    What a Great Year!

    image

    This past Friday, May 2nd, we held our Senior Sign-Off of 2014 to cap off another fantastic year at VIC!  This year has seen changes in leadership, new specialty shows, and constant delivery of “the best of what’s next!”

    As always, we held a sleep-deprived and exciting 50 Hour Marathon.  The station fundraised over $3,500 for the Veterans Sanctuary of Tompkins County!  The veterans were excited and our four DJs survived on little to no sleep!

    Thank you to the executive staff that has served this year for their dedication, especially station manager Jeremy Gosek!

    We also want to recognize the graduating seniors: Shannon Anthony, Harrison Asen, Alex Bryn, Brian Callaghan, Dan Caplan, Faith Enenbach, Jeremy Gosek, Patrick Hayes, Nick Jurczak, Katelyn Madison, David Sperling, Rose Vardell, and David Wayman! We’re going to miss you!

    Scavenger Hunt!

    We just landed back in the studio after the annual 50 Hour Marathon. Each team was presented a series of over 80 challenges to complete between the hours of 11 pm and 2 am. My team, Identity Crisis, was frantically scrambling through Ithaca, completing these shenanigans. During this time, we sent my roommate Meg into a gas station store in a onesie, reenacted VIC song titles, acted out entire films in 30 seconds (Titanic, of course), got DJ JC a McFlurry, made VIC friendship bracelets, proposed to a stranger, gave a stranger a cheesy pickup line, filmed a sexy hamburger commercial and more. It was worth all the running in circles and public humiliations because we were the champions!

    This friendly competition that pitted DJ against DJ kept me awake and energized for a while there. I’m back in the studio now, coloring with DJ JC, and slowly crashing. We’re pushing through with Hip Hop Bus Stop for the Night Owls out there. We’re on the brink between the Night Owl and Early Riser audience though, which is crazy to think about. Here’s to Hour 12! -Stoop Kid

    OK GO Interview

    It’s currently 3:27 AM Saturday morning. Friday afternoon DJ JC and myself (DJ Hazy) had the opportunity to talk with Tim Norwind from OK GO. They have a new EP dropping this summer and a tour to promote it, along with that they are dropping the rest of the album in October. It was great to talk to him, mostly I was interested in how they come up with the ideas for their awesome music videos. He says they come up with them when they’re stir crazy on tour.
