Raceday Recovery – WRCT Broadcasts and Posters

Hey guys, we here at the BAA have taken a well deserved couple weeks off from the intense carnival we had this year. But, with summer quickly approaching there are a few things that we’ll be posting about before we all go into hibernation.


For those of you fortunate enough to purchase one of the awesome buggy posters made at carnival, you have Student buggy enthusiast Rika Keener to thank (ekeener@andrew.cmu.edu). We got a lot of interest over the few days of carnival, so we’re trying to work on a way to provide them to everyone who wants one. We’ll be sure to let you know when we get more info on this.

logofinal.aiIf you’re still on the buggy high with all of these comments that have been going around, maybe these recorded Pre-Raceday WRCT broacasts can help lull you to sleep. In addition to this year’s broadcast, we’ve managed to find last year’s broadcast and one from 2006.

One thought on “Raceday Recovery – WRCT Broadcasts and Posters”

  • I may as well post this here (feel free to add it to a news post if you want, or don’t. Either way is fine with me).

    Every year, I create a new parody buggy song, and every once in a while I upload them to YouTube (Previous ones include songs called “Buggy Chair” (to the tune of Piano Man) and “The Faceplant Song (a.k.a. Pushin’ On A Buggy)” (to the tune of “The Bartender Song (a.k.a. Sittin’ At A Bar)”, both of which were linked in a news post here several years ago and now VLC thinks the CD cover of those songs is an image that only ever existed in that one news post). This year’s song, to the tune of The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?), is called “Who Drives The Buggy?” Hopefully the concept is self-explanatory. I’m no expert in audio or video (as you can tell by the YouTube video), but it will hopefully be good for at least a chuckle.

    Thanks to all the drivers who were willing to be involved during Design Comp (and hopefully this alleviates any fear that I was just some creepy old guy who was looking to get video of drivers saying their names for my own personal collection). Sorry the audio is really poor in those parts; I did what I could to hear the names, but some are really tough (so I threw captions on it).
