88.1 The 'Burg, Central Washington University's award-winning radio station, encourages students from all majors and backgrounds to get involved. Whether you are interested in hosting your own radio show or if you're part of a campus club/organization and want to host a group show, you are welcome to join. Bring some ideas or music preferences, and we'll provide all of the training you need to get started. No prior experience necessary. If you have questions, please email our student training team at kcwu_td@cwu.edu. Looking forward to seeing you around the station!

Step One: Info Session

Attend one of the two sessions:

1/10/23 @ 4pm in Black Hall Room 151

1/13/23 @ 11 in the SURC Theater

BRING A FRIEND! You can go through training at the same time and have a show together

Step Two: Show Development Session

You will meet with a student 'Burg staff member to talk about ideas for your show. If you don't have any ideas, we can help you!

 

Step Three: Tech Training

You will learn how to use all the tech needed to run your show including the studio console, automation system, and microphones.

After this training session: email elliottn1@cwu.edu to setup a Wide Orbit account (use your CWU email account)

 

Step Four: Practice Show Preparation

Get ready to host your first practice show by researching and writing content at home. Bring these notes and show outline to your Practice show.
 

Highly Encouraged: Talk to your trainer to schedule a sit-in during an active show. This allows you to meet other station members and see how they run their show

 

Step Five: Practice Shows

Most DJs host at least two practice shows on BURG2:

First show has help from trainer.

Second show is solo, but trainer will be available.

After the final practice show, email KCWU_PD@cwu.edu with the date & time of your show for an air check review.

 

Step Six: Air Check & Next Steps

The Program Director (KCWU_PD@cwu.edu) will review the content and provide notes. One of two possible outcomes:

1. An additional practice show is needed. This is normal. Use the feedback provided by the PD to improve your content and delivery.

2. Show passes the air check. PD will schedule a meeting to finalize the details about your show
