WDCV 50th Anniversary in 2012!!

Hello WDCV Alumni!

Did you know that this year we are celebrating WDCV’s 50th anniversary? It’s true! We’re planning a big celebration over Homecoming & Family Weekend, so mark your calendars for Sept. 28-30, 2012!

To prepare for our big 5-0, we want to reconnect with the people who have made the station what it is today—our alumni. We have a list of alumni who have noted WDCV as one of their activities; however, there are probably plenty of alumni out there with whom we would love to reconnect, even if they only took a few spins at the station. We hope you will pass this information their way so we can gather as much WDCV history as possible.

Our goal is to gather items to create a WDCV online showcase that chronicles the last 50 fun-filled years. We have been digging through the archives and yearbooks for references to the station. In addition to your stories, we hope you will share any WDCV-related pictures, posters and memorabilia lurking in your garages.

Also, we would love to hear from you about your time at WDCV! To make this the best 50th anniversary, we hope you can help us gather more information about the station by filling out this quick survey.

To share your stories, memorabilia or posters from your days at WDCV, e-mail wdcvalumni@gmail.com.  You may send digital images of photos or memorabilia, but if you would be interested in donating the originals to the archives, send them to us at the address listed on the right. Have any old recordings?  We’d love to hear those as well, so feel free to share old shows, stories or recordings. If you have any questions, contact us directly and we will find a way to help!

We hope you will stay in touch with WDCV through our Web site wdcvfm.com and our Facebook and Twitter pages. We are just in the planning stages of the celebration, so we welcome your ideas.

Here’s to 50 years—let’s make this the biggest WDCV reunion ever!

Thank you,

WDCV Exec Board

New Online Stream!

We have been planning this for awhile and finally, finally, we have a new streaming provider.  Today we launched our streams (yes, multiple ones!) with Stretch Internet.  You should be able to hear the improvement in quality and we have 3 levels of streams so those who can’t connect through the highest connection have other options available.  We hope you like this as much as we do because we are positively giddy about it!

Test it now!

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent!

THIS SATURDAY, November 12th, WDCV is crazy-excited to present…

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent

What is it, you ask? How would you feel about an all-night, 100% free concert featuring five, count ’em, FIVE kick-ass bands? Because, that, my friends, is exactly what it is.

You’ll hear from Wild Horse and Video 54, two bands comprising current Dickinsonians and resident Carlislians.

You’ll hear from Trunks and Tales, a one-man acoustic troubadour from Harrisburg.

You’ll hear from Scott Pine and the Conifers, indie goodness from Bethlehem, PA

And you’ll hear from the ever-popular Ton Taun, the official partially-bearded band of WDCV.

And it’s all for free and free for all THIS SATURDAY.

Doors open at 7 pm  at The Depot, the show kicks off at 8 pm. There’ll be great music, cool people, light refreshments, WDCV merch, and an awesome atmosphere. Free and open to anyone, Dickinson students and non-students alike, so bring your mom! Bring everyone, because it’s going to be a damned good time.

 

Here’s how it’s gonna go down:

7 pm: Depot doors open

8 pm: Video 54

8:45: Scott Pine and the Conifers

9:30: Wild Horse

10:30: Trunks and Tales

11:00: Ton Taun

 

You can pick up some WDCV swag, merch from the artists, plus water and lemonade. But the show itself is totally free.

The Depot is located on the Dickinson College campus right next to the Kline Athletic Center, on Cherry Street in between High and Louther Streets.

It doesn’t get any better, and it doesn’t get any cheaper, so we hope to see you all there! Until then, rock and roll and don’t lose your cred!

 

With much love,

All your favorite folks here at WDCV

COLLEGE RADIO DAY!!!

 

October 11th is the first ever College Radio Day!  This is super awesome and we are so excited to participate in it.  College Radio Day was created to help showcase the wonderful stations across the country that may be seen as secret gems within in community they serve.  Many colleges have been selling their radio licenses to fill gaps in their budget, but once that happens, you aren’t going to get the station back and a void is left on campus and the community.  Please support WDCV by listening in and telling others what a great station we are.  We love Dickinson & Carlisle and we plan on being around for a long, long time!

Blast from the Past – WDCV 50’s & 60’s Archive

A few years ago one of our exec staff ventured over to the Dickinson Archives to find all of the great WDCV items hidden there.  I’m not sure why it has taken this long to post them but here is the first batch of them.  There are probably 7 or 8 collections we will be  posting so stay tuned!

 

Become a WDCV DJ!!

School is here and WDCV is looking for djs to fill our airwaves with delightful tunes!  If you are interested in becoming a dj (or returning from last year) you can stop by the WDCV table at activities night.  We will hold dj meetings on Sept. 14th & 15th (you only have to attend 1) in Tome 115 @7pm to give you all of the information you will need to get started.  Follow us on Facebook for updates!  If you have any other questions, or just want to say hello, email us at wdcvfm at gmail.com



WDCV’s Discover Dickinson!

 

On Friday, August 26th,  WDCV hosted it’s second Discover Dickinson orientation workshop. WDCV exec staff showed first-years around the station, helped them play their first song over the air and had them make posters for our upcoming DJ meeting. The groups showed lots of potential, for excellent DJs, awesome exec members and maybe even station manager someday. Only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures below!
