Renée Bolduc is first-year student with her own radio show on WPCR, Plymouth State’s radio station.

Bolduc’s show is called “White Thunder”, and it airs Tuesday nights from 11 p.m.-1 a.m.

The show has everything. Bolduc changes up the topic of discussion and genre of music each week. She covers a wide array of different genres. So far, she has done shows on swing music, ska, east coast rap, vapor wave, and more.

Bolduc explained the genre of vapor wave. “It was the first genre to come from globalization, first genre to be born on the internet. It takes 80’s music and splices it together with different things such as consumerism advertisements, elevator music, and smooth jazz.”

Artists that put vapor wave music out there are completely anonymous. Bolduc said that they aren’t in it to gain fame or a following. They are in it to share their art with the world, “creating for the sake of creating.”

Bolduc said she doesn’t have a favorite band, but she listens to basically everything and enjoys it, with the exception of country music. When it comes to music, or anything, Bolduc said, “If people are happy, I’m about it.”

Sometimes, Bolduc brings guests on her show. She plays their favorite genre of music, and discuss different happenings in life.

Bolduc was involved in music throughout high school. She attended Spalding High School in Rochester, NH, where she was in chorus and played trumpet in marching band.

She was also involved with her school ’s drama club, did four years of public relations and marketing for the Student Senate, and attended all high-honors courses.

Bolduc said her favorite thing in high school was “playing my trumpet and sticking my nose in a good book”.

She said sloths are her favorite animal, because “sloth encompasses who I am.”

At Plymouth State, Bolduc is pursuing a marketing degree. In addition to WPCR radio, she is involved with MAPS (the Marketing Associations of Plymouth State). She said that the thing she loves most about being at PSU is the passion she sees in class from her teachers.

Bolduc said her biggest hope is to get job with corporate responsibi ity, preferably with the corporation Coca-Cola. “I admire that corporation with every ounce of my being,” said Bolduc. In her senior year of high school, her environmental sustainability group took a field trip to one of Coca-Cola’s bottling companies, and she fell in love.

Renée Bolduc’s show “White Thunder” airs Tuesday nights from 11 p.m.-1 a.m. on 91.7 WPCR.
