This week’s DJ of the Week is Sam Hennigh. You can listen to him of Wednesdays from 4-6pm. He also writes movie and video game reviews for the website on Saturdays.
Where are you from and what is your year/major?
From Atchison, KS and Journalism Major.
Why did you join KSDB?
At first I joined KSDB for my practicum, but I really loved talking on the air and writing reviews for the website.
What have you learned from working at KSDB?
I have learned quite a bit about what goes into making a radio station work. People might think it’s just talking on the air and listening to music, but it is way more than that. It’s about community.
What is your favorite part about KSDB?
My favorite part about KSDB is the website. I love the look and feel of it. It shows that we are more than just a college radio station but as a group that wants to get the community involed and meet with the people who make the station great.
What are a few artists/bands you’ve been listening to lately.
Lately, I have been listening to a lot of Green Day actually. I finally listened to the American Idiot Broadway Musical soundtrack and have gone back to listen to the original songs that I grew up listening to.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
My favorite movie of all time has to be Saving Private Ryan. The film is one of the greatest war movies made. It has some of the biggest set pieces for war films but it also has a lot of emotional attachment to the characters. It took another look at World War II and showed the brutality and sacrifice of that war where as most WWII films before were more upbeat and heroic, but this film showed the bad that came with the victory.
