**** GENERAL FAQ ****
Who the FAQ is WECB?
On paper WECB is Emerson’s freeform radio station. What this means is that we have a studio and we broadcast student-run radio shows from 9am-12am seven days a week. These shows stream online on our website at www.wecb.fm .
But we’re also so much more than just a radio station! We are a completely student-run organization comprised of a range of teams, including Events, Marketing, Audio Production, and Music Staff, in addition to the DJs that make up the programming of our station.
What does each team do?
WECB Live! is our events team. This team hosts events for Emerson musicians such as open mics, showcases, and hires national touring bands to perform at Emerson. This team is also in charge of renting out gear to student musicians.
If you’re interested in event management, are highly motivated and enthusiastic to get involved, and are passionate about sharing music with the Emerson music community this is the team for you!
Milk Crate is dedicated to sharing news and content about the current music scene and culture. They curate our music blog, Milk Crate, with content such as album and concert reviews, host the Staff Pix radio show, create a relevant Zine each semester, and meet weekly to discuss upcoming projects and events.
If you’re interested in meeting others who share a love for music, are keen to write reviews, and/or are interested in covering local shows this is the team for you!
Marketing and Art…WECB has a big need for promotional content. This includes posters, graphics, videos, merchandize, social media posts, and more! The Marketing team is responsible for creating said content.
If you’re interested in flexing your creative design skills, are capable of a quick production turnaround time, and want to collaborate with other talented artists then this is the team for you!
Audio Team is Emerson’s think-tank for audio creatives. This team learns the in-and-outs of both live and digital audio production in order to assist with our many events throughout the year. Additionally this team aids local artists in recording and producing their albums and/or EPs.
If you’re highly motivated, have a passion for audio tech, desire to learn more about live audio and digital production, and are keen to help out at our events this is the team for you!
