Dearest listeners, volunteers, and faithful followers of college radio,

It’s somehow already October and we’ve had a whirlwind great start to this new semester of college radio! This past month, 1190 has seen a huge influx of volunteers, some sick live sets on Local Shakedown, a new sponsor, new hires and so much more.

Our volunteer base has grown exponentially this semester thanks to our welcome week events at the end of August, and our community is ready and raring to launch the station into a new golden era. Several of our new volunteers have written some sweet columns and articles for the blog, which you can browse here on our site! We’re also working on getting more and more people trained for DJ slots, are close to filling all of the existing spots on our schedule, and are considering opening up more overnight and weekend hours in response to the demand of aspiring DJs. Our new Volunteer Coordinator Jacob is off to a wonderful start in the position and we have volunteer events for y’all running every day apart from Saturday! If you’re not involved, and you’re interested in getting involved (which you should be) you can email him any time at Jacob.D.Newman@radio1190.colorado.edu. Our manager team is also finally complete, and since August we’ve hired four new folks for open positions—Ainsley Gilbard for Program Director, Owen Zoll for Production Director, Ashley Koett for Music Director, and Zack Marshall for Engineer.

On the programming side of 1190, this semester’s Local Shakedown sets have all been sick so far! If you missed any you can check them out on our Soundcloud. Our new host Jeff Josephs has been doing a sweet job of booking the best in local music, and our studio has been graced by the presence of all of these acts—Koto Robo, French Kettle Station, Techno Allah, Upstanding Citizen, and Paul Maul. Tune in this Friday 10/12 at 5pm for a set from Denver’s Mr. Atomic, and follow @localshakedown on instagram for updates on who else is playing throughout the month. In addition to our traditional shakedown sets, we’ve had a couple touring acts come through, including Ridgeway from California and Utah from Philadelphia. We even had a live interview with Tech N9ne a few weeks ago, which you can check out below!

We have so many exciting things in the works for the rest of the semester, so make sure to follow us on social media if you don’t already, and swing by the station if you’d like to be involved.

This week, we’re running all our regular volunteer events and hanging out as always, so come down to see what’s going on any time :)

That’s all for now, but stay tuned,

Dearest listeners, volunteers, and faithful followers of college radio,

Welcome to the first edition of Radio 1190’s new monthly newsletter, where we’ll give you a little insight into station happenings straight from the best basement on campus.  This month we’re gearing up for the new semester with a variety of student welcome events, building up our staff with new hires, and re-vamping our blog with a new column called “Blast from the Past.”

With the new school year fast approaching, we’re stoked to welcome new volunteers into the 1190 community. Whether you’re a new freshman, a transfer student, or an upperclassman just looking for something new; we have a place for you! We have volunteer opportunities in music journalism, concert photography, video production, live sound, graphic design, and so much more. Dedicated volunteers can also apply to DJ and join our street team to help decide what music goes on air.

If any of the above sounds good to you, swing by our table at any of the following events to say hi. Or if you can’t make it, swing by our studio in the basement of the UMC any time <3

In other news, our team of student managers is excited to begin the year with our new Volunteer Coordinator, Jacob Newman—a sophomore transfer student from the University of Wisconsin. We’re also in the process of hiring a new engineer, production director, and Program Director. Head to the get involved tab on our site to see the available positions, and if you want to work with us you can send in an application on the student jobs portal.

Finally, we’re always aiming for more and more quality content on our blog! Last month our VC Jacob wrote a great review of Sergio Mendes and Brazil ’66, as well as a review of an improvisational jazz set that went down at Trident. Check those out on our website and stay tuned for more in the coming school year. If you’d like to volunteer to write with us, shoot me an email at hannah.m.morrison@colorado.edu.

             That’s all for now folks, but keep your eyes open for monthly 1190 updates going forward.
