Are you bored and looking for a variety of music to listen to without having to open Pandora or download songs online? If so, tune into 103.1 WPLH. ABAC Radio plays every genre — country, pop, hip hop, metal, classical. It even has talk shows. Joe Schriefer has been the station manager for a year and a half. His one goal is to let people know that student-operated ABAC radio exists. Many people aren’t aware of this fact.
ABAC radio went off air for two years after the antenna was struck by lightning. The old antenna had died years ago, but ABAC radio has been back on air for almost a year now. This will be the first full academic year that the station will be back on air. When asked about new developments, Schriefer replied that the next time that the FCC opens the door to move up and down on the dial, he would like to petition to move down and request more power to give the station a stronger signal.
ABAC Radio is a volunteer station that is open to students who want to DJ. Now, WPLH has only veteran DJs, but on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 4:00 p.m., the station will hold a meeting for anyone who is interested in becoming a DJ. The only requirement to be able to DJ is to have and maintain a 2.5 GPA.
If you are interested in becoming a DJ for ABAC Radio, you might be asking yourself what you can and cannot do. You can go and play music, or you can have a talk show of anything you want. However, you cannot drop any f-bombs. You have to follow the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) and ABAC guidelines, hence no profanity.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a DJ, you can contact WPHL by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact Mr. Schrief at email@example.com.
