WESU Record Fair: April 15, 2012
The WESU Spring 2012 Community Record Fair And Sale At Wesleyan University
is approaching fast. April 15th from 11AM-4PM we’ll be selling some wares there along with a variety of vendors. There will be a couple food trucks outside once again. I’ve definitely found some gems there in the past and am looking forward to finding some more.
The fair can be found just off High Street in Middletown at Beckham Hall (45 Wyllys Ave., Middletown, CT 06459 to be precise).

After all the WFMU fair isn’t around again until the end of October!



We (Josh & Rick) will be at this record fair on the campus of Wesleyan University.  It’s the 3rd one and it is still growing – it’s been better and better each time and now there are about 8-10 more vendor spaces so it should continue that trend.   And it’s FREE!

There will also be a pizza vendor so you know you can’t lose.  Pizza. Records. Oh and a prize wheel! I have it on good authority some of the prizes might just be a Lava Lamp, a sealed Dio “Last In Line” record, board games, and Leonard Cohen DVDs.

Ben Michael –  General Manager Of WESU
You might not know this, but I (Rick) have been involved with community radio for a long freaking time.  Monday through Friday I get up and go to WESU in Middletown (Wesleyan University’s community radio station) and set up the day’s automated schedule.  I’m the only part time employee while Ben (pictured above) is the only full-time employee.  The rest of our staff is all volunteer (as were Ben and I before being put into our current positions) and they do a great job.

Recently (as of a couple weeks ago) WESU made the jump to 6,000 watts of broadcasting power!  It’s quite the jump from its previous power of 1500 watts (though there was a brief interim power output of 3,000 watts).  Listen to the 88.1 FM frequency and let us know where you tune in from by emailing

To check out the full schedule and / or listen online you can visit the website here:  The schedule includes our friend Anthony’s show, the Needle Drop, and our friend DJ Lokash’s show, Bassment Beats. It includes some other great syndicated shows of the musical and public affairs variety as well (seriously, just go check out the website and full schedule).

The last thing on this subject I want to mention is ME ME ME!  I am returning to the air waves after an absence of a couple years.  I will be doing a very late night show so if you are up at 2AM on every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.  Check the blog about the show here:  After it airs, I post the show up on the blog too (if you don’t have to be awake at that time). 

There’s also, in general, a ton of great programming on the left hand side of the dial on the radio.  Listen to the radio from time to time and even on the regular!  RADIO RADIO RADIO!
