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.

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

WSPN radio show Recess: with Spinelli featuring Alex Calder Spinelli has won the International Radio Festival’s award for “Best US/Canada Campus Radio Show” and was broadcast live in Switzerland (yeah, Switzerland) on September 5th as part of the 2014 IRF in Zurich.

This guy had his radio show streamed in Switzerland. What have you done lately?

Both Recess: with Spinelli and WSPN received positive reviews from the site, who wrote

WSPN is one few college radio stations in the US solely made and run by students. The station being on air 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, playing primarily Alternative Rock, is not only available on the campus of Skidmore College, but is also extremely popular among citizens of Saratoga Springs, New York. … In his show Spinelli presents new international and local music, interviews locally grown musicians and hosts exclusive live gigs straight out of the campus studios. We are looking forward to welcome the young, thoroughbred radio journalist in Zurich and introduce him to a worldwide audience.

Worldwide audience. Not fucking bad. Congratulations to Spinelli for making both WSPN and Skidmore proud. You can stream the most recent episode (along with previous episodes) here, and we suggest you do just that. The folks at WSPN do great work, so be sure to stay posted for more info on their fall season. And if you’re interested in joining the airwaves of WSPN, be sure to attend their big meeting next Sunday, September 14th.
