Reunion Planned for WMUC, Country’s ‘Oldest College Radio Station’

Reunion Planned for WMUC, Country's 'Oldest College Radio Station'

A group of alumni of WMUC plans a reunion to note the station’s 70th anniversary and the University of Maryland’s 150th. It’s set for October.
The group has created a Yahoo group to share information.
According to the alumni group, WMUC is the oldest college radio station in the United States. “Founded in 1937 at the University of Maryland in College Park, WMUC consists of the original carrier-current AM station (heard in the dorms, dining halls, and the student union) at 650 kHz, and a 10-watt FM station that started in August of 1979 at 88.1 MHz,” it states.
