The Evolution of WGSU News
by Daniel Parker on May 7, 2015
One of the most important aspects of radio is news. A high-quality radio station must have a high-quality news department, and if you're looking for a high-quality news department look no further than the news department of WGSU! News Director Jia Sha and Assistant News Director Buddy Phipps have been putting WGSU's news department back on the map, transforming the news from a branch of the SUNY Geneseo campus radio to a staple of the Geneseo community.
WGSU's Party in the Valley
WGSU and GSTV Begin Weather Partnership
by WGSU on February 21, 2015
SUNY Geneseo's campus radio station, WGSU-FM (89.3), and student-run television station, GSTV (Channel 4), have partnered this semester for on-air weather forecasts. Through the collaboration, which began this month, GSTV weathercasters are providing daily weather forecasts on WGSU's weekday evening newscast.
GSTV/WGSU weathercasters Lexi Lovric and Megan Metz present the forecast on WGSU's "Genesee Valley News Report," airing at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Walk the Moon at Geneseo
by Kris Kielich on January 12, 2015
The crowd buzzed with excitement all around me. The moment was finally here, and the face paint was everywhere. Hype had been building for this show ever since Walk the Moon had been announced as the first concert in Geneseo's new two smaller concert plan, which had recently ousted the one large spring concert from years past. Walk the Moon is the definition of college-friendly rock, with an indie pop sound that's perfect for dancing, which is something that I can tell you from experience most college students like to do.
Run the Jewels -- Run the Jewels 2
by Mehdi Elmouchtari on November 8, 2014
Killer Mike is pissed. Or, at least it would seem so from the opening seconds of "Jeopardy," the opening track of this new offering from Brooklyn-based duo Run the Jewels. "Let's go, El-P," he hollers, clearly excited for all the "history being made." A synthesizer hums a low, blunt, simple bass line. Killer Mike delivers his opening lines. A drum beat joins him, then a series of surf-guitar fills, and finally a highly distorted clarinet (oboe? some sort of wind instrument). Everything fits, every sound, beat, squeak, sample has its place. El-P is a brilliant producer, and he delivers on this record. With the exception of "Close Your Eyes," which we'll get to, every beat on this album hits hard.
Panda Bear -- Mr Noah
by Sara Munjack on November 8, 2014
As per usual, Panda Bear comes through with a surprise new EP that is psychedelic as ever. Set up your slow-moving strobe light lasers and bob your head to the highly rhythmic four-track Mr Noah. The short EP is a taster for his anticipated album Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, which drops January 13.
