DJ Spotlight of the Week: Grace Whipple

DJ+Spotlight+of+the+Week%3A+Grace+Whipple

Grace Whipple started this semester off strong by training to become a DJ!! You can hear her as “DJ Cool Whip” on Saturdays 6-8 p.m.

Where are you from?

Mason, MI

What made you decide to join The IMPACT and become a DJ?

I grew up listening to a lot of radio with my family (so much “Who’s it by?” trivia and American Top 40 reruns with the goat Casey Kasem) and I remember thinking it would be so fun to be the one in the booth picking the tunes and talking on air, so I decided to become the one talking on air!

What has been your best on-air experience?

The number of friends/family who called or texted the request line during my first shift – I barely got to pick a song!

Favorite song/album of 2023-2024

Unreal Unearth – Hozier

What is the best concert experience you have had? Why?

Gordon Lightfoot at DeVos Performance Hall in Grand Rapids. I took myself on a date – had a nice dinner in downtown GR, sat in the second row next to some random middle-aged dudes, and did a lot more yelling and standing up than I thought I would. His opener and band were so fantastic and he sounded great! He has been such a huge part of my music journey and I felt so honored to be able to see him in the fall of 2022 before his passing.

Favorite Dining Hall?

Shaw (only because of Hunan Chicken – the best lunch on campus)

What is your comfort TV show?

House MD

If you were on a deserted island, what 3 albums would you bring?

Stop Making Sense (live) – Talking Heads, Wild Planet – The B-52s, The Dark Side of The Moon – Pink Floyd

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

The Bitch is Back – Elton John
