We hope to see you all this Saturday, Oct. 22, from 5:30-7:30 in Bulldog Alley as we gather to have a reunion of WGTB alumni and current DJs! We’re really excited about this event, and we hope you can all make it.
WHAT: The stage in Bulldog will have an open mic where folks can take turn telling stories of their time with the station (crazy stories encouraged!). In the back of the room, there will be an exhibit detailing the history of the station, from its anti-Communist foundings in 1946 to the station shutdown in ’79 to the resurrection of the FM signal, briefly, in the 90s. We have a lot of cool memos and photos from that time, including archival materials donated by W. Royal Stokes, former DJ. You definitely will want to check those out.
In addition, there is a student documentary in the works on the history of WGTB, and a small film crew will be set up in the studio doing interviews with some of you. We will also film the open mic storytelling.
The studio will be open to see, though we’ll do the broadcasting straight from Bulldog Alley. We will be selling t-shirts ($10) and giving away our cool bumper stickers. Refreshments will be served!
WHERE: If you’re walking through the front gates of campus, take the path to the right, all the way to Red Square (literally a red brick patio, with the ICC Building in it.) Continue through the archway in Red Square, up the steps along the path to the Leavey Center. Go into the Leavey Center and go immediately to the back, past the coffee shop, to the food court where you will see our WGTB Studio in the corner. Bulldog Alley is immediately behind the studio. There will be signs. No permission or ID is necessary to come on campus or to the Leavey Center.
Parking is available in the garage beneath Leavey, or in the SouthWest Quad garage, accessed from Canal Road. Parking may be especially crowded because it is Homecoming weekend. Street parking is limited to two hours in the Georgetown zone.
WHO: All are welcome, bring your families, friends, neighbors, university administrators.
IF you have any questions or need directions the day of, please just send our GM Caroline Klibanoff an email (email@example.com). If you can’t make it, you can tune into the live broadcast of the open mic at www.georgetownradio.com (click “listen live”). Barring any technical difficulties, you should be able to stream the whole event.
