The grand-daddy of what we are today. Our progenitor. Today you will have the pleasure of hearing first hand from, Eric Hansen, class of 1965. He was there – deep within room 207 of Nelson Hall during the fall semester of 1962 – when an idea was born.

WRCR began broadcasting via carrier current to the college campus in March of 1963 from Hansen’s room in Nelson Hall. WRCR moved to this space in Burpee Center in the Fall of 1964.
