Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment

An ode to Chance the Rapper’s grandma, also feat. a gospel choir and the lovely Jamila Woods. The whole album is good vibes and I’m addicted.
