WWUH 50th Anniversary Special - Part 1

10/19/2018 12:30 pm
10/19/2018 1:30 pm

WWUH signed on for the first time in July, 1968. As part of the 50th anniversary commemoration, the station conducted a series of interviews with over 90 current and former staff members and searched archives for tapes of old programs.
 
The result of this effort is the WWUH 50th Anniversary Special - a documentary detailing the history of the station's programming and staff over the last fifty years.

The program will be broadcast in four parts on successive Friday afternoons at 12:30 p.m., starting Friday, October 19th.
 
PART 1 - Friday, October 19th at 12:30 p.m.
 
Part 1 begins with a history of the station's long running-morning program, FM On Toast and its transition from a soft rock program to a folk/acoustic music program through the efforts of several station volunteers, including the late Bill Domler.
 
Another segment in Part 1 examines the evolution of the station's early afternoon programming from the Recess Rock, Afternoon Roll and Midday Fuse programs to what is now the Synthesis program.
 
Also discussed are the UH Radio Bluegrass program, the Culture Cafe program, the It's All Live events and the station's coverage of the New England Fiddle Contest through most of its run in Hartford.
 
The documentary was produced and edited by WWUH volunteer Brandon Kampe, who joined the WWUH staff in 2005 and who's first documentary for WWUH, the Hartford Circus Fire - An Audio Recollection has been aired numerous times on the station.
