Save KDCS sign now

As of January 1, 2006, Drake Bulldog Radio, KDCS, will switch to a new format. This new format, 2/3 alternative rock and 1/3 classic rock (as the station will define them,) will supercede the previous format and define the music played on our station. As per the rules as they currently stand, radio shows (including specialty shows) will be unable to go outside this format. That means, no indie rock shows, no oldies, no jazz, no hip-hop, no punk, nothing not defined as alternative or classic rock. DJs will not be able to bring in their own music and will have to work with what the station gives them, making DJs essentially people who come in to talk between the songs their given. We don't feel this is in the best interests of the station nor the listeners, and we will act accordingly, whether that means for some of us not doing a show anymore or not tuning in anymore unless this new format becomes more tolerant and more flexible for shows, especially specialty ones.

    Depriving the station of the specialized shows deprives the station of its character.

    College radio stations are supposed to be about one thing: the students. This new format obviously does not support that goal. The specialty shows and student music are what should truly define the station. Playing just regular music will make it just ano

    The proposed changes to KDCS are rediculous, it would eliminate all point in having a student radio station in the first place, No one wants to hear the station's preset generic stuff, people will stop listening altogether.

    How would this benefit Drake at all? There are already enough stations devoted solely to one genre of music, making them unable to hold my interest for extended periods of time. College stations are supposed to be a nice break from that!

    Just look at KJHK, Kansas University's college radio station, the DJs play whatever they want and they are one of the most successful college radio stations in the nation
