  • WUSC is giving away FREE Bassnectar tickets!

    Bassnectar is performing at the Township Auditorium in Columbia on May 8, 2013 and wouldn’t you know it, WUSC got its hands on some free tickets! As much as we’d like to keep these tickets for ourselves, that would be selfish and rude (and possibly illegal) so we’re giving them away to you! All you have to do is tune in to WUSC 90.5 FM at the times listed below and listen for your chance to call in:

    • Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
    • Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
    • Friday, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
    • Friday, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
    • Saturday, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

     

    *Call-ins may or may not be required to fight to death in a gladiatorial arena-style battle. Lions used at DJs discretion.

  • mtvU Woodie Nominations: Best College Radio Station 2013

    A wise man named Andy Dufresne once said, “…if you’ve come this far, maybe you’re willing to come a little further.” Well, MTVU is hosting their annual Woodie Awards and we’re counting on you to help WUSC make the cut, win that cut, and then cut the rest of the competition into little pieces and consume them in front of their loved ones. Go to http://blog.ratemyprofessors.com/mtvu-woodie-nominations-best-college-radio-station/ and fill out your name, email, and type “WUSC” in the nomination box. Then tell your friends, family, loved ones, pets, mistresses, that weird guy who drinks milk in front of the gas station, President Obama, ANYONE with an email address, to go and vote for WUSC.

    We’ve been on the airwaves in some shape or form since 1946 (that’s 66 years) but we never could have made it this far without your love and support. YOU are what drives WUSC and its DJs to do what we do every day. And we are eternally grateful. Now we’re asking you to come a little further with us. Help us to be recognized as the best.

    Sincerely,
    The WUSC Staff and DJ Body

    WUSC Supports Local Musicians!

    Sarah Clanton Schaffer, formerly of O Mello Cello Tree and Adele Cotton, is an incredible artist from upstate South Carolina. She visited the station in the summer of 2011 and has since started work on her album. She just met her fundraising goal for the project, so if you like soulful female singers, crazy guitar moves, or think that cellos are sexy, keep an ear out for this girl.
