The next four editions of Pinkney Hall (9-10 a.m. Fridays) will have the following themes:
April 19 — We are preempted for the Buggy races!
April 26 — Tune in on April 26 and hear songs of spring and all that goes with it.
May 3 — Kenny Joe will be out of town. Enjoy automation or a special guest DJ!
May 10 — Ever wonder why it’s called “Pinkney Hall”? One reason is that Elektra Records was founded in Pinkney Hall. On May 10, we’ll play some tunes from the early days of Elektra.
May 17 — We will feature music from the English folk revival of the 1960s and 1970s.
Requests that fit these themes can be made prior to the shows by email to email@example.com or during the show to the WRCT request line (412-621-9728).
It’s over…we did it!
At 3am this morning, WRCT was crowned the Soundtap Madness Tournament Champion! If you haven’t heard, Soundtap Madness was a march-madness style tournament where 64 college radio stations from across the country battled it out to see who could log the most listening hours through the Soundtap website. We survived through eight grueling matches against other valiant college radio stations such as WRUV, The Core, and KTRU. And with a total of 3386 logged hours in the final round, we came out on top, We are the top college radio station in the nation!
The participation we saw during this competition was absolutely incredible. At peak times, over 200 people were streaming WRCT. We could never have done this without the massive support from the CMU community, and especially our WRCT alumni; you guys are the best! Thank you to everyone who stayed up crazy late, encouraged others to stream, and had so much WRCT pride. GO WRCT.
Thanks to some incredible support from passionate Alumni an!d WRCTers, we have made it to the Finals of Soundtap Madness! In this competition, the top 64 non-commercial radio stations in the world are facing off in a head-to-head, 18-day tournament that is being decided by yinz, the listeners. We have made it this far, through some grueling rounds and now all we have to do is beat KTRU (Rice University)! We can do it, but we need your help!!
