Lost Audio from 08/29/2021


This is a very short piece but a significant one. I was still a senior in high school and (as I often did) I was exploring the FM radio dial when I found a brand new station at 90.1FM. This was what was being broadcast on that day in early June 1977, a few weeks before WUSB in Stony Brook signed on as an FM station for the first time officially. Little did I know the life altering effect that place would have on me when I started attending college there several months later. (The voice on this broadcast is that of WUSB's Frank Burgert who, as of this writing, is still the station's chief engineer.)
