Chris DeCarlo and Glen Maganzini Present...

The first real Wakefield Étudiant radio show. The first show lasted 55 minutes long and that is about how long most of the following shows will be. This show was totally improvised and there was no editing other than improving the sound quality. The sound quality still isn't quite where we want it to be. You will notice that my microphone is significantly louder than Chris's. We used three microphones: ours were hooked up to a karaoke machine and the other one was located right next to the speaker, which is a considerable distance away from the other microphones. For now show we will try to eliminate any technical difficulties that this one had.


Here is the set of songs that we played:

Introduction: Folk Implosion - Daddy Never Understood

First Set:
1) Fear - I Love Livin' In The City
2) Animal Collective - Peacebone
3) Daniel Johnston - I Save Cigarette Butts

Second Set:
1) Beat Happening - Black Candy
2) Fugazi - Repeater
3) Peter, Bjorn and John - Amsterdam

Third Set:
1) Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime
2) N.W.A - Fuck the Police
3) The Smiths - Shoplifters of the World Unite

Closer: Pixies - Here Comes Your Man

Next Show: Show #2 will be recorded sometime next weekend (Friday or Saturday night). I will try my best to always upload the show to the Étudiant the following day.

Enjoy the show and give us some feedback!


  1. transitions from songs to speakers are off..volume fluctuates alot. frequency is too high when you mic the songs.

  2. Given our situation, can you offer any helpful advice?

  3. don't put the microphone too close to the speaker and turn the song up instead..if you have garage band you can just upload the songs onto there and make your playlist with added commentary.

  4. I'm using a program called Audacity. Garage band looks pretty cool, but it is pricey and is only compatible with Macs. We'll try moving the microphone away. Thanks for the suggestion
