18.11.2012 meeting minutes
Hello everyone! I hope you’re enjoying these Sandy days as much as I am. Anyway, here are the minutes for last night’s meeting!

Josh--Don’t print stuff in the newsroom, that is for WIXQ business only.

Cody (Channeling Shannon)--
CMJ was a thing that happened. They lived it up, kept it crispy, and if you are interested in going to CMJ next year, talk to him about what you need to do to make that happen. We are going to try and play music in the dining halls. On a scale of one to ten, we ranked the importance of it at 11, so it’s a pretty big deal. However, some show formats don’t really fit the dining hall styles, so only some people’s show’s will be played. We’re going to try really hard to figure this all out because, it’s an ELEVEN. Please keep the station door to the hallway open so we seem more opening. We are all nice people and it’ll be good to show that to the world…just by keeping the door open. However, if you’re leaving and it’s at night and no one is after you close the door. Howe--If you know of any local businesses that’d like to underwrite with us, let him know!

Also, bumper stickers.

Tyler--Fill out your DJ info sheets. And you can submit picturesto his e-mail for your DJ page. You can also e-mail him about your show format, instead of it being “variety” on the grid. We are also in the process in getting a new website. If you have any suggestions for features or anything, we are open to them. Just let us know!

Paula--GOOD JOB TRAINEES! (Especially the ones that showed up to the meeting, good job. Pats for Patrick)

If anyone knows someone who is interested in joing WIXQ, they need to wait until next semester. However, some training will be happening until the second week of November IF YOU ARE A NEW TRAINEE, WE NEED YOUR M NUMBERS.

Log your songs under the people that trained you, but keep an eye out for your name. Once your name comes up, log there!

You need to make a promo for your show! They are due November 15. If you don’t have them in by then, you can get a strike.

Luke & Matt--Make commercials for campus things

PROMOS ARE DUE NOVEMBER 15.
Stop by at Luke or Matt’s office hours to get that done. If their hours don’t work for you, e-mail Matt to figure something out. Here’s his e-mail: chiefannouncer@wixq.com Please rotate commercials, especially underwriters. They’re important!

The automation software is acting up, so if you go to put it on and it’s not there POWER DOWN. Follow the rules to powering down,

Doc--has been here for 36 years.

Brook--Play metal. And if you play metal, welcome to the family.

Jared & Nick--
STOP TAKING THE TOP 30 CDS, ESPECIALLY THE TOP TEN. BRING THEM BACK.
Nick will be putting a playlist on the computer of top 30 songs, play them at the top of the hour. He’ll be able to keep track of stuff. And really though, playing just one song an hour isn’t that hard. He also plans on doing some top 30 stuff with the automation. BRING THOSE CDS BACK.

Alea--If you want tickets for a Chameleon show, please just ask me. I’ll see what I can do for you. You can e-mail me at secretary917@wixq.com or you can find/ask me on Facebook. I really don’t care.

We are also in the process of getting a listserve to send out e-mails. In the meantime, check/join the Facebook group to get all of your latest WIXQ updates.

Bri--
If there is something you need to tell her or Shannon, you NEED TO E-MAIL THEM AT THEIR WIXQ E-MAIL. Do not use Facebook or text messaging to tell them you can’t make your show/meetings/whatever. Their e-mails are: stationmanager@wixq.com and programdirector@wixq.com

If the computer is acting up, you NEED to log your songs by handwriting them.

Next semester we will try and do a new music show. We’ll cycle DJs and use the top 30. More details once we figure it out.

We had an emergency election for News Coordinator.
