Next Meeting

Good news:  The distortion issue on the microphones in the Broadcast studio has been remedied.

As we complete the final two weeks of the fall semester, congratulations and thanks to all BIRN DJs for our best broadcast season yet!

There will be no more meetings this semester.  All shows will continue as usual through the last official school day, Friday, December 21.  If you have a conflict and can’t do your show during week 15, please let us know right away (mgmt@thebirn.com) so we can adjust the schedule.

If you would like to do any shows during the winter break, you can!  Just send us the details (mgmt@thebirn.com) and we’ll put in on the calendar for you.

For the spring semester, we will be accepting show proposals during the week of January 14.  Submit yours early that week (but no sooner, please) for the best chance at your preferred time slot.  We will begin broadcasting Tuesday, January 22.

Because of the MLK holiday on January 21, the first meeting of the spring semester will be in week two – Monday, January 28 in the usual place (22 The Fenway, room 112):

6:00 PM – Noobs
7:00 PM – Peeps (that’s you)

Friendly reminder:  Attending our weekly meetings is a requirement for all BIRN DJs.
