Radioactivity issue

Update 2 Feb: Radioactivity feed is functional!

Our Radioactivity playlist feed is not currently working. (Clicking on the clock icon to the left reveals the last 24 hours of WNJR's playlist as recorded by the Radioactivity software.) The service provider is aware of the problem and working on it--Radioactivity should be restored by the evening of Wednesday 1 February.

on 91.7 fm WNJR
Pictured above: 
COM250 Students Kate Loy and Eric Grygiel during the performance of Surviving Today Written by W&J senior Anna V. Blake.

For the month of January, Theatre and Communication professor, William Cameron is teaching RADIO DRAMA (COM250).  Students enrolled in Radio Drama make up the cast and crew of the radio dramas broadcast every Thursday of the month starting at 2:30pm.

The class performs at least three dramas every production day and the students work together as the actors, writers, producers, Foley artists, and the technical staff for each program.  Students meet every day of the week in order to be prepared for the performances on Thursday. 

Students are graded on creativity, resourcefulness, preparedness, focus, listening, respect for fellow students, and ability to work with the technical aspects.  Each student was required to achieve Level 1 Certification and therefore is able to have their very own radio show! 

*Make sure you tune in to 91.7 fm WNJR for the final production day of Radio Dramas on Thursday, January 26th!*
