We are sad to announce that one of UMFM’s longest tenured vol­un­teers, Marc LaCasse aka DJ Oxide, will be hang­ing up his head­phones at the end of Decem­ber, mark­ing the end of an era here on the sta­tion. sHIFT Radio has been a main­stay on Fri­day nights, occu­py­ing the 9PM to 11PM times­lot since 2001, bring the best tech­no and house vibes to our air­waves from across the coun­try and around the world!

some words from Marc himself:

that’s all folks!

Well it’s been a fun ride, but André and I would like to thank every­one who tuned in over the years to sHIFT Radio 101.5 UMFM, came and dropped a set at the sta­tion or just hung out before, dur­ing and after.

Back in 2001 Phil, Shel­don and Jay Rock got us to fill in for their shows and short­ly there­after Liz & Jared wel­comed us into the vol­un­teer crew at 101.5. Our focus was always Can­con and show­cas­ing the under­ground sounds of house & tech­no.

But alas — things change. Since André moved to the west coast, Oxide has been host­ing more guest mix­es and grew con­tin­ued sup­port from local and glob­al DJs. The time has now come to pass the baton.

Start­ing in 2022, we look for­ward to a new show debut­ing on Fri­day nights that will show­case the cross-genre elec­tron­ic sounds from an amaz­ing group of Peg City’ female and female-iden­ti­fy­ing DJs, as well more great under­ground pro­gram­ming from 101.5 UMFM!

Thank you for lis­ten­ing, and for your sup­port through­out our run.

Oxide & André Bis­seck
sHIFT Radio 2001 – 2021 UMFM 101.5

We wish Marc noth­ing but the best in all future endeav­ors and we thank him for his tire­less efforts at the sta­tion. Not only was he a great ambas­sador for UMFM dur­ing his 20 year run, he also assist­ed behind the scenes — sell­ing ads and orga­niz­ing and assist­ing in the exe­cu­tion of some amaz­ing fundrais­ers that ben­e­fit­ed our greater vol­un­teer base as a whole. Thanks to Marc for all of the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to what we do here at UMFM, you’ll for­ev­er be a big part of our radio fam­i­ly!

We encour­age all you to enjoy one final sHIFTs­mas this month, cul­mi­nat­ing in an 8 hour tech­no extrav­a­gan­za on New Year’s Eve!
