WMUW hosts a diverse lineup

WMUW has a variety of radio shows lined up this semester. For a diverse student population, it can be hard to find radio shows that are diverse and appeal to a wide range of musical or news interests. The student-run shows provide just what the listener wants to hear.

Here are some of this semester’s shows:

“The name of my show is called ‘Weekend Warm-up.’ It’s on Friday from 6-7 p.m. It’s a show that plays gospel contemporary rap, like Lecrae and Andy Mineo. I talk about what is happening in the town, on campus or what’s on my mind. I hope listeners will find inspiration from the show,” said Chris Richardson, a junior communication major.

“It is called ‘Top Notch Tuesdays’ at 6 p.m. I play top 40 music. I play current artists’ songs that are not played on the radio. Sometimes, I like old school music within the R&B and Hip Hop genre. My main audience is the students. I try to include school events. I want them to know that we have a radio station and students can have the accessibility,” said Janna Ingan, a senior in communication.

“The name of my show is called ‘Down Here on Wahalak Creek’ from noon to 1 p.m. every Monday. It is mostly a talk show. We talk about hunting in Mississippi. I have a co-host, my husband Stu. He is the expert. He knows everything about hunting. We want to gear it toward people who do not know much about hunting and give them all of the basics to become a hunter. We want to teach young people to get out there in the great outdoors,” said Liz Bosarge, another junior communication major.  

Other shows on the schedule this semester include the “Charlie Crucifonic Punk Rock Hour” on Mondays at 5 p.m. and “Allie B” on Tuesdays at 3 p.m.

There is also an upcoming show this semester called “International Hour.”

“I am very passionate about communicating with people and talking on the radio. I am an international student, and I want to represent our international community. I want to do a show that focuses on international music, news and concerns of international students in the U.S. It will be called ‘International Hour.’ It will provide a road of understanding cultures outside their world,” said Urusha Silwal, an undeclared freshman.

W students can tune into 88.5 WMUW throughout the week to listen to a variety of music and talk radio. For more information, visit http://www.muw.edu/wmuw/schedule for the full schedule of shows.
