One of my favorite WMCN memory is rolling joints. My favorite show was where we talked about tinder stories.

My name is Hannah, class of 2017, and my show is fine friends(an interview show with friends).

WMCN was in the same location and the vibe was a lot of fun because of all of the progressives.

I had a secret early morning show.

Name? Class? What was your show?

My name is George, class of 1979, and I had a classical music show, summer show, and a show after they went FM. 

 

Where was it located? What was the vibe?

WMCN was located at the old union (2nd flood of cc) with all vinyl!!! Before going FM, people didn’t think it was worth it to have a show.

 

Favorite WMCN memory?

My favorite WMCN memory was when the band (The Mutuals) was opening at spring fest and played at the concert when WMCN went FM.

 

How did WMCN shape your college experience?

it was more fun after went FM.I am happy that we went FM because we could bring music to the community.

I don't play much anymore but music is still one of the most important things in my life.



 

 

 

Name? Class? What was your show?

Andrea, class of '89, and my show is The Great 80s Compilation

 

Where was it located? What was the vibe?

It was located in the Upper CC and DJs socialized a lot. It was cool so you had to prove yourself. 

 

Favorite WMCN memory?

When I accidentally mispronounced Mr. Fucks on air. Other people did illicit drugs/substances in the studio.

 

How did WMCN shape your college experience?

It was a lot of fun and dove-tailed with being an art major. I made posters for my show. I also made mix CDs and recorded mix tapes through the studio.

 

How are you involved with music or radio today?

I am involved through my blog, badassjfro.net, that has articles on music. I am also obsessed with making mix playlists on 8tracks.  It’s stuff you own physically. Spotify doesn’t have obscure bands.



 

 

Name? Class? What was your show?

Daymond, 1991, I had two Summer shows 9-11am on Fridays and it had eclectic throwback stuff

 

Where was it located? What was the vibe?

WMCN was located in the Upper Student Union. It was not as prominent on campus because people didn’t get the signal, and the antenna was very limited. WMCN did host kirk basement bands such as Walt Mink. 

 

Favorite WMCN memory?

 They did events outside to recruit people. They were very clique-ish and hard to break in in the school year so summer was a lot more fun because it was more open.

 

 

How did WMCN shape your college experience?

It didn’t really.

 

How are you involved with music or radio today?

I am not as involved as I'd love to be. I love music and I always have a speaker with me that I took on the road for Mac football games. I also support my kids who did marching band. 

 

What was your summer song?

My summer artists were James Brown, Midnight Oil, and Prince.

It was in the same location. The vibe was super inclusive. I helped program some events like live sessions with local musicians.

Zac: I liked coming down even if I didn’t have my own show and my friends and I had mini dance parties.

Favorite WMCN memory?

My favorite WMCN memory is the spoon story that inspired my show name. My ski team friend Jesse said he listened to my show in chemistry lab and it made him want to gauge his eyes out with a spoon, creating my show name, Spoon Music.
