Two WDCV Alums have released free albums over the past month that you should check out. Dwight Dunston (Sterling Duns), ’10 and Ryan Sarno, ’09 are coincidentally both located in Princeton, NJ. Here’s hoping we can convince them to come back and play a show together at Dickinson College.
Stuck in the Present, the third volume in my History Lessons series which features improvised compositions determined by the recording process, poems, and buckets of veryryansarno guitar – check the neutron bomb guitar solo in “Infant”, the slippery, faltering groove in “Like Thirty” and “Biggerthatinmylife”, and the loop pedal snatched, snowball development in “Waypayja”.
Dwight Dunston (Sterling Duns):
For the last few months I have been collaborating with some of my former athletes turned friends/music companions on one of the most exciting projects I’ve been a part of. It is a 9 track album mostly featuring myself (Sterling Duns) my friend Aqil (Qilo) and my other friend Aqeel (Qubicity). Together we go under the name QDQ, and we are very excited to premiere our first full length project. There are also features from my lil sis (Debby Duns) good friend from college (Keys) and good friend in high school/now even better friend today (Rick Banks).
Here is a little more about Dwight from a Dickinson article a few years back.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
WDCV Exec Board
The Dickinson Magazine wrote up a nice article about the station and some alumni who had been very involved in WDCV over the years. Recent grad (and sorely missed exec member ) Lacey Smith was also interviewed for the article. Here is the link to that article on the web but it lacks some of the images so I also attached a PDF straight from the print copy. Kudos to all involved!
