1920 - 2020

celebrates a century

I have always loved music and saw that the library at WRUC was huge and they received all of the new releases from the various record labels. My shows always included eclectic music as that has been my musical taste for as long as I can remember (you would have heard Bill Withers and Traffic in the same show). I always made sure to pick a long song to start the show so that I would have time to pick my music from the library and make sure that I looked into the new music bin.

Working with digital music, first iTunes and now Spotify, it brings back wonderful memories of those days because suddenly I am in the driver’s seat again, creating playlists and picking all kinds of eclectic music from every genre. Working at WRUC was truly one of the highlights of my time at Union.

One of the most powerful dealmakers in music, Julie oversees Sony’s legal, business affairs and governmental matters on a global level. A political science major at Union, she went on to graduate from New York City’s Cardozo Law School. She is a trustee of Union.
