Contribute to WESU’s 75th Anniversary Programming with “75 Years Of…”

For 75 years, WESU has provided a platform for the enjoyment of underground music and under-represented genres generally absent from commercial airwaves.

2014 will mark WESU’s 75th Anniversary, and we’ve got a metric boatload of events and special programming to celebrate!

One of the special programs will be an hourly, weekly show called “75 Years Of…”.  Each month “75 Years Of…” will have a singular theme, and we’ll air 75 songs relevant to that theme throughout the month.  Rather than air just our selections, we want YOU, our listeners and friends, to contribute to our playlist by helping us pick the songs!

To kick things off in January, we’ll be featuring “75 Years Of Socially Conscious Music”.  Socially Conscious Music includes protest music, songs that call attention to injustice and songs that rail against inequality.  Socially Conscious Music transcends genre boundaries; the call to action is what defines this music, not the arrangement or the instruments!

Again, we want your suggestions!  You can submit them through our handy-dandy form by clicking this here link!

  1. I have a cassette tape with many amazing station IDs on it from 1978-1980. Very much of their time. I could have them turned into little digital pieces for your use, if you like. Any interest?

  2. Excellent Theme for the 75 year Anniversary month 1 and thank you for the wonderful open minded explanation of “Socially Conscious Music”

    Might I suggest a weekly post to the WESU Facebook page (BOTH Facebook pages) so fans, friends, students, staff and all can share this request to send Socially Conscious Music (like poems to music/sounds are cool too) to (?) !
