This week’s DJ is Jack Filiault, who is currently Promotions Manager along with Tom Aberman and a lover of comedy. Jack has been a member of WCNU for less than a year and he began his first show in his second semester of Freshman year. He had discovered WCNU because he was invited to see the station by WCNU’s current Vice President, Connor Channer, and fell in love with the atmosphere of the station. Soon after he began his first show, Jack applied to WCNU’s eboard and was accepted for the Fall semester of 2016.
Jack joined WCNU and began his first show with his friend, and fellow eboard member, Nikhil Sharma. Their show changed names this semester to “The Oddity Hour” from it’s original name “Weird Niche Stuff.” “The Oddity Hour” airs on Wednesdays from 6-7pm. Nikhil AKA Nik selects the music, typically idie rock and folk, and the two of them discuss the music and joke around.
After their mutual friend Nick Barker joined them for an episode, Jack and Barker decided to create their own show. They named their show “Slap On CNU!” and it is in the format of a morning show: they play music, tell personal stories, discuss politics/current events, and discuss outlandish and comedic news that is actually true.
Jack is currently a sophomore and will soon be declaring to be an English major. He hopes to publish novels in his free time but he currently plans on pursuing a career in media. Besides WCNU Radio, Jack is on the eboard for the Currents Literary Magazine as their Treasurer/Promotions Manager/Event’s Coordinator, a member of Writer’s Syndicate, and likes to write, play games, and hang out with friends.
