Frequently Asked Questions about getting involved at Bulls Radio
- Where is the station located on the University of South Florida campus?
- The Bulls Radio studio is located on the ground floor of the Marshall Student Center. You can enter through the hallway next to Beef O Brady's next to the Safe Team Offices. We’re always happy to give a tour and tell you more about getting involved with the station.
- What kind of music does the station play?
- Bulls Radio ’s format is very diverse. Typically, music programming is organized into block formats including classical, jazz, rock, rap, blues, reggae, traditional, experimental, and international music from around the world. Specialty shows are generally aired at night during a regular weekly time slot. Such shows focus on a particular genre of music like African, ska, punk, noise, indie rock, funk, r&b, classic rock, heavy metal, blues, avant-garde classical, and big band jazz.
- How do I, a University of South Florida student, get involved with Bulls Radio ?
- Simple. Stop by the station at any time and ask to fill out a DJ application; you don’t need any fancy credentials or experience, but we do need just a little bit of info about you. The Programming Director will get in touch with you soon about the next training session.
- The first step to working at Bulls Radio is attending a training session. A training session is a one time event where you are taught the fundamentals of running a radio station and how all the equipment works. When you feel that you are ready to go solo (usually after 8-10 weeks), you will record your last hour of on-air dummy-op’ing on to a CD. The operations manager will review the CD, and if it seems that you know what you are doing, then you will be scheduled to take an oral examination with the Operations Manager. The op-man will quiz you on your knowledge of Bulls Radio equipment operations and station policy. Passing this test grants you a Bulls Radio T-shirt, and you become an official DJ operator of the station.
- Are there other jobs at the station I can do if I want to do more than just spin records?
- Bulls Radio always needs more people to help out with automation, production, sports, business, news, publicity, programming, and engineering. If you are interested in any of these fields, talk to the Programing Director after attending a training session.
