For my 99th radio station tour, I visited WHCS at Hunter College in New York City. I journeyed to the station on a Saturday morning in February (Feb. 20th to be exact) and was delighted to see not only the station as well as some fascinating historical tidbits. It may also be the only station that I've visited that has created its own Zombie video.

Radio Station Field Trip #98 - WBCR at Brookyn College

On February 18, I raced over to Brooklyn College in order to see its long-time radio station WBCR. Operating only on weekdays, the station can be heard both online and over a low power unlicensed AM signal. Although there was interest in creating a radio station on campus back in the 1940s (there were radio classes there during that era), evidence suggests that a radio station didn't launch until perhaps 1968.
