anyone can be involved.

practical constraints limit our broadcast hours to roughly 7 pm to midnight, five nights a week. we add additional hours to the broadcast schedule whenever we can.

send us an e-mail if you have a show proposal or are interested in helping out around the station. due to an overwhelming number of people requesting shows, weekly shows are difficult to get and you will likely have to wait a while. we do, however, keep a running list of interested parties and offer spots as they become available. we also call on people from this list to sub in when regular hosts are not able to make their shows.

if you have a specific project or idea that isn't necessarily an ongoing, regular show (perhaps a short series of broadcasts or some sort of one-off event), then it is likely we can fit you into the schedule.

there are lots of ways to participate in the station outside of djing/hosting shows. we're always accepting station ids, public service announcements, or any other short-form material suitable for radio broadcast. if you click the donate link above you can also see our material and immaterial wish lists.
