Yep, it sure is! Check the times of your favorite shows by clicking the “Schedule” link above, or right here!
In an effort not to clog your News & Twitter feeds, here’s the remainder of the 2011-2012 WQAQ Superlative Winners! Thanks to Tom and Gerry, and Scotty, for helping me with these earlier today!
This year at WQAQ has been so much fun, and I’ve had a blast getting to know our management and staff members. They’re the reason everyone was crying at our last staff meeting yesterday, the reason our events were so successful this year, and the reason there are never enough chairs in the station.
THAT BEING SAID:
Best Dancer: Scotty “Ballroom Princess” Wong
Worst Potential Transfer: Tom “SUNY” LoPresto
Best Facial Hair: Gerry “11 out of 10” D’Apollo
Because we’ve had one fabulous college radio week.
First of all, thanks again to everyone who came out to Festapalooza last Friday! It was one of the best events WQAQ has hosted in recent history, and featured crowd surfing, beach balls, dancing, broken glasses, and first-pumping. It was magical. Not in a romantic way. But definitely in a college radio/punk rock sort of way. (Thanks also to our staff members who helped set up, and stayed to clean up until 1:30am.)
Check out the event review via Quad News here!
On Saturday, WQAQ management & staff members attended the first annual (?!) student media banquet. General Manager Kyle Murphy impressed everyone with a heart-warming speech, announced that Music Director Benjamin Goodheart had won the election for next year’s GM, and honored other managers with prestigious awards. I won “Most Hummus Consumed in the WQAQ Office.”

Throughout the week our managers hosted info sessions on their positions for staff members who are running for management next year. So far we’ve got an awesome group of contenders. General staff: you don’t want to miss next week’s meeting!

The Guru - Beach Monster
FESTAPALOOZA IS ONE DAY AWAY!
Make sure you come early to see our opening acts, including The Midnighters, Great Caesar, and The Guru! The Guru hail from Connecticut and are sort of surfy, sort of psychedelic, extremely cool/calm/collected, and you’ll like them if you’re fond of things that are fun.
But if you’re working and can’t make the start of the show, do not fret! There will still be tons of awesome music and food for you to enjoy.
See you soon!
Bomb The Music Industry! - 25!
Too many exclamation marks? I disagree! Personally, I don’t think there could be enough as BTMI is going to perform at WQAQ’s #FESTAPALOOZA this Friday! Also on the bill are TITUS ANDRONICUS, THE FRONT BOTTOMS, THE GURU, GREAT CEASAR, and THE MIDNIGHTERS! It’s free for QU students and $5 bucks for everyone else. There will be free food, a guitar give away, and free FROYO! Doors are at 5:30; we’ll see you there! That’s a lot of exclamation marks.
Then come to Festapalooza, hang out with Titus Andronicus and Bomb the Music Inudstry, and fit in with all the other free things!
Free music, free food, and just announced: a FREE raffle for a $500 acoustic guitar, courtesy of Brian’s Guitars in Hamden CT. Don’t miss out! And if you’re a non-QU student, tickets are only $5.
