Farewell to Alexandria Kesek

View larger image

After plenty of music and laughs, Alexandria "Alex" Kesek bids WKUF and Kettering University farewell. Alex joined WKUF in 2013 and has done quite a bit both behind the mic and behind the scenes. This includes (but isn't limited to the following):
  • Former co-host (under the name "DJ Paradise") of To Be Decided
  • PR Director
  • The voice of The Good Beans Cafe spot that airs on WKUF
  • Co-host of our 50th anniversary tribute to Sgt. Pepper, which aired 6-1-17 thru 6-4-17
  • Member of the Music Sub-Committee
  • Contributed to the creation of Rewind (our weekly 2 hour block of music from the 90s and 2000s), which debuted on 3-3-17
  • Occasionally did some on-air appearances in 2017 under the name "Quesadilla Holder" (don't ask)
She also introduced me to such artists as Marina & the Diamonds and Ellie Goulding!
I'd like to take a moment to thank Alex for the hours of entertainment she has provided on the air and the hard work she put in behind the scenes at WKUF. She will be missed. 

Bidding Adieu to The Brickyard

After plenty of music and fun factoids, the student-run show The Brickyard is coming to an end as DJ Evenstar bids WKUF and Kettering University adieu. Debuting in 2013, The Brickyard has been a Friday evening fixture during its run. I'd like to take a moment to thank DJ Evenstar for the hours of entertainment she has provided on the air and the hard work she put in behind the scenes at WKUF as Station Manager (among other things). You will be missed. The final broadcast of The Brickyard airs Friday, March 25th from 6 pm to 8 pm. 

Along with music from a variety of genres, DJ Evenstar also regularly educates her listeners with fun facts on a variety of topics. Below are a few of the things I've learned from listening to The Brickyard:​

  1. The person who invented the Frisbee was cremated and made into frisbees after he died

  2. About 8,000 Americans are injured by musical instruments each year.

  3. The Bible is the most shoplifted book in the world.

  4. In 1895, Hampshire police handed out the first ever speeding ticket, fining a man for doing 6mph!

  5. New-born giraffes stand at around 6 feet tall, making them taller than most adult humans.
