[February 28, 2009]  Lincoln College's student-run radio station, WLNX-FM 88.9, is teaming up with The Cell, a local not-for-profit organization that organizes rock concerts and other events that promote a drug- and alcohol-free environment for area youth.

RestaurantThe next show will be on Friday, March 6, at the Lincoln VFW, beginning at 6 p.m. The headliner is Doctor! Doctor! The show will also feature the bands Don't Mess with Winkie, The Sacred Eternal, Silent Vengeance, Born Empty and Cryptick.

The college radio station, known as 89X, will be a co-sponsor for all of the organization's concerts, providing free airtime for the concerts' promotion and on-air interviews with the bands that plan to perform.

John Malone, WLNX general manager, thinks it's a good partnership. "The Cell is an organization with a noble mission, and anytime we can offer a fun alternative to drugs and alcohol for our area youth, that's a positive for any community," he said. "We're thrilled to be involved."

Misty Bell of Lincoln, co-founder of The Cell, echoed Malone's statement and said she is thrilled to gain a media partner for local events. "89X is a popular station with area kids, so having them involved is something I am really looking forward to," she said.

WLNX-FM broadcasts 24 hours per day, seven days a week and features an "alternative rock" format that targets young adults. All on-air personalities are students of Lincoln College. Listeners can find WLNX on the Web at
