IBS Convention special edition

We had a great time at the "Audience With...Wayne Robins" at the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System's convention March 8 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan. My friend Norm Prusslin, IBS president and convention chair, hosted the one-hour informal conversation. Among those who attended were people from Goucher Student Radio at Goucher College in Towson, Md., WTHS/Hope College in Holland, Mich., WCPR/Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J., and WUSB/State University of New York at Stony Brook. Before and after the presentation, we were also delighted to meet some radio personalities we've long admired and enjoyed, such as Claudia Marshall of WFUV, "Broadway" Bill Lee of WCBS-FM and Jerry Schaefer, who hosts the "Graveyard Blues" show Sundays from 8 p.m.-10 p.m., beaming and streaming on Long Island's 103.9 WRCN. We also met one of the guys from the band Holler, Wild Rose, who came up at the end of the session to give me a copy of their album, "Our Little Hymnal," a record I've had and enjoyed for a number of weeks.—Wayne Robins
