Justin Hoden ’18

Events Coordinator
jhoden@bates.edu

You wake up in a bed that is your own, as you remembered it the night before, yet the room is unfamiliar but not frightening. A man, at least you assume it is a man, kneels down beside you and takes your hand. His face is obscured by the darkness that blankets the room. His hands are coarse but welcoming. His breath smells of garlic. You get up and follow him. He leads you to a door and you follow him through it. On the other side there is nothing but light, so bright you cannot see. That man with the coarse, comforting hands and garlic breath is me, Justin.

Neil Bement

Community DJ Representative
djsleddog@gmail.com

Neil first heard College Radio out of Cornell College in the early
70’s and I’ve been hooked ever since. 13 years of airing “Dr. Bemento’s World” trying to make the world a little smaller by playing music like you’ve never heard before – because it’s new (and not corporate main stream radio). For 10 years he has been privileged to be Community Representative on the WRBC Board acting as liaison for the community DJs.
