2009 was an interesting year in the history of WRBC. The saw several key changes and its prominence on campus grow to a significant degree. It was a year marked by a variety of concerts, excellent programing, and a few bumps along the way. The WRBC board and the station at large has worked hard to make 2009 one of the best years in our over 50 year history on FM and hopes to build on that momentum in 2010.
Thus, here is a partial rundown of everything that was accomplished over the past year.
January 15: Winter Semester general meeting, we welcome new members onto the board and completely fill the schedule for the third semester in a row.
January 17: Concert by Black Taxi (With Class of 2010 Co-Presidents and Bates Musicians’ Union)
Happy Holidays from all of us at WRBC. May the blessings of free-format radio be with you throughout the coming year!
Light a fire of sensuality into your internal organs and unDISCHARGE yourself. This, the “Empire Strikes Back” to DISCHARGE’s “A New Hope,” is not a concert in the traditional sense. This is an audiovisual exhibition of what can only be called performance art because it will synthesize music, images, and bodies into a psychedelic experience appropriate for those willing to explore the inner workings of collegiate humanity.
Indeed, this event will not follow the most traditional concert format but will instead function as a collaboration between your dancing body and the following artists:
