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
The 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
