Who We Are

First licensed in 1963 — making it the Greater Rochester region’s first FCC-authorized college radio station — WGSU serves the Genesee Valley, including the SUNY Geneseo campus and surrounding Livingston County communities, as a noncommercial educational station. WGSU broadcasts and streams, 24/7, a commercial-free, current-based alt-pop format.

WGSU also airs a variety of non-music programming, including news, public-affairs and sports shows, and is home to Geneseo Ice Knights hockey.

WGSU Unveils Genny Fest ’19 Lineup

Second annual music and food-truck festival, May 3, to feature new and returning music acts

The second annual Genny Fest Music Festival & Food-Truck Frenzy, 4–7 p.m. May 3, will feature music by Los Angeles-based alternative-pop band Madyx (led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Michelle Blanchard). Opening for Madyx will be SUNY Geneseo alumna Allison Leah (Allison Altschiller ’18) — making a return appearance to Genny Fest.

Madyx won a UMA Music award, in 2016, for “Best International Music Video” for the song “Some Kisses.” The band’s latest singles include “Girl Boy,” “Jupiter” and “Where The Wild Things Are.” Other Madyx songs aired by WGSU include “Bad Decisions,” “Only Human” and “I Melt With You” (a remake of a 1982 track by Modern English). Madyx has been described as a blend of Pink and Katy Perry.

New York City-based Allison Leah has been called a “rising star” and garnered other accolades since releasing her debut EP, “Fly Home,” in June. WGSU, in 2017, became the first U.S. radio station to air her music in regular rotation by featuring “A Love Song.” Some of her other songs include “Black and White,” “Colorado” and “Landslide” (a remake of a track originally recorded by Fleetwood Mac).

Genny Fest ’19 will also feature eight food trucks, stand-up comedy and other entertainment — all on SUNY Geneseo’s MacVittie College Union Plaza. Named for WGSU’s “controversial squirrel” mascot, Genny, the festival is free and open to the public. Genny Fest benefits Friends of WGSU (and future Genny Fest music festivals).
