31 years ago today former General Manager Norm Prusslin and then Student Program Director Rich Koch signed on with the first WUSB 90.1 radio broadcast on the FM airwaves. This broadcast inaugurated the operation of a new local university-community non-commercial radio station from the campus of Stony Brook University, New York.
" Now, all these years later, I'm proud of the efforts of the generations of student and community staff and the support of our listeners who have helped to shape the truly unique station WUSB is. I congratulate Isobel, Frank Burgert and the current staff as we mark this time to reflect on past accomplishments and to look ahead to future opportunities and purpose.....
"This is special day and there really is no other radio station like WUSB. Norm's dedication as the past station General Manager along with all the staff and volunteers have made WUSB the creative and expressive radio station it continues to be today. As WUSB moves ahead with future changes, I look forward to helping the "experiment" along with our current and future volunteers and student leaders and of course our devoted listeners." -Isobel Breheny-Schafer
