Underneath the Student Activi-
ties Building, down a flight of stairs
and at the end of a long hallway, is
the student-run WCBN radio sta-
tion where radio show host arwulf
arwulf broadcasts every week at
88.3 megahertz.
arwulf is a University lecture hall
projectionist who moved to Ann
Arbor in the summer of 1968 at the
age of 1.
A self-proclaimed autodidact,
whichmeansheisself-taught, arwulf
has let this approach toward learning
become a philosophy of sorts.
Born Theodore Grenier, arwulf
said his adopted name found him at
the age of 13. While on a walk with
friends, arwulf said the moon cast
a shadow and his friends told him
he looked like a wolf howling at the
moon.
In addition to his radio show at
the University, arwulf hosts The
Sunday Best on Eastern Michigan
University's radio station WEMU

and writes music reviews on allmu-
sicguide.com.
Despite his many interests,
arwulf said his real passion lies in
radio and music.
"I want to be there to alleviate suf-
fering," arwulf said. "That's the main
body of work."
arwulf's play lists for his Thursday
show have an eclectic range while his
Sunday show focuses more on jazz
and blues tracks.
He said he enjoys experimenting
with different types of formats on his
radio show.
"Every format is worth appreciat-
ing," he said. "We could learn from
formats to get along. We could learn
equality from formats. If all formats
are created equal, maybe we could
then rub off on the human race. I'm
not sure. It's worth a try."
In his many years living around
the University, arwulf has witnessed
changes in the student body and in
Ann Arbor.

arwulf arwulf is a disc jockey for WCBN-FM. His Sunday
radio show focuses on jazz and blues tracks.

. A news article in yester-

3/23/2009) incorrectly
reported that all charges

tions@michigandaily.com.

"The Diag was a 100-percent, con-
ant party," arwulf said. "You'd walk
-om the Engineering Arch and from
ie time you got to North University
ou'd be high, even if you didn't mean
>. That's the way the environment
ras around here."
arwulf said he does not have
n iPod and that while it is a great
dvancement, it has its drawbacks.
"Every time a student comes to
ae and says 'did you find an iPod
n the auditorium,' I say well this
s what happens when your entire
ecord collection is the size of a
:eath Bar!" he said.
arwulf said his mission is to cheer
eople up and help them learn about
iusic through his radio broadcasts.
'hrough his craft, arwulf has devel-
ped a following in Ann Arbor and
round the country.
"I'm plotting to disrupt people's
reconceptions and expectations,"
rwulf said.

Mount Redoubt in Alaska
has erupted five times since
Sunday, spewing ash col-
umns some 60,000 feet in the
air, CNN reported. Experts say
the ashfall from the eruptions
will be about the thickness of
a penny or a dime. The volcano
last erupted in 1990.
On Friday the Univer-
sity announced that
faculty and retirees on
University health plans will
soon be paying 30 percent of
their total health care costs
- a considerable increase.
