Geek tour: WCBN-FM control room, Wednesday, November 14, 2012

a2geeks is hosting a tour of the WCBN-FM control room on Wednesday, November 14, 2012. Tours start at 5:30p, 6:30p, and 7:30p, and you should RSVP for your space. (I'll be at the 5:30pm tour.)

WCBN is an amazing student-run radio station at the University of Michigan, founded in 1972 and broadcasting from the basement of the Student Activities Building. Listen live to WCBN at 88.3 FM (all the way to the left on your dial) or online. You might need to go online to enjoy it if you live outside the transmission area – this map from the FCC shows an approximate radius of where the station can best be enjoyed, though I'm sure I've heard it from further away.

    Wasn’t that cool! I loved how they had things organized by genre but even that didn’t always help you find things depending on how someone had categorized it, and that they want DJs to play music from the library and not from their iPods so that they get to accidentally run into something they weren’t expecting to see.
