What's Happening at Cedar Crest College
President Ambar a Guest DJ on CCC Radio this Friday, Dec. 10
Cedar Crest College President Carmen Twillie Ambar will serve as guest DJ on CCC Radio this Friday, Dec. 10, from 3-4 p.m. Tune in online at www.cedarcrest.edu/cccradio or on Channel 17 on campus television to listen as President Ambar spins some of her favorite records and chats about the College and its future direction.
President Ambar said she heard about the opportunity through an e-mail the campus radio station sent out to the college community. She said she has no experience as a DJ, but thinks it will be fun.
“I am excited about it. I thought it would be a unique way to connect with students,” said President Ambar. “My plan is to play songs that are representative of the broad principles of our strategic plan, and that span the last several decades starting with the 70s.”
President Ambar is compiling a playlist of 12-15 songs from many genres, including rock, R&B, and classical, to name a few. How many she plays will depend, in part, on how much she winds up talking during the show. She said she has gotten plenty of tips from CCC Radio student DJs, and she is appreciative of the help.
The radio station, in return, is happy to welcome the president to the airwaves.
“It definitely is cool. This is the first time we’ve had a president on the radio since I’ve been here,” said senior Shannon Duncan, who spins records for CCC Radio as “DJ Ducati.” “It’s awesome. We’re really excited about this.”
