Artists: Ton-Taun and Isis of Thunderheist
Kelly thought the show was a great success. “When we look for live acts to bring to campus, it’s an extension of our station’s mission to promote underrepresented music and independent artists who are doing innovative things. We want to introduce quality music to people who may not hear about it otherwise,”

    November 16, 1962WDCV Begins Broadcasting

Dickinson’s first radio station, WDCV, will be in operation Sunday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m.

Ok, so even though this article says WDCV’s first date to broadcast will be November 18th 1962…..it actually wasn’t.  And truthfully, we can’t pinpoint the actual day either.  We have been able to isolate a window of time though.  The next Dickinsonian article the references the inaugural broadcast is from December 14th 1962 but it never says definitively when it happened.  We think it’s around December 1st or so but all of the hours digging in the college archives still hasn’t allowed us to pinpoint an exact date.  So that just means we will celebrate now through the end of the semester.  It’s really not much of a change anyway since we have really been celebrating all.year.long.

…three members of the WDCV radio station along with three students who had made the accusations, met with the President and Treasurer of the Senate. Accusations were made and the radio station was given the opportunity to answer to the charges. At the end of the meeting, it was realized by all parties that the charges made against the radio station were unsubstantiated.
…The Finance Committee will soon recommend the establishment of procedures to be followed when a student wishes to bring formal procedures against an organization funded by the Student Senate.

“The event lasted 90 minutes, during which six groups and individuals performed. The crowd favorite went on last. “My favorite [band] was the Sci-Fi Mystery Hour,” said Cari Peri ’10, editor-in-chief of The Square. Led by Jordan Capizzi ’12 and Matt Guariglia ’12, the group received an ovation after its final song, “Animal Kart 3.” Playing original alternative rock music, Capizzi said he really enjoyed the support from the crowd. “It was a great atmosphere, and there was a good selection of people there,” he said. Capizzi also commented that he enjoyed the chance to perform with two of the group’s new members, Zoe Meredith ’11 and Wilson Ricardo ’12.”

    He Said, She Said Show Caters to Fellas and Ladies

    He Said, She Said Show Caters to Fellas and Ladies

    WDCV 88.3, Dickinson College’s radio station gives a fresh taste of something different every Wednesday night. From 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. the “He Said, She Said” show hosted by Alex Pettaway ‘10, aka, Ace tha kidBoss, provides Dickinson students and Cumberland County residents with brand new hip-hop and rhythm-and-blues. “First it’s an hour of underground hip hop, then it’s an hour of sex, love and r&b,” said Pettaway ’10. The concept behind the show is to escape the demographic genre of “black music” and separate the music into the proper audience, explains Pettaway. The first hour is meant primarily for the fellas, and the second segment is dedicated to the ladies. “The show is definitely one of the few good hip-hop shows in Carlisle and Ace has all the brand new songs,” said Brandon Pailin ’10. “I really enjoy knowing that I’m only going to listen to slow jams and not be interrupted by a rap song,” said Azucena Alvarado ’10. Ace speaks to his audience throughout the show and even gives shout-outs to avid listeners. “I’m sad that it’s my last year doing the show, but I’m definitely going to make it my best year,” said Pettaway.
