Wacky vintage college DJs can find it a challenge to revive long disused skills, like turning down the pot (potentiometer!) before a vinyl album starts playing the next track over their backsell. And this new fangled computer technology can be quite a chore to figure out. Hence the Resurrection Reunion Board of Directors is seriously […]

This is something new you may not have heard about. We now have an official day of recognition for college radio. Read more about it here Remember Those Good Old College Radio Days?
With the production values of network television (by which we mean Dumont, circa 1953) WLHA’s Halloween Spooktacular was our greatest extravaganza to date with a cast of 30+ broadcasters, musicians and hangers on (not to mention craft services whipping up two kinds of chili!). The screenshots here are captured from the HD broadcast as […]
Wow, 10/14 already, so time for an update. It’s really getting close now. We’re only TWO weeks out from the WLHA Halloween show and party. To help get into the “spirit” of our Halloween show I hope you clicked on the promo above. But woah. Pretty scary stuff.
Big 64 engineers are now busy wrestling with software problems, installing cameras, hanging lights, putting fresh tubes in the H.U.M. generator and greasing the turntables. Mrs. The K has been busy cooking up tasty things for the party and decorating the WLHA lounge. (I heard we might have TWO kinds of chili this year). The Graphics Dept. has just finished preparing over 100 brand new slides to augment the 300 WLHA Hallween graphics left over from previous years. The Sales Dept. has out done themselves lining up new sponsors, selling live copy spots and naming rights for each of the studios, Al’s helicopter, Nivek’s theremin and even the big red “On Air” light. I think it’s getting a little out of control, and I don’t mean the control room. The Sales Mgr. told me that even moments of dead air are sponsored this year. He said we can make a mint on all of those avails. The talent coordinators are lining up musicial groups and all over town musicians are learning new songs for the show. Stupid Stereo Steve is working hard to come up with merchandise to give bikes away with.
The excitement during these last couple of ramp up weeks is pretty hard to contain. Circle that date, Oct 28th, so you can Be There with us.
