WIDB Talks to Saluki Craft

Saluki Craft Door

The entrance to Saluki Craft, found at:
715 S University Ave Ste 102
Carbondale IL 62901 may be a student-run radio station but Saluki Craft is a student-owned business.

WIDB staff members, Stephanie Wiewel and Sarah Maher, spoke to two of the part-owners of Saluki Craft about how they got their start as well as the experiences that go along with owning a business.  All of this is being done while the four student-owners are still taking classes at SIU. 

 This summer, Saluki Craft opened on ‘The Island’ in Carbondale.

For more information you can call Saluki Craft at (618) 490-1576, send an email to, or head over to their webpage.


Customers can use the laser cutter owned by Saluki Craft. The laser cutter is the largest in Southern Illinois and has large air compressors to prevent burn marks on the material being cut.


The interior of Saluki Craft was redesigned and reorganized by the new student owners before opening.


Remedy Problems

Sorry for the inconvenience, folks. We are having some technical problems in the Remedy studio that I hope will be solved shortly. Until further notice, there is no content on the Remedy stream, though it is still there (one problem down, hundreds to go).

Your Chief Engineer,

UPDATE 3/5/2013: For our listeners I have gotten the stream up so you may listen to the music rotation on the Remedy but there will still be no lives shows for some time.

UPDATE 3/18/2013: The Remedy is back! Shows and all!

Your Chief Engineer,


Streams are up!

Just yesterday I was able to fix and reconnect the studios to the internet! Thus, each studio is live again, unless otherwise noted. That said, the Remedy has been dead air since roughly midnight. That is some sort of software problem or a student DJ did not turn the automation back on. Regardless, an easy fix once I am up in the station today.



Chief Engineer

Unable to Stream?

Yes, sadly, no one will be able to listen to the stream for a while as the internet line to the part of the building we at broadcast from is dysfunctional. As engineer I looked into a few solutions today, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do beside put in a maintenance request. This was done earlier today and I am hoping for a quick turn around. But I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

I will post another update once the problem has been resolved. Until then, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Mike Maxwell
