The Rock Carnival

This past weekend, Oak Ridge Park hosted The Food Truck and Rock Carnival. This large-scale event is a festival for all-ages dedicate to craft beer, artisan foods and rock n’ roll. Around 15,000 patrons filled the venue Sunday. This event welcomed acts such as Slash, Black Label Society and many more!

WMSC Alumni and DJ of “The Metal Teddy Bear Experience” Chris Annunziata had the opportunity to attend The Rock Carnival where he had access to be on stage, backstage, at the artist compound, and on the pit!

Chris interviewed Clint Lowery, lead guitarist and backing vocalist on the band’s bus right after their set.

Clint Lowery writes a lot of the material for Sevendust. The band was on the bus and we hung out a bit with singer Lajon Whiterspoon.

WMSC Alumni Takeover

take over

The WMSC “Alumni Takeover” started in 2009 on the “Friends of WMSC” Facebook page: “Wouldn’t it be great to get back on the air again on WMSC for a couple of hours?” Former WMSC GM Anthony Mennutti and former WMSC alum, Tom Kaminski from WCBS 880 reached out to other WMSC alumni, and the week-long “Takeover” was born! For the past 7 years it has brought alumni from all around the country back to Montclair State University. WMSC is happy to welcome everyone back to the airwaves this week and is looking forward to an awesome week! Join us on social media with #AlumniTakeover for updates, facts, and pictures!
