However, the number one thing that was certain when I applied to the Hall was that I wanted to join WSOU. Starting in Freshman year of high school, I started to switch from classic rock to punk and metal.  Since then, I’ve gone to shows anywhere from down the street at a local church, to two and a half hours away in Reading, PA, and have seen the greats like Metallica, Slayer, Green Day and more. The radio station has only helped increase my interest and experiences with music and the artists of our genres.

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.

ElliotDJ DJ Name: ESP - Assistant Station Manager

Favorite WSOU Experience: Traveling to see The Maury Show and receiving an internship through NBCUniversal shortly afterwards.
About Me: Born in the middle of a field in Pennsylvania, I grew up with only two sources of entertainment: herding cattle and listening to the radio. After receiving an absurd amount of money from Seton Hall, I moved to South Orange to pursue Music-Sound Production and Engineering. Now a junior with little-to-no idea where life may lead me, I reign over WSOU as Assistant Station Manager. When I am not slaving away over the DJ board, I spend what little time I have overseeing on-campus housing as a Resident Assistant. I enjoy submerging myself in excellent film, eating the finest of foods (under $10), and performing on stage whether that be acting, singing, or stand-up comedy.
