This week’s DJ is Spencer Horn AKA DJ Spence, the host of WCNU Radio’s “The Weekend Rollout.” Spencer began his career as a DJ in senior year of high school, where he would play his music so loudly that the entire bus could hear it. His fellow bus riding students dubbed him DJ Spence and he decided to keep the name for his show on WCNU Radio. He saw WCNU Radio at club fair and decided to join and have his own show.
Spencer’s show, “The Weekend Rollout” is his way of hyping up his listeners for the weekend with electronic dance music (EDM). His show is inspired by DJ Dirty Elbows, who was a frequent guest on Hot 99.5’s “The Kane Show.” While Spencer mainly plays EDM, he wants to play what his audience wants to hear, and is therefore very request friendly. Spencer hopes and aspires to gain a large enough audience where he can split into having two shows, one to focus on EDM and the other to play listener requests.
Along with WCNU Radio, Spencer is a member of Spectrum and is looking to join the Sign Language club. Spencer has already expressed interest in joining the WCNU Radio Eboard team but his main goal is community engagement. Spencer is working to involve himself in WCNU Radio’s community as well as the CNU community as a whole. To this end Spencer encourages anyone to come up and talk with him, as he wants to know the people who listen to his show and WCNU. Spencer is also an Eagle Scout and loves to hike and game in his free time. Spencer is a Freshmen in the President’s Leadership Program who is currently looking to major in Computer Science and minor in Leadership.
