Listeners from central Maine and the world (through iTunes and the Web) can tune into the DJs on Colby's WMHB radio. Tucked away in a corner of the basement of Roberts, the small studio boasts tunes, dials, microphones, and one well-worn stool. The walls are lined with alphabetized CDs of every genre of music imaginable, including a large sized collection of new releases from both recognizable and little known artists. The DJs are as varied as the programming, and include students, faculty, staff, and community members. Their programs range from sports broadcasts and talk, to a variety of music shows featuring all genres. Things happen behinds the scenes as well; student administrators organize advertising, juggle the programming schedule, as well as other tasks that come with running a radio station. Recently there has been a great deal of updating to the station with new equipment that allows DJs to play music from a digital library rather than manually playing CDs. A lot happens in the basement of Roberts from a little room that broadcasts across the world.
