WDCV is ranked #22 in the Princeton Reviews “Best College Radio Station” 2022 list!
This past week one of our Exec members was reading the Princeton Review’s “Best College Radio Stations” list and WDCV made the cut! We were ranked #22 out of 338 other colleges and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks to our DJs, our exec staff, our advisor, and tech manager for keeping WDCV great!
And of course thanks to our listeners for believing in the wonder and joy of college radio. We’ve been here for 60 years, here’s to 60 more!
WDCV 24 Hours Live – December 2022
As the end semester rolled around WDCV couldn’t forget to host our 24 Hours Live! While our station already always plays music on the air 24 hours a day, last Saturday from midnight Friday to midnight Saturday we had a DJ hosting each hour of the day. Our DJs hosted political and miscellaneous talk shows and of course their usual great taste in tunes.
You know it was good if Nicki was there (Emily and Nicki are close friends).

This past Saturday, WDCV hosted an Open Mic! There were talented acts and a really enthusiastic crowd; awesome energy all around. Thank you to all who came out and supported live, local music! Also shoutout to that one guy in the muscle tee that got everyone up and dancing.

WDCV is all about promoting local, underrepresented music and art, Open Mic was the perfect opportunity to bring that to the community! Some of the performers shared original pieces with the audience. Musicians Zuzu Black (’25), Allan Farfan Canales (’23), and Benjamin Fox (’26) all played original songs and the crowd loved their creations! Pia Mancini (’25) also read an original poem, and her passionate reading really resonated with the audience.

Local student band, Green Tangerine, played “Borderline” by Tame Impala

We’re in the process of getting some of our performers’ original works into our Heavy Rotation, look out for their stuff on the air! And a special thank you to our Technical Production Manager, Vivika Garrett, for setting up and managing the tech stuff for the entire event.

Last night, CMC Nashville, TN. put on an awesome show! The organization is a ‘study abroad’ program that teaches students for a semester all the details of putting on a show: set up, technical production, choreography, songwriting, etc. Their final exam is going on tour around the U.S., and one of their stops this year was Dickinson!
Each performance featured a lead singer, guitarist, bassist, backup singers, keyboardist, and drummer; and some acts included trumpets and trombones. Every part of each of the dozen acts were completely original and created by the students themselves.
The concert had all different genres: punk, pop, indie, metal, rap, and others! There was something for everyone to enjoy. The students put on amazing performances and our DJs and the audience loved it. We hope to see them again next year (or even next semester…).
