This has all gotten out of hands on both ends.
Derek, Tony, Brock, Michael, Jamie and whoever else posts on this that has experience working at WUTK knows, for a fact, that the efforts of BOTH Benny Smith and the group of student volunteers have made the station the better. Benny is an invaluable asset to the station and everyone who has worked down there knows that. They also know he doesn't do it alone. Let's please leave it at that.
No offense to Michael, Metro Pulse/Mike Gibson could have contacted the current music director, Emelie Matthews (who was available and down at the station) but he didn't. Emelie I'm sure doesn't mind being not being mentioned, on the same hand she deserves mention for her efforts. It's in the past and this bickering sounds completely immature.
If anyone thinks I don't know what I'm talking about or wishes to dispute anything I have said, please email me but leave this article alone. These negative comments are detracting from the purpose of the article, which is to highlight the funding issues of the station.
Also, I know I've done a good job and have had the admiration from Benny and received a national nomination as "2007 Music Director of the Year." All the recognition I need has already been given to me though that and other accolades earned through my passion for WUTK. I am a highly decorated seven-year veteran of the military and have "worked in the real world." I cherish my time at WUTK as much as my time in the military and know Benny's knowledge and training was invaluable to my progression.
Benny is great, the students down there are great. Case closed! Love you all.
