  • Help Support Radio Uprising!

    August 12th, 2011

    If you’ve ever tuned in to WVKR on Thursday at 4pm you’ve heard Radio Uprising, an hour of youth-produced talk radio covering anything from community news to critical discussion organized by the Children’s Media Project. Together with WVKR, the CMP gives youth an independent voice and outlet.

    CMP provides an exceptional learning experience for youth in media arts. Youth at CMP experience positive risk taking, community involvement, and artistic advancement, things all kids need to succeed and grow in their communities. But they need your help. Media equipment and studio space is expensive. In order to create quality programming for youth and provide a safe space to creatively explore after school, we need to pay rent and update our equipment. Your donation is tax-exempt and the proceeds go directly to help fund the creativity of the kids!

    With only 9 days to go, every dollar makes a difference! Help support the Project at Kickstarter.

    It’s Baseball Season!

    April 13th, 2011

    Hold on to your hats, WVKR will be broadcasting live coverage of Vassar the men’s baseball game against University of Rochester on April 23 at 12 noon.
    Tune in for a play-by-play commentary by Dean of Students, D.B. Brown. Turn the dial to 91.3 or catch our live stream at wvkr.org. The only thing you’ll be missing is the hot dogs, but our multi-talented Dean/DJ/Public Address Announcer will more than make up for it.

    Democracy Now!

    March 3rd, 2011

    Since last Thursday, we have been having difficulties with Democracy Now due to our recent attempts to implement a new program for managing the automated playlist. Today, there was dead air from 8:00 am to 8:12 am, at which point Dem Now began playing. We would like, primarily, to apologize for this complication and, secondarily, to assure all of our listeners that it will be running smoothly as of today.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please send an email to techdirector@wvkr.org and get in touch with Raffi Kiureghian.


    Spring is here & alive // Live broadcast party!

    February 16th, 2011

    Spring is in the air(waves).

    In case you haven’t noticed, WVKR is officially broadcasting its spring programming!  Most of our community-based DJs are in their usual, day time spots.  The students DJs have once again played musical chairs, though.  Take a gander at the new program guide for more details.

    Party & Convo going down in POK!

    WVKR will be co-hosting an on-air party & conversation on Sunday, February 27 from noon-3pm.  DJ Bill Skillz will be spinning from The Workshop for the Power Kingdom @ 546 Main Street, Poughkeepise (the former Sharkie’s building).  Everyone’s invited to come down to Main Street POK to dance, hang out, and discuss Poughkeepsie (the Power Kingdom).  What do we love about it?  What would we like to see happen.  There’ll also be a fun model of Poughkeepsie that we can play with.  This is a family-friendly event.
