Meet the Executive Board: Jason Drapinski (’18)
Hey everyone! My name is Jason (he/him/his) and I’m the Music Director here at WWPV. I’m in my final year at Saint Mike’s and I’m majoring in International Relations and minoring in Spanish and Environmental Studies. I’m originally from Malden, MA which is a super culturally diverse suburb just outside Boston.
As Music Director, I manage the “sound” of WWPV. Even though we allow DJs to play almost any genre of music during their shows, my job is to curate our collection of CDs and tracks that are available to our DJs for airtime. I spent a lot of the first semester this year updating our collection by branching out to different record labels to see if they’d be interested in getting airtime at WWPV. I would love to see this continue under the reigns of a new Music Director next year. This year has been a great year for WWPV, we’ve been much more active in the Burlington community and I’m excited to see what the new executive does with this new momentum.
