5 Albums That Got Me Through Black History Month

by Yemi Ikotun

Black History Month 2021 is truly like no other. With Bobby Shmurda finally home, JoJo Siwa v. Dababy (2021), Lil Uzi Vert’s $24 million forehead diamond, and all the discourse around Lori Harvey, each day is a little more explosive than the last, but in the best way possible. To celebrate the culture, I made it my goal to listen to primarily black artists.

Ranking All The Halftime Shows I Care About

by Gem Miller

It’s the end of February: the most boring, cold, and all-around yucky month. The only thing to look forward to is Valentine's Day (which you may or may not be dreading) and the Super Bowl.

WMUC’s Broken Hearts Club: A Valentine’s Day Special

Dear Cupid, all respect to you, your craft, and your round-the-year work, but please if we have to play “Nobody” by Mitski on repeat and view our latest heartbreak as if it’s the season finale to the worst teen drama ever to metaphorically find closure... we will LOSE it.
