Justin Hoden ’18

General Manager
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.

 

Emma Lammers ’19

Secretary/Programming Director – “The Words Lady”
elammers@bates.edu

Emma is from arguably the greatest city in the world: Columbus, Ohio. She does essentially all things word related for WRBC. She is pursuing a double major in biology and potentially philosophy (?) and swims for Bates. Ask her about phytoplankton, Spike Jonze, The National, or the song A Milli by Lil Wayne.

 

Katherine Schell ’19

Treasurer
kschell@bates.edu

Katherine/Kat/Kat Shat was birthed in Charlotte, North Carolina, which contrary to popular belief is not a small Southern hick town where people drink moonshine all day. She mainly digs dad music, and handles the cash money of WRBC. She also attempts to sail here at Bates while trying not to die of hypothermia.

Madeline Schapiro ’20

Treasurer Numero Dos

Gordon Platt ’19

jplatt@bates.edu

Hailing from just oustide of J.O.B., Gordon grew up riding bikes and building things. Gordon joined WRBC during the first semester of his freshman year and plays a variety of folk, alternative rock, and indie music. His go-to jam song is “Rock Lobster” by the B-52s. Outside of the station, Gordon is on the sailing team and is pursuing a major in Environmental Studies.

James Erwin ’18

Compliance Director
jerwin@bates.edu

A native of Yarmouth, Maine, James has considerable talent in memorizing thoroughly useless information and has therefore elected to pursue a degree in history and rhetoric. His skill at immitating crayfish has led to him developing a radio persona around a freshwater crustacean that spouts fun facts.

 

Nick Osborn ’19

Technical Director
nosborn@bates.edu

Nick is a Math/Physics double Major from Boston, MA. He joined WRBC as an intern last year and somehow has been trusted with a ridiculous amount of responsibility. Nick enjoys chocolate chip pancakes, complaining about rowing, and telling everyone how much he loves his roommate.

Josie Blanchon ’20

Lily Kip ’19

Fall Webmaster
lkip@bates.edu

A JOB Resident and an English/Studio Art major; Lily Kip joined WRBC in a fit of rage against club sports and is somehow still here. Ask her anything about obscure Bruce Springsteen albums, Meyers Briggs personality typing, or proper canoeing technique. But nothing else, please.

Ryan Whittemore ’19

Winter Webmaster
rwhittem@bates.edu

Ryan is native of West Virginia who believes in radio as a way to spread good vibes. He is pursuing a degree in politics and has a strong interest in film. Music ranging from Folk to rap to pop interests him.

Ava Gulino ’20

Special Projects
agulino@bates.edu

Ava is from the first state in the union, Delaware, where she likes to hang out with her grumpy pet beagle, Louie. She is continually on the prowl for fresh beats to play and she’s all about the flow and ~vibez~ of her show. She enjoys a range of music but her go-to’s are definitely some synthy alternative, indie, singer/songwriter, and an occasional club beat just to keep things groovin’.

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.
