WDCV’s Halloween Parades over the years

We are already thinking about Halloween. It’s never to early to get inspired. We realized we did’t post all of our old entries into the Halloween Parade here so here’s a quick recap.  Want to part of it this year? You don’t have to be part of WDCV, just have the spirit of Halloween move you and join in our fun. We don’t have a theme yet this year. Inspire us!

24 Hours Live- 12/3/22

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).

Open Mic!!

Jam Space members of “Green Tangerine” playing at Open Mic [Emilio Gurany (’25), Owen Degenhard (’25), Nate Valleau (’25), & Matt Turk (’23)]!

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.


Allan Farfan Canales (’23) rapping his self-produced music

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.

Venus Bhatt (’24) and Swarnim Bade Shrestha (’26) sang “Take Me To Church” by Hozier






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.

Benjamin Fox (’26) performed an original song


CMC Concert- 11/8/2022

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…).

Under Milk Wood with the Dickinson College Department of Theatre and Dance

This past weekend, WDCV had the chance to collaborate with the Dickinson College Department of Theatre and Dance on their spring show. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the theatre and dance department decided to take this semester’s production online with the radio drama, Under Milk Wood. See below for a short synopsis of the play:

“Under Milk Wood tells the gentle story of a day in the life of a small seaside village in Wales, beginning with the first rustlings of pre-dawn and continuing until all in the village rest in the arms of nightfall. In this unique radio broadcast, the characters of the village are brought to life by a cast of over thirty voice actors composed of current Dickinson students and Dickinson alumni guest artists.”

Although originally aired on WDCV on March 5th and 6th, you can listen to the recording at your leisure by clicking the play button below.
