With so many fantastic new and old shows being broad to the WIRE airwaves, we had a difficult time choosing our first DJ of the Week for the fall semester. Derek Cannistraro is not only WIRE's own Music & Library Manager, but he also is the host of Awesome Oscillations - which you can catch every Monday at 6pm. Check out our interview with Derek below!
Q: You've been with us for quite some time. Just how long have you been a WIRE DJ?
A: I've been a WIRE DJ since freshman year so I'm starting my 3rd year now.
Q: What is your favorite part of being a WIRE DJ?
A: My favorite part about being a WIRE DJ is being able to use the production station. I just love messing around with the keyboard and production cool stuff.
Q: What’s the best thing that’s ever happened during, or because of your radio show?
A: My personal favorite thing that happened during my show was the time my show was on April Fool's day and I just played a bunch of Rick Astley Remixes and it was a fire mix.
Q: We understand your show was on hiatus for a while, what made you decide to start it back up?
A: After not doing my show for most of last year, I kind of started to miss it and wanted to do a revive this year. So far the show has been running fantastically and I couldn't be happier with it!
