DJ Spotlight: The Power Hour

November 10th, 2023 by Liz Kosik

Show Name: The Power Hour

DJ: Ben Ostrowski ’24

When: Thursdays @ 5PM

Q: Name of your show, short description:

A: “The Power Hour,” playing the best of the alt-rock and pop-punk worlds

Q: Why did you choose to host a show at WLOY?

A: I was inspired by the video game Forza Horizon 3 to do my show. While I drive around in my fancy cars, the in-game radio station I tune into is an alt-rock station playing the likes of blink-182 and The 1975. The commentary given by the host was always funny and witty to me, and I wanted to be the funny/cool guy talking on the radio, so here I am! There’s nothing better than sitting in the studio jamming out to my favorite songs and being able to share my music with the world.

Q: What are the top artists played on your show?

A: Waterparks and The Maine

Q: Piece of advice for prospective DJs?

A: Don’t worry about if you won’t be “good enough.” Yes, it’s a new skill you must acquire, but we’re here to enjoy ourselves more than anything!

WLOY thanks Ben for his mutual love of music and dedication to the station! Tune in to “The Power Hour” on Thursdays from 5-6 PM. 🙂
