DJ Spotlights | Alyx Vissing

Alyx Vissing: Freshman

Broadcasting Major with an emphasis in Audio/Radio with a minor in Music Tech

Ironton, Ohio

On-Air Shift: Monday’s 8-10am

What is your favorite…

Food? My favorite food would either be buffalo wings or tacos

Color? Pink. Light pink, something pale, like a blush.

Bible Verse?  My favorite Bible verse would either be Galatians 2:20 or Isaiah 53:5.

I like Gal 2:20 just because of the full illustration it gives of how our Christian life ought to be lived. That I am crucified with Christ so with the “I die daily” aspect, but also, nevertheless I live, but now Christ in me. I think it’s a really great picture of how our daily life ought to operate.

Then Isaiah 53:5 I feel like is a really beautiful picture of what the Gospel really is. Jesus dying for all of these things and just the depth of the pain that He went through and then at the end of the verse, the last line is “by His stripes, I am healed.” For me, that was always a beautiful picture. As a teenager, I went through a battle with self-harm and so that took on a new meaning as I grew older. The fact that not by my stripes, it wasn’t anything I did to myself, but because of Him I am healed through both of those things.

Resound song? Currently, the one I have listened to the most as of late is by Crowder. Let me see… All My Hope by Crowder! I love the tune of it, but the lyrics are always why I fall in love with the song and I just love the entire concept that ALL my hope is in Jesus. Just. The depth of that.

What got you interested in Resound? I have always loved music and was very interested in radio as a whole. This was a way for me to not only learn, but also to gain actual experience that I will continue to apply through my career.

Are you involved in anything else on campus? I am currently running unopposed for Sophomore Class Women’s Ministry leader and I am a news anchor for Cedars.

What are your hobbies? I love to sing, I write music, and I do a lot of stuff! I like anything creative, really. I guess if you could count talking as a hobby….

What is a goal you have for your life? I would love to either have my own live radio show and be a radio broadcaster or to be able to produce my own music.

Is there anything you want to tell people that you don’t get the chance to on the air? I would say really, just that, Resound is this amazing opportunity. That even though we may hear it in passing as we go through the lower SSC or just have it on in the background, it is such a safe place to be able to connect through all the things that we love through music and through Christ with other people. That to me is such a beautiful, intimate thing though something we get to experience casually within  our everyday life. I know I, personally, don’t appreciate as much as I ought to all the time and I appreciate the opportunity to get to share that with others.

DJ Spotlights | Keegan D’Alfonso


Keegan D’Alfonso: Sophomore Journalism Major from Cape Porpoise, Maine.

On-Air DJ: Airs Thursdays from 11am-1pm

Favorite food? Chicken cutlet curry from Coco Ichiban.

Favorite color? Olive green

Favorite verse? Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

Favorite Resound song? Can I choose more than one? I really like “Prodigal” by Sidewalk Prophets and that new one by TobyMac—“Love Broke Thru”.

What is the theme of your shift? I like to talk and joke about life as a college student. I really try to incorporate teaching in all the stories I tell. I try to be funny and serious at the same time. I’m not sure exactly how well I am able to accomplish that, but I try and have fun doing it.

How did you get involved with Resound? I had previously been a part of a radio show with one of my friends, and I really enjoyed it. I knew I wanted to get involved with radio again, so when I heard about Resound, I immediately applied to be a DJ.

What else are you involved in at Cedarville? I used to be a DL. But I am currently the off-campus news editor of Cedars and I will be taking over as editor-in-chief next year.

Hobbies? I don’t know if I have time for hobbies anymore! I enjoy photography, and I have a Canon 60D. I like to play video games too when I have the time. I really enjoy playing strategy-type games.

Life goal? Right now I am pursuing journalism, and I’m not sure where that will lead me. Something that I have felt God leading me is to get involved with aid or mission agencies. Churches like to hear from the missionaries they are supporting, but the missionaries don’t always have time to sit down and write up a newsletter about what they have been doing. If I could do full-time work helping missionaries report on their work, and allow them to spend more time ministering to those around them, that would be awesome. But it will ultimately be wherever God leads me.

Random fact? I was in the Marines for 5 years after graduating high school. I got out as a sergeant. I had one combat deployment and various other deployments like training in other countries. I spent 1 year, 1 month, and 11 days total at sea, and I hate the ocean. I intended to join the Air Force, but then bumped into the Marine recruiter, and kinda got wound up in the Marines. I did enjoy the traveling, and got to go to 11 different countries during my time in the Marines.

Advice for blog readers? The best advice I can think to give college students is to take self-ownership. College is different than high school, and you really have to learn how to think for yourself. You are going to encounter things in your faith and in your life that will create questions you have never had before, and you have to take those things and investigate them to take ownership of everything you believe, and make it your own. Also, you need to learn that every open door is not necessarily an open door from God. You have to be praying and thinking of everything in your life, and look to God to determine what things He wants you to pour into with all of your abilities.
