That time UVA’s Dean of Students hosted a show…

From UVA Today:

What does Dean of Students Allen Groves listen to when he’s not busy helping University of Virginia students feel at home on Grounds?

Broadcasting Monday night (7/24/2017) on UVA’s student-run radio station, WXTJ, Groves shared his “greatest hits” playlist with fourth-year students and radio DJs Tyler Garling and Michael Crawford. Together they offered up a mix of old-school rock and soulful country tunes, ranging from David Bowie and The Eagles to Glen Campbell and the Zac Brown Band, which Groves loves to play while driving around Charlottesville in his 20-year-old convertible.

It was Groves’ first time on the station, which, along with UVA student- and community-run station WTJU, often brings in guests from UVA and the Charlottesville community to join 200-plus student and community DJs. WTJU, a noncommercial station, plays more than 1,100 songs per week. That’s roughly 1,000 more than most commercial Top 40 stations play weekly, and includes everything from classical music to classic rock.
