Ben G:

  • Staff party–let’s schedule this soon–for 12/2 or 12/3–potentially underwater themed
  • Soundcloud to be worked on soon


  • New spinitron requests coming in–yay! Should we make categories for our shows on the spinitron page? This seems maybe unnecessary for a free-form radio station

  • Pledge drive–what else can we be doing?
    • Shirts! They are $15
    • We should make personal Facebook posts more!
    • Maybe we should change the streaming audio to a pledge drive plea–let’s ask Ben M
    • What about Red & Black or Swings brunch for WESU? Let’s talk to RD–Adam or Abby will reach out to him
