College radio has a long history at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., with the first station launching in the 1920s. Today, streaming radio station WCUA operates out of the basement of the music building, sharing space with the percussion department. The dimly-lit station home houses gems from WCUA's past and also is the hub for its current operations.
