  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Radio station sells surplus CDs

Though the world of technology is continually changing, some individuals still prefer the “old school” way of listening to music.

WBGU FM hosted their annual CD sale in the Union on Tuesday as a fundraiser for the radio station.

Alex Wohl, junior Telecommunications major and music director, said that the University gives the station money but it isn’t enough to cover other costs such as licensing fees and equipment costs.

“The money will go to things to help us strengthen our broadcast,” he said.

Because promotion companies send the station so many CDs, the station decided to sell its surplus.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. students were able to come browse through various genres and purchase a single CD for 50 cents or $5 to fill a bag.

Some genres of music consisted of hip hop, country, indie, pop, punk and metal.

Alison McDonald, who works for WBGU, was there to help but also shop to add to her collection.

“I came to specifically to find Indie music,” McDonald said. “I knew that I could find stuff that isn’t mainstream here.”

Some CDs that she was interested in buying were “Fancy Footwork” by Chromeo and “War Child” by Heroes.

Artists ranged from The George Bouchard Group to Joe Locke and Jalie Loren.

During the sale, music selections were played and a free local hardcore punk sampler CD was offered.

Sophomore Melanie Bracco came to the CD sale to hear some of the music selections.

“I know that WBGU always plays great music, so I came to just hang out and hear good songs,” Bracco said.

Other fundraising activities will be later on in the week.

Currently, WBGU is hosting 88 Straight, which tries to get people to donate money to the station until Friday.

Ellie Decker, who works for promotions for WBGU strives to make sure the word is out about WBGU and its fundraisers.

“We not only want the campus to know, but the community as well,” she said.

On Thursday, WBGU will be hosting a live concert at Cla-Zel in downtown, said senior co-op student Kyla Wireman.

WBGU asks that the community gives a $5 donation to the cause to enter.

To donate money for the cause, individuals may call 419-372-2826 or search the website at .
