“In Tune” with WNHU & Charger Radio

Ileana Alvarez-Diaz

I hope the semester is still treating everyone right. We have a special treat for you all. I got the chance to interview a couple of our very own student DJs. To all you Disney fans out there, you’re going to love this!

Ileana Alvarez-Diaz: Please tell us your name(s), major(s), and class.
Leah Myers: Communication, Sophomore.

Jess Brownstein: (Cookie)- Criminal Justice, Sophomore.

IAD: What made you want to get involved with WNHU/Charger Radio? What do you do?

JB: I really like music. I am a promotions staff member and a Charger Radio Associate.

LM: I wanted to get experience for my major and to be involved with creating and producing content. I am a promotions staff member and a Charger Radio PSA Associate.

IAD: How’s your experience with station been so far? What have you learned?

JB: It’s been really good; it has helped me grow from all the new opportunities and the experiences.  My communication skills have been getting stronger and my love for radio has grown too.

LM: I have really enjoyed it thus far.  I too have improved my communication skills from being a radio DJ.  I’ve also learned how to better my cooperation skills; I had no idea how much teamwork it takes to be a part of a radio station!

IAD: Favorite thing(s) about WNHU?

JB: Working with the student staff and student DJs.
LM: We provide a huge variety of music and I get to contribute to it with our radio show.  I also enjoy Charger Radio and how any of our students are able to be a part of it.
IAD: Favorite artists?

JB: Everything except Prince and Madonna.

LM: Not really, just no polka music.

IAD: If you have a show, care to share a little about it? What time(s) can students tune in?

Both: We have a show called MyMusicEars. We play Disney Music every Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m., a different theme every week. Basically your Disney mix tape.  We also have a Facebook page where we interact with our fans.

IAD: Any last words? Anything you’d like to add?
JB: Being a part of the station is a good opportunity and we are always welcoming people.

LM: I’m so glad that I got involved with WNHU.  I hope that my future career will somehow involve radio. The station is so welcoming; I sometimes go there just to relax and do homework.

So there you have it! These girls got involved and do not regret it one bit. Any majors can join in and create something absolutely amazing. The station teaches you more than how to set up a playlist and speak correctly into a mic; you learn valuable lessons by also being a part of the team. Trust them, they’re genuine.

Definitely check out MyMusicEars, every Thursday, from 4 to 6 p.m. on Charger Radio!
