Apply to be a WXTJ Volunteer!

WXTJ 100.1 FM is UVA’s freeform student radio.

DJ your own radio show.

Organize live music events.

Connect with UVA’s music and arts community.

We broadcast live to 100.1 FM Charlottesville! You can also stream all of our radio shows online at wxtj.fm.

In the past few years, our DJs either had the opportunity to either broadcast their shows live from the studio in Charlottesville or remotely stream from home. After a year of mostly remote programming due to COVID-19, WXTJ is now operating with nearly 200 student volunteers who have made the studio their home at UVA. We reached the highest number of streams at once during the 2021-2022 year and hope to onboard even more incoming student DJs who are dedicated and passionate about college radio. There are a ton of other ways to be involved too, so please don’t hesitate to reach out. WXTJ is dedicated to maintaining a safe and inclusive creative community.

 

DJ Applications for the 2022 – 2023 school year are now CLOSED. WXTJ opens these to new members at the beginning of each fall semester. We hope you come back and apply then!

Just wanna stay in-the-loop? Subscribe to our email newsletter and receive regular updates about WXTJ.

Interested in being on the air for the greater Charlottesville area? Our sister station, WTJU 91.1 FM, is actively looking for genre-driven student DJs to host shows in their Rock, Folk, and Jazz departments. Please contact wtju@virginia.edu or Peter Jones at pj2x@virginia.edu if this sounds like the opportunity for you!

  • WXTJ Writes! by Grace Guinan: “An Obsessive Search for Song Lyrics Referencing Other Songs”

    There are many ways to categorize music (verified by Reddit’s r/weirdspotifyplaylists) and recently I have become obsessed with a specific categorization: songs that reference other songs.  Music is always referencing other music, with samples being obvious examples.  But, more abstractly, all artists create music that is influenced by their predecessors.  Sometimes the lines can blur, […]

  • WXTJ Writes! by Libby Eveland: “A Review of Roman Candle by Elliot Smith”

    It’s hard to critique an Elliott Smith album. What does one even say? Any critique would be a knock against Smith’s artistry. Each album Smith has made has been a testament to the events circling his life, and his debut album, Roman Candle, is no different. With limited access to instruments and recording equipment, Smith […]

  • WXTJ Writes! by David Christle: “A Shot in the Dark: Exploring the CDs of WXTJ”

    In a world where Spotify algorithms and corporate-owned stations shape our music tastes, college radio remains an outpost for the underground. Around the country, the freedoms of university and listener funding combine with the unconventional, and perhaps only slightly pretentious, tastes of music-obsessed college students to create a space where even the most obscure artist […]
