This Week's Show and Updates
Hello there everyone!

As you hopefully already know, this week's show is the last show of the year! The studio is closed to us during the summer, and so I will be gone until September! Tune in this week at 6:00 to listen to the final show!

I will be featuring on my show a song by a local band, the Smilin' Scandinavians. The singer of this group, Dannielle Hanson, is a student at PLU and took voice lessons last year with my voice teacher. They're great, and very unique. Head on over to their Myspace music page to give them a listen!

I also have a surprise in store for you on the show, so you really do not want to miss this week's show!

I would like to briefly update you on my job search: Alex and I did not, unfortunately, get the Promotions Director position with KCCR for next year. I am sure that whoever the GMs chose will do a great job. They have to be good, in order to beat out Alex and me as a joint package!

I have, however, landed a summer job at PLU, working in the Development office. This is very exciting, because finding a summer job at PLU is very tough this year! So I'm not too down in the dumps about not getting the KCCR job. And I assure you, my lovely listeners, that I will continue to dedicate the same time and energy to my show next year.

See you this Thursday, and I'll be back on the air in September. Until then, stay up to date here, on Facebook, and on Twitter!

Let's Finish The Alphabet With: The Remainder Of The ABC's!
I admit it, as the year wraps up I am beginning to get lazy with my show themes. It occurred to  me last week that when I did my Condensced ABC's show, I only did half of the alphabet! So I figured, I could fit the rest of the alphabet in to this week's show. So, here are the missing letters from the last show!

ABC - Jackson 5
All I Want Is You - Barry Louis Polisar
Cheated Hearts - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Dashboard - Modest Mouse
Falling Down - Atreyu
A Million Ways - OK Go
Neon Bible - Arcade Fire
P.S. I Love You - The Beatles
Queen Anne's Revenge - Flogging Molly
Tail End Charlie - Glenn Miller Orchestra
Uncle Jonny - The Killers
Walk Idiot Walk - The Hives
XO - Fall Out Boy
You're Timeless To Me - From the Hairspray movie soundtrack
Zero To Hero - From Disney's Hercules

This is my second to last show for this season, folks! I will be gone all summer until September! If you would like to know when Dead Air with Sarah Wise will return (as opposed to a summer of regular, boring dead air), stay tuned right here or join my Facebook Group! You may also opt in to receive email alerts, by commenting in this post (you may make a comment private if you do not want anyone but me seeing your email address), or you may email me at!

Thank you for listening all season long! See you next week for a Final Week of Finals!

Job Searching Within Student Media
This evening, I had my joint interview with Alex for the Promotions Director at KCCR next year. Alex and I are applying together for next year, as we will be studying away for different semsters next year.

Hilary and Emily, our fearless GMs, are also splitting their position. Emily will be studying away in the fall (like Alex), and Hilary and I will be in London in the spring. So the two of them interviewed Alex and me. Alex and I suggested that we have our interview over dinner, offering the GMs a chance to eat in the middle of their long, exhaustive interview period!

The interview was fun and laid-back, and I think that it went really well. Alex and I work well together, and we balance each other out. We are also very enthusiastic and full of several great ideas, and we offer different abilities, so we can help and teach each other. Hopefully we get the position!

I also have an interview tomorrow with The Mast for an editor position for next year. I have never worked for a newspaper before, but I have always been interested in it. This would be a fun new experience! So we will see how that goes.

One more student media job opportunity is coming up, and that is KCNS. I am interviewing with the GM of KCNS, Andrea, on Tuesday. We will discuss my show plans and ideas for next year. This one I know I will probably get. Andrea has been telling me for months how much she would like to get me on my own show at KCNS! This is rather exciting, and lots of good news!

I'm So Tired, All I Can Think About Anymore Is: Sleep
The school year is coming to an end here at PLU, and that means that suddenly everything is due. I'm starting to feel worn out and overrun! And so this week, when I had yet to prepare my show as Thursday evening rolled around, all I could think about was sleeping. Thus, a show theme was born!

This week folks, I bring you an entire show of sleep and night!

Who Needs Sleep? - Barenaked Ladies
The Lion Sleeps Tonight - From Disney's The Lion King
I'm Only Sleeping - The Beatles
Emenius Sleepus - Green Day
Sleeping In - The Postal Service
A Hard Day's Night - The Beatles
Sleeping Lessons - The Shins
I'm So Tired - The Beatles
Tired Of You - Foo Fighters
Midnight Show - The Killers
The District Sleeps Alone Tonight - The Postal Service
I Won't Spend Another Night Alone - The Ataris
Eat, Sleep, Repeat - Copeland
Night And Day - Billie Holiday
Daydream - The Lovin' Spoonful

That's all for this week, see you next week, with only two shows to go this year!

Same as the First Show, Only Different: Boys
Tonight's show, I came in to the studio to discover that the mixer was not in the studio! This mixer is what I plug my laptop in to, so that I may play my show. So I scrambled to put my show together using the itunes music library on the studio computer, and finding songs on the internet as well.

I couldn't get my planned playlist, but I got most of it. And so, I was able to succesfully bring you a theme of boys, men, and everything male-related.

I Want to be the Boy to Warm Your Mother's Heart - The White Stripes
The London Boys - David Bowie
Boys Better - The Dandy Warhols
My Moon My Man - Feist
Here Comes Your Man - Pixies
Boys of Summer - The Ataris
Boys? - Franz Ferdinand
Spaceman - The Killers
My Boyfriend's Back - Jersey Boys Cast
New World Man - Rush
Smile Like You Mean It - The Killers
Walk Like a Man - Jersey Boys Cast
Working Man - Rush
Somebody Told Me - The Killers

Off to A Shakey Start, But It's Eventually: Condensed ABCs
Today's show was a tad interesting. I brought in a guest, Katie Blatman, to help me run my show this week and to promote a book that we are doing lots of work on promoting at the moment. Due to some technical difficulties tonight, the show consisted of some true dead air. It did not take me long, however, to get the show up and running!

The theme this week was supposed to be the ABCs - songs in alphabetical order. However, I could not fit 26 songs in to an hour-long time slot, so I played the condensed ABCs. The technical difficulties that I was up against also did not help, so my A, C, and D songs never got played on air, and two filler songs were played instead. We got things fixed by letter E, so the show was a condensed alphabet, from E to Z.

The show was a good one, however, so no worries there!

Got To Get You Into My Life - The Beatles
Mr. Brightside - The Killers
Eleanor Put Your Boots On - Franz Ferdinand
Glamourous Indie Rock And Roll - The Killers
Hung Up - Madonna
I Walk The Line - Leonard Nimoy
A Jackknife To A Swan - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Knights of Cydonia - Muse
Le Disko - Shiny Toy Guns
Ooh La - The Kooks
Requiem For a Dying Song - Flogging Molly
Sophisticated Side Ponytail - Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
Vince The Loveable Stoner - The Fratellis

Shameless Promoting and Tomorrow's Show
Hello again!

I apologize for not doing my show yesterday, I was in Seattle filming a book club for a local author. I am in a class helping to promote a book that will be released this summer called The Motion of the Ocean: 1 Small Boat, 2 Average Lovers, and a Woman's Search for the Meaning of Wife by Janna Cawrse Esarey.

My group is making a book trailer for this book, a web news letter, a flyer, and a blog! And I have gotten the blog off to it's tiny little start, so you should mosey on over to The Motion of the Ocean: Charting the Course for a Successful Book Launch!

In other exciting news, I have an interview next week with KJR FM, a classic rock station in Seattle, for a summer internship.

And last but not least, as for tomorrow's radio show, I have my second guest coming in, so be sure to tune in!

No Show This Week, But Other Exciting News
Hello all you listeners out there!

This week, I will not be doing my show, due to a class commitment I have at the same time. DJ Salvador (AKA Emily) will be coming in to play a recording of my March 26th show, Rarities. However, if you have missed any of the last three shows, you may now listen to them online! Here is a quick link to where you may listen to my recorded shows: Listen Now!

You may also download my recorded shows to your own computer. Links are provided in the individual show archives (which you may access here), or you may go here to download any of my recorded shows. These are organized by show date and title. There is a limit to downloading songs. If you are unable to download because the server is too busy, try again later or on a different day.

In other news: I mentioned in my last update that I have applied for promotions director for next year at KCCR. Rumor has it, nobody else has applied! The current promotions director will be studying away for the fall semester next year, and I will be studying away for the spring semester, so I have suggested that we run as a joint team to fill the position for next school year. Things are looking in our favor!

Lastly: To any PLU voice students, I would like to do a feature on you! I am looking for recordings on tape, CD, or MP3 of one song performed by PLU voice students. If you are interested in being a part of this show, please email me at

Listen to Your Favorite Shows

Finally, listeners, I am able to provide you with recordings of my past shows! Here, for your listening pleasure, is every single show I have recorded to date (some early shows were not recorded). Enjoy!

Please note: Some recordings begin in the middle of songs. I apologize for this! However, the entire show is there.
