Ready for a blast from the past? This weekend, alumni from Buffalo State's student-run radio station, WBNY 91.3-FM, will retake the airwaves.
Beginning Friday, April 15, former WBNY dj's will be spinning tunes and taking donations for the station.
On Saturday, April 16, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., local musicians and WBNY alums will join together for an afternoon of fundraising and live music. "Rebellious Jukebox" will feature impromptu versions of caller requests live-to-air in the WBNY studio.
This year's show hosts are the dj's Cal Zone and Kevin Hosey. A band of noted Buffalo-based musicians will perform song requests in exchange for a donation of any amount. All funds raised will go to the WBNY Alumni chapter to help update station equipment.
WBNY-FM 91.3 has been Buffalo’s Original Alternative for over 25 years. The station is completely student-run and funded solely by Buffalo State’s student activity fee. A source for local and underground music since its inception, WBNY also airs innovative talk shows; artist interviews; coverage of special on-campus events; and Buffalo State football, basketball, and hockey games.
Listen to 91.3 FM on your radio or via live web stream. Call in your requests for "Rebellious Jukebox" at (716) 878-5104.
