General Info

Arguably the best student group on campus, WCFM is the best darn radio station in all of Prospect. Maybe even in the entire Berkshire Quad!

WCFM is known primarily for rocking your collective face off.

And -- has a transmitter as powerful as a good hair dryer!

Check out our Shoutcast stream to listen in over the tubes of the Internet. You can always, though, tune your radios to 91.9 FM if you are within 10 miles of campus.

If you are interested in becoming a DJ, please email Emilie Voight at Emilie.R.Voight@williams.edu, and we will get you hooked up at one of our Notorious (for becoming spontaneous parties) DJ Training Sessions. DJs gain the privilege of enjoying all of WCFMs exclusive hot-hot-hot member's only benefits: incredible music library, sweet sound equipment good for rocking your own face off, bring the two best concerts Williams College experiences each year, being a part of an team of awesome if haphazard people.

If you are interested in attending one of WCFM's illustrious, mysterious board meetings, they are every Sunday night at 8:00pm in Hopkins 206.

If you are not a DJ and are interested in using our cash-money production studio, please contact our Production Director, Michael Kamida.

WCFM was founded in 1879. It went underground when frats were abolished in 1970-something, but resurfaced as a major force on campus when Adam Sober (not a joke) Ain took over in the year of our Savior, 2004. Maybe it was 2003.
