COVID Update: WHCL Back in the Station!
After almost two semesters of remote broadcasting, WHCL student DJs are finally allowed back in the station for the last few weeks of the semester. Student DJs have been making radio work throughout the pandemic by recording shows in their dorms or from home and then uploading them in advance for broadcasting. While this has enabled students to become increasingly creative with their show concepts, Hamilton students miss being in-person in the station. The change will of course come with some added responsibilities for student DJs. DJs will have to properly sanitize the station, wear gloves while operating the soundboard, and leave their show 10 minutes before the hour in order to not cross paths with the next scheduled DJ. However, this is a small price to pay for the in-person WHCL experience. As you pass the station over the coming weeks, make sure to peak into the second-floor window. You will likely see a DJ or two pumping the wattage through the window!
Live Music Performances Back On-Campus
Although a few on-campus bands have played out of their windows or at other unofficial outdoor locations this past semester, as of Thursday, April 22, the Dunham tent was officially open for live music performances. The first acapella concert since March 2020 was hosted by one of Hamilton’s all-gender groups, The Hamiltones. In the usual first concert of the year fashion, the “Tones” introduced their new first-years before showcasing their senior solos. Over the last few weeks of the semester, more performance groups including Special K and Tumbling After will be hosting concerts, along with WHCL with an open-mic night! Performance groups were given access to this space through a lottery run by student activities. While it may not be the same as the Chapel, it sure is nice to hear live music again.

How to Make a Living as an Artist
What does business have to do with the arts? Kate Spencer K’79 learned about this the hard way when she walked in on two professors competing in a critique of her art. “It didn’t even have anything to do with me,” she said. “It was just two professors debating, but I had to watch my pride deflate right in front of them. I learned that day that my ego was something that I had to manage if I really wanted to make a living as an artist.”
