Happy Birthday!

On November 25th, 1968 WDGC was granted permission to begin broadcasting on 88.3 FM.

We are celebrating a bit early, and for its forty-second birthday, WDGC got a brand new Ipod doc, as seen in the picture above.

Check out our first posts from 2008 to see photos of the original telegram from the FCC.

Tomorrow, on the 24th, WDGC will be handing out cotton candy in the cafeteria during all lunch periods. People who rock can jump to the head of the line! On the 25th, WDGC will celebrate both its birthday and Thanksgiving by bringing you the biggest variety of music--that's a promise!

Tune in and Rock out!

WDGC: Award Winning Radio!

WDGC DJs Eareen Yambao and Shane Gustafson were honored today at the John Drury High School Radio Awards hosted by North Central College.

Shane was recognized as one of the top five high school sportscasters in the nation, facing competition from as far away as Michigan and Connecticut. Shane had submitted a segment of his broadcast of last year's football game against Glenbard West.

Eareen received the third place award for his public service announcement. The 1:00 psa centered on the problem of distracted driving among teenagers and featured two girls having a contest about who could do the most things while driving. You can listen to the PSA by clicking on it to the right of this post. We will work on uploading Shane's sportscast as well.

Congratulations to Shane and Eareen!

Plans are already underway for next year's entries...
