Eileen Ivers:

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.”

At last, the WOBC.org redesign has come along

a75b4a89356b9b3f613dab797060e071

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 wobc@oberlin.edu. We can also be contacted through Facebook.

In the meantime, here’s to a great summer full of great programming!

With love (and rockets),

Emma Nash (Webmaster 2015-2016)
