New managers at Flyer Radio taking career applications, suggestions for programs

A&E Editor
 
  In  many  ways,  it’s  a  new  ball 
game  over  at  Flyer  Radio,  WUDR 
(99.5 FM), located in ArtStreet.  
  Formed  in  1964,  Flyer  Radio 
teaches students broadcasting and 
management  while  presenting  di-
verse music.
  “We  play  mostly  [independent] 
rock,  but  disc  jockeys  can  play 
anything  that’s  in  the  station’s  li-
brary,” said Bobby Trick, WUDR’s 
general  manager  and  a  fifth-year 
computer  engineering  technol-
ogy  major.  “Our  main  audience  is 
students, but we also have a small 
audience of  listeners in the Dayton 
area.”
  According  to  Trick,  WUDR  has 
36  weekly  shows  on  its  program 
schedule,  and  jobs  at  the  station 
are open to students of  all majors.
  “We’ve  got  business  majors  do-
ing  our  promotions,”  Trick  said. 
“You don’t have to be in communi-
cations. If  you use iTunes, you can 
operate the station.”
