The Buzz to host DJ lock in
ST. BONAVENTURE, NEW YORK (March 4) – The Buzz will be hosting a 24-hour radio lock-in March 19 open to all St. Bonaventure University students and faculty. Half of the proceeds will go to The Harry Potter Alliance, a non-profit organization that campaigns for literacy, ecnomic justice, gay rights, labor rights and more.
The lock-in will take place from noon on March 19 to noon on March 20. The cost is five dollars per DJ and DJs can have multiple time slots. Sign ups for time slots will be posted in the station a week before the event and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Harry Potter Alliance was founded in 2005 by comedian Andrew Slack and the band Harry and the Potters which collected donations for Amnesty International at its shows. The Alliance uses the renown of the franchise to raise awareness for causes such as immigration, marriage equality and net neutrality.
The other half of the proceeds raised from the lock in will go towards improvements to the station.
One current improvement by The Buzz is the purchase of a new computer. The computer has been bought and is expected to arrive later this month.
Make sure to sign up for the DJ lock-in after Spring Break to take part in this fun event and support a great cause.
