About WDCE

Student-run and operated since 1960, WDCE has been the voice of independent radio in Richmond. WDCE is affiliated with and located at University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia.

Students have used it as a launching pad to careers in radio or other mass communications as well as a fun extra-curricular activity. Non-students have also played an important role in broadcasting continuity and diversity.

Over the years, WDCE has brought many concerts to the campus including DC punk legends Fugazi, indie favorites Death Cab For Cutie, and hip-hop veteran Masta Ace. If you are interested in performing on air or on the UofR campus, please email us at wdce.volunteer@gmail.com.

WDCE was located in the Tyler Haynes Commons since its first broadcast, but was recently relocated and renovated to the North Court basement.

Alumni and former DJ's are encouraged to drop us a line on Facebook to reminisce about the good times they had at WDCE, so interested students and new DJ's can hear how great it can be to be involved with college radio!

      We play all genres of music by both signed and unsigned artists. All you have to do is send your CD or LP, along with any informational/promotional materials, to:

      Once we receive your music our Music Staff will give it a listen, and if we like it, we will add it to rotation. Please keep in mind that it can take several weeks for a release to be auditioned. After allowing some time, if you would like to follow up on the status of your release, you may call our Music Directors at 804-289-8698 or email wdce(at)richmond(dot)edu. Remember, not everything will be added to rotation.
