Travel the World with the Campus Current

March 27th, 2012

Now that we are back from spring break, today’s episode of the Campus Current focuses on travel. We start by spotlighting two of the school-sponsored spring break trips, the US-Mexico Border trip, and the International Studies’ Cuba trip. Then we hear from Susan Vogel, the visiting professor who taught this year’s Ribicoff seminar in the Art Department, who discusses the travels of African art objects into the art world and where her own research has taken her. Finally, we look at travel on a more local level, by joining the Outing Club on a hike up Bonticou Crag.

Tune in this afternoon from 5-6!

Spring Break for WVKR

March 4th, 2012

Since most Vassar students, including many VKR DJs, are off campus for a two-week spring break, WVKR’s schedule is slightly different from March 3-18.  No student shows will air during this period, but your favorite community shows will still be broadcasting and a few DJs have added more time.  Check out the Program Guide section of this website to see the updated schedule for this week and next.  And tune back in to your favorite student shows starting Monday, March 19 to hear the new music they found over break!

Music! News style

February 27th, 2012

This week the Campus Current explores a topic near and dear to WVKR — music. Out of the music office and “into the streets,” we explore the musical outlets of Vassar campus. Evi and Magnolia speak to campus band, The Body Electric, about their shifting music style and their recent performance at the Apollo Theatre. Steph and Kyle  hear from one of Vassar’s talented a capella groups, Vassar Has Soul. Erik gives us a tour of Skinner Hall in celebration of its 80th anniversary. For our senior thesis corner, Molly brings in Matt Wheeler ’12 who is doing his Women’s Studies and Sociology thesis on disco, masculinity, and race.
