Hello, and welcome to the new WRBB homepage. We hope you enjoy the new features we have here; please feel free to register for an account (top right) so that you may leave comments on the various posts around the site.
The first things you should notice are all at the top of the page under our logo: the navigation bar contains some new additions
-Calendar: This calendar will be your place to check to see if there are any upcoming meetings, events, or otherwise coming up. Peek here often, or subscribe to the Google Calendar through your Husky email account for timely updates!
-Events & Concerts: If looking at the calendar is too laborious, all of our upcoming concerts will be posted here with their relevant flyers in summary form.
-Music Blog: The blog formerly located at wrbbmusic.wordpress.com will now be located here on wrbbradio.org! If you’d like to contribute, sign up for a wrbbradio.org account and email email@example.com to ask for permission to post.
-Show Requests: Possibly the niftiest addition is the direct embedding of the electronic show request form! Now you merely need to click in the Navigation pane to start filling out the Show Request form for RETURNING DJs (for DJs who have not attended training, please don’t fill this out until after you’ve been to the first General Meeting and been trained. See the calendar page for details on the General Meeting).
Old favorites that have been renovated include the Schedule tab, which no longer redirects to Spinitron, saving you clicks, and the Contact page, which has been spiffed up substantially. To the right you’ll find the Twitter feed, Request-a-DJ button, and hotlinks for the various post types. Woohoo!
Please give feedback on the new site and any errors you may encounter. We do appreciate the help!
Now, for some news:
So the new semester is nearly upon us! Do you know what this means?! WRBB is back in full force in a little over a week! There are some dates to keep in mind:
9/5/10 – WRBB Block Party (6p @Centennial) WRBB’s biggest event of the year is BACK! The Block Party is going to be the best show of Welcome Week, for sure. Atomic Tom will start things off with a bang at 6pm in Centennial Commons, with The Postelles coming on around 7:15p and Manchester Orchestra (!!!) coming on around 8:45p. Come out and get your WRBB on!
9/6/10 – WRBB @ Night at the CSC WRBB will have the entire first floor of the CSC devoted to a live broadcast that you can take part in! We’ll have games (ROCK BAND!) and giveaways all night, so come out and give us your love!
9/8/10 – Start of the Fall 2010 Spinitron Season John will be pitching in more information about the Show Requests soon, so keep your eyes peeled, because the new season starts soon!
9/15/10 – First General Meeting (8p @ Curry 318) This is the single most important meeting for new DJs to find out how to go about comping for WRBB. Returning DJs must attend to get priority for their show request; we have a lot to update you guys on (especially if you’ve been gone a while), so don’t miss it. The first part of the meeting will be newbies + veterans, then we’ll let the vets leave so we can haze orient the newbs.
Also, if you’re interested in Work Study with WRBB, we have a bunch of open positions; get paid to do air and help out with the crazy stuff we have planned! If you’re a returning work study, hit me up and we’ll get you situated, if you haven’t work-studied with us before, I’ll be holding interviews on September 3rd and 10th at noon Walk-ins are welcome, but email ahead to secure your place. If those two times don’t work for you, email me and we’ll set up another time.
Enjoy the little bit of your vacation remaining and see you all soon!
