Meet the Executive Board – Amy Garlesky (’18)

Hey y’all! My name is Amy (she/her) and I’m the station manager at WWPV. I’m a senior from Cleveland, OH and I’m graduating this May with a degree in philosophy and political science. On the side, I also work as a freelance writer for sites like Bandcamp or The Le Sigh and I also run my own record label, OK Tapes.

As station manager, I act as the head executive of the station. This means that I assemble the E-board, run meetings, communicate with the Student Association, and make sure everything in the station is running smoothly (bills are paid, DJs are scheduled, etc.)

Since I’m graduating this May, my time at WWPV is running out and as sad as I am, I’m excited for a new E-board to take the reigns! We’ve done a lot this year on-campus working with the S.A. and off, working with the local promoter, hope all is well to put on a spring series downtown.

Top five artists in 2018 that are blowing my mind:

Renata Zeiguer

Anna McClellan

U.S. Girls

Long Neck

Emily Yacina

 

Albums I’m looking forward to this year:

Beach House

Yohuna
