DJs of the Week: Future Vibes Record Shop

DJs of the Week: Future Vibes Record Shop

Last week's DJs of the Week were George Peshkov, Dakota Gorkun, and Austin Chester of Future Vibes Record Shop! George has been a WIRE DJ since his Freshman year, originally hosting Future Groove. George and Dakota (Vibes Radio) merged shows, and the addition of Chester created what is now Future Vibes Record Shop. 

Both George and Dakota had been interested in working on college radio, searching for an outlet of their appreciation of music. For Chester, it's a good excuse to hang out with his friends. Dakota loves being able to step away from his work to be able to share music with others. George enjoys just being able to walk into the studio, while Chester is always trying to find ways to get kicked off the air. When listening in, you can expect to hear a variety of underground hip-hop and rap. Chester's favorites include Hellfyre and Rhymesayers, and Dakota recommends A Tribe Called Quest, MF DOOM, along with Knxwledge and Dilla. For George, "no show is complete without a little bit of Mr. Carmack." As to what to expect from the boys themselves, George recalls a time when "we had Chester repeat the lyrics to a hip-hop track, but replaced all the swears with a pre-arranged list of substituted words" As for the future, you can look forward to "Vibes. A beautiful mess. So tune in." - George, Chester and Dakota

Peter Speaks The Truth!

Peter Speaks The Truth!

Happy Monday, everyone! It's the second day of Spring, but you wouldn't ever think so with all this snow. Let's celebrate the soon-to-be wonderful weather with this week's DJ of the Week! Today we joined Peter Gray to hear more about his talk show, Peter Speaks.

Q: What got you to join WIRE, Peter?

A: I joined WIRE because I wanted to find a way to use my voice talent and have people listen to it over the radio.

Q: Why should new listeners check out your show?

A: I think people should listen to my show to hear some different thoughts on some things that go on in today's world. Nothing too controversial!

Q: Tell us about a great thing that happened during one of your shows.

A: In my episode titled "Cheeseburgers", I made the episode surprisingly funny. Normally, I don't aim for humor, so that's a big deal. (And people loved it!)

Q: What's your secret to a successful show?

A: I do not have much of a secret. But what I mostly do is take a look at things that happened during the week and think of the best way to let people know of my experience. I'm starting a new method where I write my script as a chapter of a book and read it in the designated voice.
