Radio GSC broadcasts over the internet via Live365, giving us the ability to reach millions of listeners worldwide. We broadcast three shows, each with a different format: Country/Rock, Pop/Top 40, and R&B/Rap. You can listen to the radio station by clicking the "Listen Now" button to launch a player or you can download a desktop app to listen to Live365 stations. More shows, including live broadcasts, will be added as the station matures.

Mobile Apps

Folks on the go can search for "Live365" in your iPhone App Store or Android Market to get a free player for your mobile device. Apps are available for older devices, too, such as the Blackberry and Windows Mobile 5/6 (NOT Windows Phone 7 handsets). Mobile device users should have an unlimited data plan, because this will stream a lot of data, and you don't want any unwelcome surprises when your mobile bill comes due.

Once you have your app installed, search for "Pioneer Radio" and enjoy the music, news, and weather being broadcast from right here at Glenville State College!

History

Radio station personnel in the 70s

Glenville State College had a radio station from the late 1960s until 1982-83. The broadcast room was in the Pioneer Center, now renovated and called the Mollohan Campus Community Center. Buddy Griffin, founder and former director of the Bluegrass Music Program at the college, remembers time spent as a student running wire from the Pioneer Center to Pickens Hall. The metal water pipes and girders in Pickens Hall were used to transmit the radio signal via a carrier wave. The signal reached most of campus and a few nearby houses with only five small one-watt transmitters. An administrative decision was made to close the radio station due to a lack of serious student participation.

Interest in having a radio station resurfaced in the early 1990s but due to lack of funding the station was not revived. English teacher and theater director Dennis Wemm recalls visiting the old broadcast booth in 1993. "Everything was still there, just as if they'd left for the day. The turntable still had a Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers record on it." Only the microphones were missing, having been appropriated for other use on campus.
