Size: 2 box (0.66 cu.ft.)


The first radio broadcasts from campus were agricultural programs sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Services. These were broadcast live over telephone lines to WHEB in Portsmouth. In 1930, a radio station was constructed on the third floor of Thompson Hall and students from the Speech and Drama Department formed the Mike and Dial Club, producing live dramatic plays and a variety of other shows. In 1952, a new transmitter allowed the campus to send radio signals through electrical lines on campus and WMDR was born. In 1958, the station moved into the newly-constructed Memorial Union Building. In 1962, they applied for an FM license and began WUNH.
