Hey Guys, Jimmy Here.
My time at WECS is coming to an end! Last year around this time, I did my Top Albums of 2015 (So Far), and although I could have repeated that idea, I figured there are a lot of those on the internet, so I decided to do something a bit more personal.
This is a list of the top albums that went across my desk as Music Director, and why they were so important. Although most are some of my favorite to listen to, all of them have an empirical story behind them as well.
For the past few years, the WECS Radio Club has packed their things for South by Southwest (SXSW), in Austin, Texas. SXSW is one of the world’s largest music festivals and the premiere event for Independent Music. The Club has been 3 times over the past 5 years, and unfortunately, did not attend this year.
To make up for this, our Music Director, Jimmy, went down to see Austin a few weeks ago, and although it was “off-season” SXSW, that didn’t change the liveliness of the music scene.
The Office has been quite without students around to talk to, but our radio is still making as much noise as ever.
A lot has happened this past year that we would like to tell you about, and also our plans for the future. Our Operations Manager and Music Director, Jimmy, will be leaving soon, and in will come new students to keep the station running and making it even better!
