WDCV ALL DAY LONG! This is our prom. This is our birthday. This is the day where we get to celebrate our very existence. Will you celebrate with us? You have so many opportunities to show your support for the little station that could.
We will be on Britton Plaza over lunch (11-1pm)and we have an extra special guest just for the day. Dennis Gotthard is one of our favorite people in Carlisle but most people know him by the name the Mannequin Man. He has an incredible, vast space just outside of town where he has a maze of building FILLED with mannequins, store fixtures, oddities and records. So Many Records. Thousands and thousands of them. And for just one day he will bring it all out for a pop up shop where you can peruse his wares and purchase vinyl, quirky vintage items, mannequins and other surprises. He should be set up on Britton Plaza unless there is poor weather, then he will be in the underground in the HUB.
We did a story about Dennis and his wonderland of mannequins and records last year. Take 8 minutes and listen to his incredible stories and start making a wishlist for what you hopes he brings to campus to sell. He only takes cash and checks so start saving your pennies and have your ATM card handy!
At 5pm we will be set up downtown for First Friday and the theme is Music so OF COURSE we have to come out! We will be set up in between the Hamilton Restaurant and Warm Springs Salon in the Cumberland County Historical Society parking lot. Come chill with us, dance to lively tunes and celebrate our very special day!

Come visit us in the WDCV Studios or stop by Britton plaza to meet djs, eat snacks, and wax nostalgic about your own time on the air at WDCV. Stop by the studio if you want to get back into the booth and put some tunes out on the air again (or for the first time!). All are welcome!
Saturday September 26th 10am-2pm.
One day every year we get to celebrate our very existence in a world of rapidly changing technologies and over produced Top 40 hits. College Radio Day is the day everyone should take a little extra time to appreciate this unique and free entertainment outlet.
We play the music that others overlook or wouldn’t even consider because they are under-appreciated independent artists on tiny labels. Often, those artists have gone on to become the giant acts that sell out venue after venue but you heard them first on college radio. We bring you shows like Democracy Now! that give an in depth look at news from across the globe and connects you with the people fighting for democracy everywhere. We give students the chance to find their voice and connect directly with people outside of the borders of Dickinson College. Our programming stays diverse by intentionally mixing student produced shows along side community djs and syndicated programming.
We are always striving to do better, find better shows, connect with the community in fun and meaningful ways, and be the Voice of not only Dickinson College but the greater Carlisle community. If you listen to College radio and like what you hear, give a call to the DJ (245-1444) and tell them they are doing a good job. We love to know that someone out there is listening. If you have an idea, a gripe or just a comment feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have been around for over 50 years and we aren’t planning on going anywhere (except a more visible location in the HUB would be much appreciated!)

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!
WDCV will be having weekly ‘Live on Britton Plaza’ broadcasts throughout the month of March to raise funds for Carlisle C.A.R.E.S. Carlisle C.A.R.E.S is a wonderful organization “whose mission is to provide shelter to homeless individuals and families when no other shelter can be found.” WDCV will be holding bake sales and craft sales as well taking general donations. All of this will lead up to our fundraising festival on April 2nd on campus. Please come out to Britton Plaza to enjoy fun music, tasty treats and raise money for a worthy cause!
