This Thursday at 8 pm all Middlebury music lovers and radioheads alike are invited to convene in McCullough Social Space for the biannual WRMC All DJ Meeting. This meeting is a must for anyone and everyone interested in having a radio show for the fall semester.
WAIT…MIDDLEBURY HAS A RADIO STATION?
Yes. Since 1949.
We are located above Proctor Dining Hall.
HOW DO I TUNE IN?
We broadcast 24/7 all over the Champlain Valley and WORLDWIDE(!) on iTunes.You can tune in any time by turning your trusty radio dial to 91.1 FM or if radio is *~*2 obsolete 4 u*~*, WRMC also streams online (go/listen, go/radio, go/wrmc) and we also have constantly updated Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Spotify pages. So get jiggy with it and follow us @WRMC911 for all the latest in Middlebury and music news.
SO HOW DO I GET A SHOW?
Come to the WRMC All DJ Meeting this Thursday, 9/11 at 8 PM for the lowdown on how to get your very own radio show! The meeting will take place in McCullough Social Space aka the big room where the magic of Grooveyard/Sepomana and happens every year thanks to the WRMC concerts committee. ***Attendance at the WRMC ALL DJ meeting is REQUIRED for ALL prospective DJs, OLD AND NEW. We will be handing out forms everyone needs to sign in order to do a show***
BUT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT RADIO…
No experience, skinny jeans or edgy hairdos are necessary to apply for a show, just a healthy addiction to music. WRMC trains all new DJs at the start of each semester and a member of the exec board will stand in during the first show to make sure everything runs smoothly.
BUT I DON’T HAVE ANY FRIENDS TO DO A SHOW WITH…
Do a solo show! Some of the best shows on WRMC are hosted by just one person passionate about a certain genre or theme. Shows range from 1 hour to 2 hours long, and you can talk for as little or as long as you’d like, so long as you introduce the songs that are played and you don’t curse. You can also come to General Board meetings every Monday at 5 PM in the Station lounge to meet some more people who like music. It’s our music directors’ job to make sure that WRMC DJs have access to all the best and newest albums that we get in the mail, and every Monday new releases are distributed for DJs to grade and return to our station library.
WHAT IF I DON’T LISTEN TO MUSIC?
In addition to WRMC’s extensive and diverse music programming, we also aim to broadcast a variety of talk, comedy, and news shows. Additionally, Middlebury Radio Theater of Thrills and Suspense records and airs episodes once a week on WRMC as well if you are interested in voice acting or sound design. Also, you should probably start listening to music. WRMC is a good place to start.
OK COOL SO WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO AGAIN?
Meeting. Thursday. 8 PM. McCullough.
BUT I HAVE SO MANY MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT WRMC THAT I’D RATHER EXPRESS IN WRITTEN FORM!!!1!!

Bring your friends, bring your mom, bring your dog, don’t miss out!
