NAZ GIRL ABOUT TOWN

Naz, Meet Your DJs!
By Christine G. Adamo

Burn down the disco
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
It says nothing to me about my life

Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ

Select lyrics from “Panic” by Morrissey and Johnny Marr (The Smiths)

Wait, don’t hang the DJs! It’s time to meet the DJs of WNAZ The Beat.

What’s that? You’ve never listened? Well, you’re in for a treat. This week, you’ll get a rare peek at a handful of Nazareth College DJs. These are the people who take time out of their already busy school schedules to curate weekly sets, introduce you to new or unfamiliar music and send shout outs to anyone brave enough to submit requests.

You can stream their shows online at Radio.Naz.edu/Listen.html. You can listen via Naz TV (access is included in your Residence Hall cable package). Or you can cue ’em up on your smartphone. (Check out the weekly set list below.) You can tweet ’em @WNAZTheBeat, suggest songs on Facebook or check out their in-studio selfies on Instagram.

Whatever you do, tune in. I promise you’ll like what you hear.

Rock on, DJs … Naz is listening!

Why DJ for WNAZ The Beat? When I was a kid, we listened to LPs on a turntable in our kitchen. Our kitchen! Music’s been a big part of my life and my taste is ridiculously eclectic. I love turning people on to stuff they’ve never heard and giving little-known artists airtime—old stuff, new stuff, in-between stuff. Songs from 1900 forward. The more obscure the better! Punk. Funk. Folk. Indy. Synth Pop. Blues. Spoken Word. It’s also a great way to entertain friends from all over the world.

FRIDAYS, 8-9pm

Why DJ for WNAZ The Beat? We have this radio (program) because show tunes seem to be a very clique thing—usually only listened to by a select number of people. By combining modern and classic tunes, we hope to get people to maybe add a bit of musical theatre to their day.

Why DJ for WNAZ The Beat? To make Sunday mornings relaxing and peaceful—and fill the air with the sweet sounds of songs that so many love, as well as songs that people soon will. I’ll also occasionally play my own music that I’ve written. And (I’d) love to play the music of other Naz students on my show.

So, dear listener, how can you get involved? WNAZ The Beat is hosting an Open Mic Night this coming Thurs., Oct. 22, at Colie’s in George Residence Hall. The event kicks off at 6pm. Sing a song. Strum a guitar. Recite a poem. Or cheer your friends on, as they perform. There’ll be FREE pizza and a chance to win a $15 Record Archive gift certificate.

WNAZ The Beat also hosts meetings for anyone interested in getting some airtime. If you missed the first few? Don’t sweat it. You can still get involved and get your in-studio career off the ground. Contact Erin Griffin, club president, for more info. Again, there’s FREE food.

Bored with commercial-radio tunes? Tune in to WNAZ The Beat instead!
