Georgia Hall: A listener let me know why WRUV DJs matter

By Georgia Hall, WRUV

The first show I ever had was a 6 to 9 a.m. slot on Wednesdays.

Dragging myself out of bed and making my way from the dorm room to the booth in the cold and the dark was always a bit of a struggle. My roommates thought I was a little crazy, and all I could say was “who wouldn’t want to play fuzzed out rock and synthpop music in an empty room while talking to yourself through a microphone at 6 o’clock in the morning?”

In all seriousness, though, some days it did feel like I was just talking into the void, and who really wants to listen to my mediocre music selections anyway? But one day I got a call from a hospital staff member at the UVM Medical Center. They wanted to let me know how much they loved my show and that they would always tune in on the drive home from their night shift. That phone call made me realize the value of being a DJ.

People are listening, and you can have a positive impact on someone’s day even if it’s just through music.

Being a member of the WRUV community was truly one of the best things I did at UVM.
