Lauren Shauer: I’m Lauren, a 4th year majoring in criticism (it’s a very prestigious program). My eyes are two different colors (as a kind, random stranger once called, “dog eyes”). I’m from North Carolina, which I’m strangely proud of. It’s probably because the Cookout milkshake was created there. I also have a phobia of men wearing sweatpants. Hit me up if you ever want to talk about solving racial/socioeconomic inequality….

Peter Stebbins, the amalgam of Catherine and Steve, has been described as “about equal to the sum of his parts.” A 4th year sociology major, he strongly believes in the power of music as simultaneously therapy, an aphrodisiac, a motivator, and laxative. As co-host with Lauren Schauer of the new program, “Stebbins to the Schauer,” he aims to provide listeners with an eclectic mix of melodies to fit the rhythms of their lives.
Hobbies include, but are not limited to, thinking of puns, locating baked goods, and running off said baked goods.

    Boris Papandopulo was one of most prolific composers in Croatia, with over 440 works in his catalog. And thanks to a new release from CPO, his music might gain the wider audience they deserve. Papandopulo (1906-1999) eschewed the atonal revolution of the 20th century, and instead developed his own form of tonal composition. To my […]

  • WTJX DJs of the Week: Jim Clarke and Andrew Kovalenko (Jim and Andrew in the Morning)

    Jim and Andrew’s Saturday morning radio show has become impressively popular. Why is this? Perhaps it is because they read Jaden Smith tweets on air. Perhaps it is because they play pirate songs (no joke). Perhaps it is because they spread the false hope that they will play your requests. Perhaps it is because their […]
