THE WUSB WEATHER HOTLINE - JUNE 1987

Printer-friendly version

This was a fun little project we ran from the radio station for a little while: the WUSB weather hotline. We discovered that the new campus Rolm phone system allowed a virtually unlimited number of people to call in to a prerecorded announcement, which would repeat indefinitely. This allowed us to set up our own weather hotline where we could share all kinds of other info. This particular recording was made in June 1987, shortly before WUSB's tenth anniversary, and was clearly recorded right on the street.
