F.A.Q.

If your question isn’t contained below, feel free to contact us directly at wamh@amherst.edu.

No. Although a student program runs for two hours by default, we take requests for one-hour shows on a case-by-case basis.

WAMH holds several scheduled training sessions at the beginning of each semester, but we can also arrange appointments. At your training session, you will learn how to operate the broadcasting equipment as well as what protocol to follow when on-air. Afterward, you’ll fill out a short questionnaire to ensure you’re ready to go on air.

As a general rule of thumb, you are free to determine the music played on your show, provided that is is free of profane content. WAMH states a commitment to playing new music, defined as music released in the past three months. We therefore suggest that your show contain 25% new music. For more specific inquiries, contact the programming director.

Yes, you are free to participate in whichever aspects of WAMH you find most interesting; however, we recommend that you try hosting a show. The time commitment is consistent, and it’s a good way to become more connected to the WAMH family!
