Meet the DJs

Alicia Campos DJ Name: Freak on Alicia 
Home State: New Jersey
Favorite Five bands: The Wonder Years, City & Colour, A Day To Remember, This Wild Life, Seaway
Hobbies: Guitar, Tumblr, writing senseless thoughts in a journal, and dancing like a crazy person whenever music is on.
Favorite WSOU Experience: Interviewing Matty Mullins and Fallujah at New England Metal Fest during my first year here, and hanging out with fellow staff members on the train into the city for present shows!
About Me: I came to Seton Hall to study computer science and I didn't know about the station. I then find out there was a place where my music- obsessed little heart could soar, and I completely fell in love with WSOU. It has already given me a lot of experiences and many great new friends. It has also molded my music tastes from switching my playlists from only Mumford & Sons and The Wonder Years to include Between the Buried and Me, as well as Beartooth. I have found my cozy little corner at the station and they even let me emo out as a co-host on Under the Stars on Tuesdays from 10 - 12 PM!!
Jillian Fitzpatrick

DJ Name: Fitzy - Technical Operations Director
Home State: New Jersey
Favorite Five Bands: Nine Inch Nails, Dawes, The National, Mumford & Sons, and Elvis Costello & The Attractions. 
Hobbies: Reading, writing, playing guitar and going to shows!
Favorite WSOU Experience: Going to a presents show with Beartooth and getting to meet Caleb Shomo and film his interview with DJ Jessie.
About Me: I love a lot of different music. Currently I've been listening to a lot of Indie and Alternative, but I've also recently fallen in love with Nine Inch Nails and bands like Ministry and the Dillinger Escape Plan. I study English, Writing, and Politcal Science, so the station allows me to really get into broadcasting and journalism in a way I don't get the chance to in class. I often say my other music interests lie in "old man music," which makes it perfectly fitting that I host "For The Record," our 70's specialty show, that you can listen to every Monday night from 10PM-12AM!

Doug DJ Name: The Hurricane
Home State: New Jersey
Favorite Five Bands: Gojira, Tengger Cavalry, Brand New, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers
Hobbies: Writing, listening to music, running, hiking, video games, and juggling devil sticks.
Favorite WSOU Experience: Right after joining WSOU, I was shocked by how friendly, down to earth, and utterly unique every person at the station was. Meeting all these people was amazing, but my favorite memory has to be when I nervously took the chair for my first overnight DJ shift and ended up walking away three hours later with a ridiculous sense of pride and enjoyment.
About Me: I’m a rotating low-pressure tropical cyclone who’s got surface wind speeds exceeding 74 miles per hour and a half-finished degree in TV Broadcasting. I initially came to Seton Hall for its excellent TV program, and ended up joining WSOU completely on a random whim. Needless to say, it was one of the best whims I’ve ever followed because WSOU has introduced me to countless amazing people and helped improve my public speaking confidence tremendously. Metal was only an occasional interest for me growing up, but after being introduced to dozens of sub-genres and hundreds of bands, I can’t stop listening and discovering fascinating new sounds.

Favorite WSOU Experience: Going to the WSOU Staff Formal that we hold every year and meeting most of my fellow staff members for the first time. If it weren't for that night, I likely would have never met some friends that are going to last a lifetime.
About Me:  When I visited Seton Hall for the first time, the thought of joining a heavy metal radio station never crossed my mind. However, when I went to WSOU for the first time, I knew that it was the place for me and was the deciding factor for me coming to Seton Hall. I am a Communication major and the Assistant Station Manager at WSOU. I first joined the staff of WSOU during the spring of 2017 and have never looked back since. I am currently the host of two specialty shows: Street Patrol (Wednesdays 8-10) which is our local metal show where we play unsigned and local bands and Campus Buzz (Sundays 8-10) which is our indie and alternative show. I also DJ and occasionally newscast. I am so glad that I joined the station because it has given me so many opportunities and friendships that I am never going to forget.
