EOT09 State Fair 10/19/09

This week’s Eye on the Triangle decided to give listeners a sneak peek at this year’s Pack Howl Act, but as always, our EOT team gave you the regular segments you are used to as well.

Evan Garris gave listeners an update on the balloon boy hoax, the interim executive director of the Alumni Association after Lennie Barton’s firing, the H1N1 vaccine running out in Wake County and more.

Derek Medlin, John Cooper Elias and Tyler Everett analyzed the Pack’s performance against Boston College.

In this week’s VIP, in honor of the North Carolina State Fair being in town, DJ Chris Cioffi took listeners on his journey to enjoy his State Fair experience, spending as little money as possible. He quickly found out that going for free was not a viable option. This year’s State Fair included a lot of representation from N.C. State, including an appearance from the infamous Hillsborough Street Barrel Monster, ice cream from N.C. State’s Food Science Department, a look at how to milk a cow from N.C. State’s Animal Science Club and more.

As promised, Homecoming Chair Adam Compton came on as a guest to Eye on the Triangle to officially announce the Homecoming Pack Howl Act. We talked to him about Homecoming 2009 events and how they compare to previous years’ events, and then let him explain the Pack Howl act, which is NOT going to be a band this year. If you haven’t read Special K’s blog post or listened to the show, we won’t ruin the surprise for you.

Mike Alston interviewed Megan Gulledge for this week’s Community Canvas on her artwork, after reading about Gulledge in Goodnight Raleigh.  Gulledge has an opening at First Friday at the Busy Bee. Here is an excerpt of Gulledge’s bio from her Web site: Certain experiences in life change the way you see the world.  When I was in college I traveled to Ireland with eleven other art students and two professors.  We were required to keep journals to document our experiences through writing and drawing.  One of the more interesting techniques that I learned from keeping a journal is to almost remove yourself a level, step back from what you are so immersed in for the sake of capturing it in a more effective way.  A result of that trip was a new perspective on life, an obsession for moments.
Check out some of Megan’s artwork below.

Music clips in hear This and throughout Monday’s show were from local musicians that are part of the weeklong Cherry Bounce line up. To tell us more about the festival line up and it’s progression, Rachel Sloane sat down with event organizers Billy Warden and Greg Behr. You can read more about the festival on

This week’s Wolfpacker of the Week was Zach Schnell, a junior in environmental technology and member of the Wolfpack Environmental Association. He sat down with Jacob Downey to talk about sustainability on campus.

Student Media Photographer Matt Moore went around campus and talked to students about what they think of the proposed government soda tax. The tax is intended to help pay for health care reform and combat obesity.

EOT07 Football Part 2 10/5/09

After you got a brief rundown of the latest news from Eye on the Triangle, we kicked the show off with two great, short monologues. Saja Hindi sat down with two VIP N.C. State fans — one is a student who doesn’t particularly enjoy football games but sometimes attends tailgates for the social atmosphere and one is an alumnus who is such a sports devotee, he now is interning at the Wolfpack Club.

This week’s Hear This consisted of the EOT team giving listeners a look into local history within WKNC’s own library. Mike Alston gave a brief history and clip from the Backsliders, which broke up in 1999; Jacob Downey — the Boy Wonder Jinx, which broke up in 1998; and Rachel Sloane — Ladderback, which broke up in 2002.

For Community Canvas, Mike sat down with photojournalist Jason Arthurs who graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2003 with a degree in journalism to hear about his work. Arthurs now works as a freelancer and produces both print photography and video content.

Finally, this week’s Wolfpacker of the Week was Liz Walters, a senior in graphic design and representative of Campus Arts Council and Arts N.C. State.

EOT06 Football Part 1 9/28/09

There’s a lot of planning that goes into football games — an event that attracts more than 60,000 people. Athletics works in collaboration with Campus Police, Raleigh Police, Raleigh EMS among other groups to make sure games go as planned. This planning, without a doubt, includes preparations for tailgating — the gameday experience before the game. Saja Hindi interviewed VIPs Campus Police Chief Tom Younce and Capt. Jon Barnwell about some of the preparations. Restrictions to tailgating and hours have been a topic of much debate in recent history due to a shooting that occurred at a tailgate in a lot off Trinity Rd. in 2004. Alumni Tyler Dukes and Kenneth Ball talked to Saja Hindi for EOT’s VIP about how they tailgate and why it’s important to them. Both Dukes and Ball worked for Technician when the shootings happened and tailgating hours were restricted, which they talked about as well.

In Community Canvas, Mike Alston let listeners revisit an interview with Ryan Cummings, artist of the Hear Here compilation CD cover, in anticipation of Saturday night’s Hear Here finale show at the Pour House.

In Hear This, Kelly Reid gives listeners a review of Starmount’s debut album Tyranny of the Sphere, with an Oct. 27 CD release, as well as Birds of Avalon’s Uncanny Valley. She also gives listeners information about Dan Deacon’s show Oct. 1 at the Cat’s Cradle.

This week’s Wolfpacker of the Week, Katy “Red” Walls from the N.C. State Women’s Rugby team sat down with Jacob Downing to talk about her involvement with the team, obstacles she’s faced and what led her to join the team.

In Soundbytes, Caitlin Cauley interviewed students around campus about the Rally 4 Talley Campaign, a campaign to increase awareness of the University’s intent to build a new student center and new atrium on campus and encourage students to vote in favor of a fee increase in the student fee referendums Monday, to support this project.
