This week I was selected as a radio manager for next year! Our radio station WJMD has been running for over 40 years, and although we are currently internet-only, we have a great line-up of DJs and shows every weekday. You can listen online and visit the schedule here! I have been hosting a weekly radio show, which has been a lot of fun. Not only have I learned the basics of radio production and been able to share my music taste with listeners, I””””ve been able to meet other people who like music and radio as much as I do. It has been really fun getting to know the other DJs and trading music. I am excited to go on our annual bonding trip in the next few weeks and get to know everyone further.
In the next few weeks, and the beginning of fall quarter, I will be learning how to manage a student organization and how to interact with the administration and other faculty members to produce a good radio program with the other two managers. As of now, I have no idea how to be a successful manager, but hopefully that will change before next year.
I cannot stress enough how helpful it is to know that this campus has a club for so many interests, no matter how obscure. If one does not exist, you can make one. I am really grateful to have had a group of people with which I can share my interests on campus.
