Disc Jockey: DJ GottaKetchumAll is Western Oregon University student Barbara Ketchum. Being a Communication Studies major, radio broadcasting is right up her alley. Other hobbies and interests include traveling, baking, film photography, over-analyzing old sitcoms, and trying to find time to play her ukulele and mandolin.
She has an eclectic taste in music and is always game for hearing something new. Barbara's shows are very listener interactive because she believes radio should be fun for everyone. She is a host of two shows, 8-Bit Tidbit and Themed Thursday.
8-Bit Tidbit is a playlist of basically whatever music she is feeling that week. The show is mostly compiled of music from indie/alternative (anything from folk to electronic) and local musicians; but sometimes other random goodies are thrown in to the mix! Are you a musician interested in some radio play or an interview? Then this is the girl to contact! Are you a music lover in search of something new? Then tune in!
For a wider range of music there is Themed Thursdays. Every week a different theme is chosen for the show. Anything, really, ANYTHING could turn up on the playlist. Themes are announced days in advance, so listeners are encouraged to make requests and share their thoughts (which is likely to get them a shout on air!). Some past Themed Thursday favorites include Oscar-Winning Songs, Covers, and Candy.
Barbara also covers WOU Student Activities with fellow DJ Chris Laswell.
