Rise with zachary clouse (11 am-1 pm)

My tastes in music cover all genres, but for the purposes of radio, I prefer to play earlier morning shows with a propensity toward electric guitar and drum driven music. I am graduating in May 2017 and look forward to my last year as a radio DJ at Shippensburg University's WSYC. RISE is a WSYC rebirth from its 2-year-old version called Rise in the Morning routinely played on weekdays at 8am-10am. This year RISE (Rockin' in Ship Everyday) is a more intense version of its predecessor. By dropping the pop and indie genres from our regular programming, we can make more time for heavier music for those people who are looking to relieve stress. On Wednesday 11am-1pm, RISE will be playing bands like: Shinedown, Metallica, Disturbed, Iron Madien, and other various heavier styles. RISE encourages listeners to call 717-477-1489 to suggest music or talk about their day. Keep your radio/internet device locked to 88.7FM Wednesday mornings and rock out with me.
