Attention Alum from 1972, '82 and '02

Homecoming is on the way, and the classes of 1972, '82 and '02 have reunions and homecoming activities planned. How about being a part of Huskie Radio, too? We are working on a special alumni episode of our show Music Matters . We are looking for alum from those years to record a short intro for a song that reminds you of your time at Hersey High School. That recording will be used in our Music Matters show, which will stream on Huskie Radio and be available on-demand via Mixcloud . This is super easy to do: 1) Pick a song you would like to introduce. This song should be something from your time at Hersey -- a song that reminds you of a specific event, or person, or activity associated with Hersey High School. 2) Using a voice recording app on your phone, record a short introduction to the song and tell a little bit about why that song reminds you of your time at Hersey.  Be sure to include your name and your graduation year. See some examples below. Send the file to jhhs.libr

Huskie Radio is Here!

Huskie Radio is online! Right now, we are testing our stream and will soon be broadcasting right out of the ARC Studio in the Library. Also, students will be commanding these airwaves soon. We will hold auditions for the Huskie Radio Morning Show, and offer other times and slots for students who want to become DJs and host programing on Huskie Radio. We have registered with the FCC, and will also be paying royalties through SoundExchange. Right now, we have several thousand songs in our library, which is nearly a week of music playing constantly without ever hearing the same song twice. About 75% of our music rotation is Top 40 and recent hits. Then about 10% Classic Rock, 10% 80s/90s and 5% Oldies. 6am-12am -- Regular Rotation: Hits and Greats 12am-1am -- Midnight Blues : An hour of classic Blues to ease you into your early morning or late night, depending on your mood. 1am-3am -- Overnight Jazz : Two hours of an eclectic mix of jazz, from Dixieland, to Swing to BeBop -- we have it al
