Update of Awesome with LAZERS!

Hey everyone, this is your friendly neighborhood station manager Jared with a weekly update (my lasers are broked).
First order of business: We have set up a bi-weekly heads of staff meeting to occur EVERY OTHER FRIDAY at 2PM. That means today ( OCT. 26) and again on Nov. 9. Now you may be saying to yourself “Good for you…why should I care?” Well the reason you should care is that with all the Heads of staff in one place (the office) you can bring to our attention any and all problems, concerns, irrational fears and bad ideas for sitcoms you wish! With all the heads of staff together we can put our minds together and solve your problems faster (and hopefully figure out how to become VOLTRON)
Second order of business: Our top 30 is up and running and we are pleased to see that you guys are playing our music. Remember the more of our top 30 you incorporate into your show the happier the labels become, with happy labels we can expand the amount of music we receive and the variety so keep it up.
Third business of order : WE WILL BE HOSTING ELECTIONS FOR MUSIC DIRECTOR SOON!!!!!! If you want to run for music director there are only a handful of requirements. 1. You have to have been a DJ with KMSC for one semester prior to your submission. 2. you need to have a rudimentary understanding of music. 3. you have to be able to devote 10 hrs PER WEEK to KMSC 4. you have to have phone skills as much of your time will be spent talking to label executives.

EhrmahGerd The Heads of Staff have faces!!!

Here is Ben…he’s our Music Director and totally German…as in from Germany. He even knows German, and English. He will sadly be leaving KMSC this December so if you want to get trained by Ben please submit an email to KMSC stating that you wish to run for the position with a brief Resume and we’ll send you a detailed guide describing everything you will be required to do as Music Director. Ben would also like to remind you guys that their is a MASSIVE tote full of unreviewed CD’s. As DJ’s you signed the paperwork stating you’d review a couple a week and that’s all we want. If you haven’t picked up a couple CD’s this week please do so.

This is Erik… He’s our station director and is uhhh….of German-ish decent…maybe. He’s here to let you know that the KMSC BASEMENT PARTY was a rousing success and is glad you guys came in to show your support. He would also like to tell you that we still have positions open for a GRAPHIC DESIGNER and a NEWS CORRESPONDENT! These positions require very little time (5hrs a week) and will look fantastic on a resume. Email us back at kmscdragonradio@gmail.com to let him know if you are interested.

This is Michael…he uhhh…he can totally spell German…. even with a pen. Michael is the Program Director for KMSC and is basically a DJ affairs expert. Michael is here to help you all understand how the equipment works in the station and how to use it properly. Michael would like to remind everyone that you can email us at any time and we’ll do whatever we can to help you with your problems.
Lastly and with the largest pic is ME!!!! I am Jared your Station Manager. I am the one behind the scenes making sure the paperwork is done and the fires are put out week to week to keep this place up and running. Also sometimes I eat candy. I am more than willing to help you guys as much as I can and if you ever need me feel free to email us or drop in during my office hours. I do realize that my office hours a little inconvenient for some of you this semester but once November rolls around my hours will change and Hopefully I can better serve a larger DJ population in doing that.

Couple things I want to say before I leave you guys for the weekend. 1. please review CD’s, we need this accomplished so we can finish assembling the TOP 30 for you. 2. We need a new music director (Ben will be your personal German Yoda, teaching you the ways of the musical force) for next semester and we’ll announce election night in the next week once we have a venue assigned.

That’s all for now have a great weekend!

Hey look it’s KMSC NEWS!

Hey all guess what? OUR STREAMING WORKS….well mostly. The itunes download link now works but unfortunate the browser player is still giving our techs a hard time. We will let you know when that portion is fixed. For now enjoy the itunes playlist download and all its streaming goodness!

SPECIAL NOTES: 1. We are in desperate need for a volunteer for a News Corespondent. If you wish to take this job (5 hours a week with a fancy key) Please email us and let us know.
2. The first wave of keys has successfully landed in the hands of our DJ’s. If the key office hasn’t emailed you about a key yet, they will shortly.
As always we will update you as things progress. Take care and enjoy the week!

Just a Wee Update

Hello everyone, just to keep you guys (and gals) informed on what’s going down at KMSC. This week we began recording liners and thus far have been very happy with the turnout. The first round of key requests has been sent out as of wednesday and hopefully the mighty key office will get those DJs the keys they long for.

LINERS: Please either sign up for a timeslot at goo.gl/0ibKG (need FREE google account to do so) or stop in during our office hours. If neither of these options works for you please email us so we can make special arrangements.

We wish you all a happy weekend and look forward to seeing more of you for liner recording and getting your shows started!

An Article On One of Our International DJ’s!

Minnesota State University Moorhead’s Dragon Digest published an article about on of our international DJ’s Zahra.

The link below directs you to an article speaking about KMSC’s own Zahra and her experience as a part of Dragon Radio.

Dragon Radio is a student organization providing the opportunity for students of all backgrounds to experience radio broadcasting

first hand. This is an example of us doing just that. KMSC extends a special thank you to Zahra for an awesome radio show on our

radio station and we were happy to have her as a part of our organization!

“Students at Minnesota State University Moorhead got an unexpected ‘Journey to Pakistan’ this past semester, thanks to a young Pakistani woman, Zahra, who found her public voice after coming to the U.S.”
