Help amp up their station

DJs from the Northland College radio station WRNC-LPFM 97.7 will spin albums at StageNorth in Washburn as part of a fundraiser for the station that airs in the Chequamegon Bay area.

DjTj (Trent Hanson) and DJ Dutch (Kamron von Donkersgoed) will be at StageNorth at 8 p.m. Thursday. There is a $5 cover charge, with proceeds going to support station operations and improve broadcast coverage.

The radio station serves a 3-mile radius around Northland College, but has gotten FCC approval to build a full power station, which would extend its reach to include Washburn, Bayfield, Madeline Island and more. The station airs a mix of talk, news and music all day and is run by 15-20 volunteers.
