My name is Kanilyia Grimes and I am currently a radio DJ for WVVS 90.9 BlazeFM! This is my first semester doing so and I must say it is really easy. I personally thought it was going to be so hard because I compared it to the popular mainstream radio stations but I learned fairly quickly everything I needed to do. I only trained for about 2 weeks and I was ready to go on-air. During training you go on-air once and I believe at that point that’s when your nerves kick in. But as soon as you go on-air for the first time, any time after that is a piece of cake. I really love working for the station and I believe this is going to give me a great opportunity to be successful in the work field!
In the spirit of Valentine’s day weekend!
According to www.billboard.com Top 50 love songs of all time..The top five are as follows:
1. “Endless Love” Diana Ross and Lionel Riche (1981)
2. “Ill make love to you” Boys 2 Men (1994)
3. “We found love” Rihanna ft Calvin Harris (2011)
4. “How deep is your love” Bee Gees (1977)
5. “Silly Love Songs” Wings (1976)
All five of these love songs managed to stay number one on the billboards for weeks at a time. The releases of these songs range from 1976-2011. The invention of throwbacks make these songs timeless.If you don’t know a song on the list take a few minutes to listen and enjoy a great love song. Its believed that through these songs love still conquers all.
2014 is going to be a big year for us! We are currently training new DJs and we have a lineup of fresh, cool music! Stay tuned!
Heyy guys! Check it out. We have Vimeo now, so we’ll be posting videos soon.
Thanks to all who attended this event. Be sure to check out our vimeo page coming soon for updated CBI Videos and more.
For now check out these pictures from the event!
Classes start in a few weeks. So how many of us are planning to be broke within that first few weeks because of all those books? Or how many just added a few more thousand dollars to their debt wallet? I DID!
Besides the typical college student worries, there are a few cool things happening just as students flock back to campus.
Wake UP! Presented by Sin at the Wake Compound in Valdosta is hosting a concert with tons of bands on August 16th. It should be pretty fun! Not only will people be wake boarding, but there will be tons of live music and awesome people.
90.9 has been gaining a few new friends around town. We have a graphic artist friend who made some awesome flyers for us! Those will be posted soon. Some bands from around the region have also been asking to be put on rotation. WE’RE GETTING OURSELVES OUT THERE, FOLKS!
And then here’s another thing that is coming up soon:
Did you know that we have special callers?
Did you know that we have special listeners?
Did you know that we will have a contest called “Find Blaze.”
Through these three facts, YOU could win prize packs (don’t get too worked up, they’re just little gift baggies with cute little stuff that will most likely end up in the junk bin).
If you call in at a certain time while a DJ is on air, YOU might just win a little prize pack!
AND if you show up at the events we babble about, YOU could be a special listener because you actually listened to us and showed up! And this is our way of showing our appreciation for you!
The Local Eclectic and DJ Erin will be participating in such an idea. So listen up when they go on air. Details to come soon!
Uh hello? We got bumper stickers! So contact us and ask for one so you can slap one right on your car’s booty!I only had ordered ten as a first batch for testing their popularity. I had assumed that buying ten would be enough to cover the station’s inner circle and then buy more upon request. But oh no, people wanted more. [Smiley Face]. Now I am thinking about buying more bumper stickers. So if you want one, let Claire our promotions director know!
A part from bumper stickers, our promotions director is planning to put together prize packs for radio listeners. Listeners can win these prize packs through winning contests, showing lots of support for the station, and showing up to our on location events.
Gifts that will be included in these prize packs will include:
Bumpa stickas! Sick pens, possible local band CDs, non itchy cotton shirts, earbuds (for the very lucky winners), bracelets, nerf gun darts (courtesy of claire), and much more!
So listen in more, we may got all the cool shiz for you!
Since most of our DJ personalities are gone for the summer, our radio blog focusing on college radio life won’t be the hippest out there online. However, we will be blogging about once a week during the summer about our adventures of trying to making 90.9 the best college radio station in Georgia!
Then during the fall and spring school semesters, that’s when DJ’s will be all up in here expressing themselves on this blog!
So please stay with us as we evolve into a better station!
