Coyote Radio has students buzzing this quarter about Power Hour hosted by DJ Panda-Monium.
Amanda Fernandez also known as DJ Panda-Monium will be the host of Power Hour sponsored by our campus Coyote Radio.
Coyote Radio helps broadcast local artists and bands to help get their name out to major producers and production companies.
Power Hour is a full hour of music in which Fernandez incorporates various mixes for all students to hear in the San Manuel Student Union Game Room every Tuesday and Thursday 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Fernandez works in the promotions department for Coyote Radio and has hosted Power Hour since January.
Initially Fernandez started DJing for fun with her dad at home and at some local parties. “My dad was a DJ and his stuff was always in the house, so I started playing with it,” said Fernandez.
Fernandez then started volunteering at Coyote Radio Station, where she would soon after get her title as the campus DJ.
Now Fernandez shares her music with students and promotes the radio by sponsoring and supporting local bands in San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties.
Along with helping artists, Coyote Radio will also be participating in many events this quarter.
“We will be doing a Day of the Dead event, on Friday, Nov. 1,” mentions Fernandez.
Coyote Radio hopes to cover all the events they possibly can this quarter and any others that pop up.
“Events will pop up as the quarter goes on, so if they want me to be there then I’ll be there!” says Fernandez.
In addition to playing great music, Fernandez helps support our campus radio station by sending artists down to the station and speaking with the crew to help them get their name and music out there.
By working with the radio for some time now, Fernandez has high hopes that the radio will help her get her name out in the public.
“My goals are for people to know who I am, that I’m DJ Panda-Monium, that I’m the campus DJ and to hopefully leave my mark,” said Fernandez.
Fernandez hopes that Coyote Radio will be able to be on the main stage for huge events, like Coyote Fest and Late-night so that she and other DJs have an opportunity to spin in front of a large audience.
Throwing down some of her sickest beats and remixes while students play free pool and video games for the hour. Students are able to have a good time playing games and shoot some pool for free while DJ Panda-Monium throws a new spin on the turn table.
