How’d you get involved with KSDB?
I had a good friend who was a DJ during our first semester at K-State. It sounded like something that I would love to get involved in, so I started DJ-ing the next semester.
What exactly does your job entail?
I’m on the promotions staff for KSDB. It’s a big job, and luckily there are three of us to handle different tasks, which include events, social media, and tickets. I manage the social media accounts. This entails keeping each platform (including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook) updated, promoting events, responding to tweets and Facebook messages, making liners for DJ’s to read each week, and looking for creative ways to promote the station in a positive light.
Favorite part about your position? Or the station?
I love that KSDB is different than all of the other stations in the area. Aside from variation in music, I think that there is a lot of passion on exec staff as well as among the DJs.
What’s your biggest goal for the semester?
To get a strong follower base on each of our social media platforms. To reach out to our listeners and followers in interactive and engaging ways.
Give us 3 albums or artists you’ve been vibing with lately.
Strange Trails – Lord Huron
Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit – Courtney Barnett
Little Neon Limelight – Houndmouth <—(FAV)
And, a guilty pleasure?
You can hear Al’s alternative shift with her BFF Courtney Mondays from noon-1pm.
