WSPN Big Meeting (2/2)

Sunday, February 1st, 2015
The coolest logo for the coolest club.

The coolest logo for the coolest club.

You’ve heard the rumors, and they’re true. The esteemed position of WSPN radio show host just might be yours for the taking. Lots of guts. Lots of glory. Lots of cred among the Clark’s-wearing, undercut-sporting demigod(desse)s.

If any of this has some ounce of appeal to you, then go to the WSPN Big Meeting tomorrow night at 8pm in Gannett. Swing on by, meet the WSPN board members, and snag an application for a radio show this semester. Look into this shit now, because I’m pretty sure they dish out the good time slots based on seniority–and it’s much better to have a 4am time-slot your freshman year than your senior year when you actually start listening to good music. So start working your way up now, noob scum.

What’s that? You don’t like the shit they play on WSPN? Well, get a show and change that! Play your music! Be the meaningless change you want to see in the world.

WSPN Big Meeting – 9/14 @ 8pm in Gannett

Did someone say vinyl raffle?

Want to become a part of what The Princeton Review has consistently called the one of the best college radio stations* in the country? Do you think that the radio sucks and want to instill some sense of taste into our culture? Do you want to impress that one cool girl in your Scribner Seminar by landing a sweet radio show and then inviting her to join you in the studio to provide you company while you surf the lonely airwaves at 5am?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then go to WSPN‘s “Big Meeting” tomorrow (9/14) at 8:00pm in Gannett Auditorium. You’ll be able to hear more about the radio station and how to apply for a show, and this is the only opportunity you have to receive an application for fall semester season. There will also be a vinyl raffle. But you’ll have to buy your own record player, because we fucking know you don’t actually own one.

*While we at Skidmore Unofficial (like most level-headed people) don’t actually buy into any of the shit that “publications” like The Princeton Review peddles, it’s worth noting that WSPN produces fucking awesome work, and they actually got something right with this one.

Still Need a WSPN Show Application?

This is an old logo.

Skidmore’s radio station, WSPN, decided to hold their semester kickoff meeting during Super Bowl XLVIII.  I’m not really sure how many people showed up, and I’m less sure how many Skidmore students know the game of football.  But fear not!  If you were like me and missed yesterday’s big meeting, you can still pick up an application in the WSPN office TONIGHT (Monday 2/3) from 7:00-8:30.  A note from the WSPN programmer, Lena Bilik…

Hi everyone,

Good turnout at the meeting tonight! Thank you so much to everyone who came out despite the Superbowl. We will be definitely considering that fact when we read through the applications this week.

But, if you couldn’t make it tonight we are allowing a second chance: tomorrow, Monday February 3, Gretchen and I will be in the radio station from 7pm – 830 pm. If you want to, come get an application from us then and we will fill you in (quickly) on what you missed at the meeting.

Remember, the applications are due on TUESDAY AT 6pm IN THE RADIO STATION no matter when you pick up the application. The program will be posted on Friday.

Note: we will be marking the applications that we receive tomorrow, and the people who came to the meeting tonight will be recognized for their commitment. Thanks guys!

It is actually important to come to the big meeting, we had some new information as well as crucial reminders that you will have missed if you didn’t come. That is why between 7 and 830 pm tomorrow will be the only time to get another application if you missed the meeting tonight. We usually don’t offer another chance to get these, but we did feel badly about the scheduling, so take advantage of it.

See some of you tomorrow!

WSPN Big Meeting Tonight

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Barack Obama tunes in

The WSPN big meeting will be held tonight in Gannett. All interested DJs must attend the meeting, or email the lovely GM Annie Auchincloss for an application if you have fallen into a punji stick-lined pit and are thus unable to make it. You will learn important things like the on-air swearing policy (don’t do it EVER) and how to fix a busted transmitter (tearfully call Brendan Gaffney at grad school).

WSPN is the club with by far the highest levels of coolness per capita, so when you fill out your app, make sure you write all about how important Chief Keef and Riff Raff are to the future of hip hop so that the programmer Mac Parsons gives you a good time slot. Otherwise, good luck at 4am!

WSPN Big Meeting Tonight

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

The WSPN Big Meeting for the semester is tonight in Emerson* at 8pm. This meeting is mandatory for anybody interested in having a radio show, even if you’ve had one before. Paige and Katie will say some shit and Brendan will act pissed off and you’ll be given applications to fill out. Do your best to make it.

*I know the poster says it’s in Gannett, but that’s a mistake and you shouldn’t believe everything you read

Big Meeting for WSPN 91.1FM

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Skidmore’s radio station WSPN 91.1FM will be hosting the Big Meeting for the semester tonight at 8pm in Gannett Auditorium. This is mandatory for anybody interested in getting a radio show this semester. You will be given applications and all the necessary information for the impending semester of broadcasting, so do everything within your power to make it.

This meeting is always pretty fun. All the people at Skidmore who take themselves way too seriously (myself included) are concentrated in one room, and afterwards, you get to have conversations like, “Yeah, I’m thinking of doing a Lower East Side gypsy proto-punk show” and “I agree, dubstep is definitely the most important musical-slash-social movement since rockabilly.”

America’s Next Top College Radio DJ Auditions

Monday, January 24th, 2011

91.1WSPN Skidmore College Radio will be having their Spring Semester Big Meeting this Sunday at 8:30pm in Gannett. They will be discussing improvements to the station and a few changes in policy.  Every student interested in grabbing themselves a piece of the broadcasting pie must attend and take an application. WSPN completely revises their programming schedule each semester and all students hoping to continue DJing must re-apply for shows even if they are “like super chill with the board members.” Make sure to get there early to watch the WSPN executive board worry about talking in public!

Skidmore’s radio station, which has been serving the greater capital district since your daddy was in diapers, will have its Big Meeting tonight at 8pm in Gannett. Any students interested in having a show this semester MUST attend regardless of past participation. The Executive Board will be introduced, expectations for the year will be explained, the application process will be demystified and applications will be distributed.

If you like music or just want to hit on some indie girls I suggest you stop by.

8pm @ Gannett
