UNC Radio would like to acknowledge the following individuals for their ongoing support of the station. Without you guys UNC Radio would not be the thriving and inspiring force that is today. We salute you! Thank you for having so much faith in us.
What to say about the dear doctor... If he can't give you an answer to a physics question, he can give you great direction. He's one of the teachers here at UNC (physics department, of course) to teach a few hundred different students a semester, battling the way through funky rules of this extremely low budget school, and enjoying what he can in this life.
When it comes to the radio station, this man is becoming its savior; he provides us equipment for events when our low budget keeps slapping us, but beyond that, if you could fathom the kindness of this man you would start to dance now, now, and... now. Dr. Semak, there a very few words in the English language that can actually amount to the merit you possess.
Andy Loomis (left) and Ted Leber (right) are both marvelous technicians, which is preceded by their wit. They have given only the advice a growing radio station could ask for. Beyond us however, these men take care of all the underground wires and lights that help us take the world for granted, so it becomes our duty to realize these two men. Ultimately, they know all things... and non-things.
Andy Loomis has retired from his tech career here at UNC.

Cherise and Donna Steffins at the UNC card office are some of the brightest people on the planet. Always tackling the plastic swipe magnet sticks, they manage to deal with the monies of student organizations such as the UNC Student Radio. They have been nothing but supportive during times of calmness as well as crisis. If you catch these wonderful ends of the UNC staff you will not be in a wasted moment.
The Marcus Garvey Cultural Center has provided the radio station with space in the basement of the Davis House. We continually wish to show our support for all the cultural centers on campus, but the Marcus Garvey Center will never be unappreciated in regards to the station.Chatrooms
