"This Goes to 11" Blooper Reel

October 22, 2021

Hi everyone and TGIF! 

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Excellence in Radio Scholarship and Training Fund, the blooper reel for "This Goes to 11" has been unlocked! We had a lot of fun filming this video greeting for World College Radio Day!  This look behind the scenes, makes it evident that being part of our team is a lot of fun!

Please continue to share the link with everyone you know. If we reach $3,500 we will be able to help two more students AND it will unlock a behind the scenes video for the making of "The Nightmare Before World College Radio Day" musical.

We hope you have a great weekend, filled with laugher! 

-Anabella Poland and the WMSC Student Management Team



What has the team been up to? We are glad you asked!

Aside from all the flurry of activity related to World College Radio Day and day-to-day operations, our team participated in coverage of Vice President Kamala Harris' visit to campus to promote vaccines and highlight the importance of federal funding for childcare.

The team has also been training apprentice DJs for the first time in person in 20-months, participated in MSU Hispanic Heritage Month Block Party, Org Fair and is preparing for the College Broadcasters Inc Conference and Awards coming up next week. WMSC is nominated for a total of seven awards including the Joel Willer Award in recognition of dedication and service to student electronic media for General Manager Anabella Poland. 

The September / October bi-monthly newsletter is out and you can keep up with the latest and greatest from our team there too. https://wmscradio.com/newsletter/

As always, we are lucky to have such committed family and friends of WMSC that continue to support our efforts. The drive remains open for another ten days, and although we set a goal and blew past it, we are still in fundraising mode to recognize more students. Thank you for sharing the link with everyone you know!


Sincerely, 

Anabella Poland & the WMSC Student Management Team. 

 

Lucky 13!

Thirteen days to go and we smashed our second fundraising goal!  We are super thankful to everyone who is supporting this drive by either giving a gift or sharing this link so others can participate too.  This effectively means that you have unlocked the video of all the "This Goes to 11" bloopers, and I assure you that is being prepared as I type! 

That said, even though we reached our "goal", we still have almost two weeks left of this yearly campaign, and the more funds we raise, the more students we can help. You can help us by sharing a link to this campaign along with one sentence or two about the impact college radio has had on your life or a loved one's life.  If we reach $3,500 we will share behind the scenes photos and video from the making of "The Nightmare Before World College Radio Day". In the meantime, here is a link the 9-track original musical students wrote (music and lyrics), recorded and produced to close off the 24-hour global World College Radio Day broadcast.

We thank you all from the bottom of our heart! We are #wmscstrong because each and everyone who is part of this family! 


Sincerely,

WOW! You took this one to 11 too!

October 04, 2021

In a matter of just five days, we not only reached our initial goal of $1,500, we smashed it! World College Radio Day (WCRD) was a huge success for everyone involved at WMSC. We put together 34 hours of great content. Our students were on WPIX morning show for 3 minutes! They interviewed with SiriusXM Hits 1's "The Morning Mash Up" and "Busted Open". It was a truly memorable return to in-person WCRD! 

This means you unlocked the "Weird Al" Yankovic, World College Radio Day interview! You can listen to it right here: https://soundcloud.com/wmsc/the-weird-al-yankovic-interview

With 26 days to go, we have set a new goal of $2,500 so that we can assist more deserving students defray the cost of tuition and send more students to training! 

When we meet our next goal of $2,500, we will release a video of ALL the bloopers we got while recording "This Goes to 11" video greeting. 

Thank you for your continued support of MSU students who volunteer at the campus radio station! You really took it to 11 too! <3
