Gabrielle Woleske '18 General Manager
Hi there! I am Gabrielle, a proud Wisconsinite and Packers fan. It was in the great state of Wisconsin that I cultivated my love of music–in particular, hip/hop, rap and jazz. My favorite artists are Brad Mehldau, Robert Glasper, The Bad Plus, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Lauryn Hill. In addition to radio, I am an International Relations major with a concentration in the Spanish language, and I can think of no greater global unifier than music. Welcome to WRCU!
Matthew Kavanagh '17 Acting General Manager
Hi, my name is Matt and I'm a Senior from Syracuse, NY. I study political science and have a strong interest in both elections and the socio-cultural implications held within languages. I’ve served as both Assistant Music Director and Tech Director in my tenure here at WRCU and am excited to see where I can bring WRCU this semester as Acting GM. My passions include punk music, coffee, cooking, record collecting, hiking, poetry, architecture, beer, and all things Swedish. I plan on opening my own business that somehow fuses coffee, beer and music when I’m older, shoot me an email if you have any ideas or want to know more. I look forward to the joys WRCU may continue to bring.
Marc Maggiore '18 Program Director
Did anyone order a political science and educational studies double major from Boston that loves hip hop, house, alternative, and the occasional Frank Sinatra? Nope? Well too bad cause that’s me; Marc Maggiore. I am Program Director after my semester abroad in South Korea. Besides being apart WRCU, I am also a Senator for the class of 2018, President of Colgate Smash Club, member of Charred Goosebeek, and an Intern for Colgate’s Athletic Marketing Team. Some of my favorite artists are Kid Cudi, Jon Bellion, Kyle, GoldLink, Kaytranda, and others. Hear more on my show “Hip Hop and Society.” Peace
Claire Binder '17 Assistant Program Director
Hey there! My name is Claire and I’m a senior from Oakland, CA. I’m a French major and Peace & Conflict Studies minor with an unconventional interest in the tech industry. I host an indie/alternative radio show called Alt-love that will be celebrating its fifth consecutive semester on-air (excluding my brief stint abroad in Dijon, France). In addition to being Assistant Program Director at WRCU, I’m also part of the Colgate Ballet Company, Shock Dance Group, and take my exceptional passion for music a step further as President of SCOPE, a club that brings live concerts to campus. My other interests include creative writing, Impressionist art, period drama, Jane Austen, and discovering new people and places.
Luke Felty '18 Music Director
My name is Luke and I'm a Junior from Georgia. I'm an English Lit and Creative Writing student, but you wouldn't know that from this shoddy bio. If you ever want to talk about books or music you can find me reading in the station and various other cozy places around campus (you can identify me by the large red beard). Peace and good listening to all.
Matthew Lee '18 Production Director
Hey, My name is Matt and I’m from Vancouver, Canada. I’m a junior studying computer science and music. I like to listen to a lot of jazz, hip-hop, and electronic music. Some of my favorite artists include Robert Glasper Experiment, Anderson Paak, and Chet Faker. In addition to my involvement with the radio, I am part of Colgate’s Thought into Action incubator program, SCOPE, and the jazz ensemble.
Dawson Highland '19 Tech Director
I’m a sophomore from Austin, TX living my dream of working in radio. I was raised on KUT (and eventually KUTX) back home, so broadcast is in my blood. I listen to jazz, hip hop, blues, rnb, soul, Americana, and occasionally psych rock. At any given time, I can be found about to declare a theatre major.
Isaiah Keyes '19 Promotions Director
I have both a passion and a face for radio. I can help you advertise anything but myself. Will work for music. Occasionally seen with a beard, until that guy steals it back.
