KOUG Radio open house aims to attract new listeners and DJs

Before Labor Day weekend kicked off, KOUG Radio turned the library building into a celebration of their station. The entryway of the building was decked out in streamers featuring KOUG’s signature color scheme of red, green and yellow, leading the way to room 201 were the event was held.

From 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Raymond West, KOUG Radio station manager, greeted guests at the door and entered each arrival into a raffle for chances to win KOUG Radio swag.

Inside the open house, guests enjoyed a complimentary pizza/snack bar while listening to KOUG Radio, which was on air the duration of the event. In attendance were students who were either interested in becoming a KOUG Radio DJ or students who are involved in other student media organizations on campus, such as the VanCougar and the Salmon Creek Journal.

Guests enjoyed each other’s company by socializing and playing with the event’s decorations, which included inflatable boom boxes, microphones and guitars. Guests also wore guitar shaped sunglasses as well as miniature cowboy hats that were placed on the tables for them to enjoy.

Upon the conclusion of the event, West thanked everyone in attendance and cut into a KOUG Radio themed cake that was specially made for the event.
