Final exam time at Harvard can be a stressful time for Harvard students, particularly those students who host a regular radio show on WHRB. In order to maintain quality air during this period but also give the student staff a chance to study for exams, WHRB has what is known as its Orgy season. An Orgy, a trademarked term of WHRB, is a block of programming (sometimes an expansion of WHRB's traditional programming) that takes up a large block of time- this can be anywhere from four hours to days worth of music all organized around a certain theme.
WHRB Sports is no exception to the Orgy period schedule. In the past, we've traditionally presented an extended edition of Crimson Sportstalk centered around a sporting event- last year, it was the men's and women's basketball doubleheader. When looking at the schedule, we recognized a new opportunity, a chance to broadcast five straight days of Sports. Thus, the Five Days of Sportsmas Orgy was born, as WHRB will bring you around 16 hours of Harvard Sports coverage like no one else can.
It all starts Tuesday night, December 7th at Lavietes Pavilion, when the Harvard Crimson take on Division III outfit WPI at 7pm. The rest of Sportsmas will feature men's and women's hockey and men's and women's basketball broadcasts as well. The full schedule is in the sidebar to the right as well as below the jump. We're still working on the final details but expect interviews with coaches, players and national figures both during and immediately after our broadcasts. We're looking forward to our most ambitious schedule in our tenure at WHRB Sports and we hope you are too. Thanks for listening and have a MERRY SPORTSMAS!
