Brustficken wins Virtual ROCK BAND Contest!

After four weeks of intense competition, the WYOU Virtual Rock Band Contest has come to a close with one band emerging atop the rest. The final night saw bands Brustficken, Rutger Hauer and the $2500 Phones, and The Burning Puppies return to the studio to duke it out live on channel 4. After all the smoked had cleared, Brustficken walked away the winner and the proud new owner of the grand prize, a Rock Band Smoke & Light machine.

WYOU would like to thank board member Craig Meyer for working long and hard on this program.

Joe Deane's Automator Donation Running Smoothly

Back at the beginning of the year, Joe Deane, graciously donated the money needed to purchase a new playback automation system for the station.

Joe is owner of University Audio as well as the producer of the show Peregrine Left Films which airs on channel 4, Fridays at 4:00pm and Saturdays at 6:00am.

We had been struggling a bit with our overnight automator set-up and were in need of a real upgrade that would bring us into the 21st century of television. With Joe Deane's generous donation, we are now fully operational.
