WBOR recruits new DJs
WBOR, Bowdoin's student-run radio station, is ready to kick off a new
semester. As always, the management will be looking to recruit both students
and members of the Brunswick community alike to help DJ. In the past,
about 25 percent of the DJs have been from the greater Brunswick area.
The informational meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29th,
in the Main Lounge of Moulton Union.
The half-hour meeting will be followed by an hour-long application period.
Applicants will be informed before the program scheduling, DJ training,
and broadcasting commences the following week.
Radio shows on Bowdoin's WBOR (FM-91.1) typically last for two hours
and air weekly during the entire semester. Anyone who has an interest
in broadcasting is encouraged to attend the informational meeting on Tuesday.
No prior on-air experience is required to become a WBOR DJ. The only thing
needed is an interest in radio, a desire to learn, and a general idea
of what your show could be about.
Even though WBOR is listed an Independent-Label Rock Station, the staff welcomes all genres of music and types of shows. In the past, the 300-watt, non-profit station, has offered world music, children's shows, jazz, talk shows and more. The aim of the station is to provide the community with an array of varying interests. WBOR, unlike commercial radio caters to the listeners and not the sponsors, and in doing this, provides the people with an uninterrupted and diverse program. Anyone interested in volunteering for the radio station is encouraged to come to the informational meeting and fill out an application on Tuesday in Moulton Union.
