Staff picture at 5:45

Thanks to Dave Bauer for taking our staff photo!

— If you want a headshot, Dave will be taking pictures after the meeting

Recording names of DJs in past photos:

— Could be a really fun service hour!

— Maybe one community member and one student in order to identify every DJ?


— Print program is finally done! It will be sent to the printer on Monday morning

— The pledge drive will start soon now too

— If you prerecord your show, pleasure let Program Director and Ben M know that you won’t be live on air so that we know you aren’t there if something goes wrong on the station. You are not supposed to rely on automation without alerting the program manager first

— Make sure you are filling out transmission readings and please keep the binder in a central place on the counter (don’t put it in the counter–make it clear for the next DJ where it is)

— Thanks for sending fewer coverage emails! Yay!

— Cloie will not be running again for Program Director

Wyatt/Record Fair:
