Opening remarks from Ben
GREAT ATTENDANCE and GREAT NEW PROGRAMS
When playing digitals music files, high quality vs low quality. compression on the archive can mess with low quality sound, ask for help—even ben needs it sometimes
Don’t step on automated shows toes! Please refer to the clock for end and start times
Do not start early or go late – or you may face disciplinary action.
Dig deep! Review mission -Talk about the importance of playing music not heard elsewhere. Big chart tunes are not encouraged unless they are over 40 years old and thus absent from commercial airwaves. Be careful when playing household name artists.
“WESU supports a wide variety of music genres and styles of programming and is dedicated to exposing the listening audience to material generally absent from the airwaves. Our mission is to provide listeners with educational entertainment, coverage of local affairs and an eclectic mix of commercial-free music from within the community and around the globe.”
