WWSU

Yesterday I had a chance to go back to the campus of Wright State University for the first time in 18 years.  My wife is a student at WSU and I went with her to take care of some legal business.  The lawyer's office just happened to be down the hall from WWSU, where I spent a fair amount of time playing obscure new wave and post-punk music for the handful of people who could pick up its 10-watt signal.

Wow!  Things seem to have changed for the better at "Dayton's Wright Choice."  Gone is the dingy, closet-sized studio which was replaced with large, bright rooms and lots of chrome and glass.  The only thing missing was the giant wall of vinyl records which was idiotically sold off in the early 1990s for a short-sighted station fundraiser.

106.9 WWSU is a block-formatted station featuring Rock, Hip-Hop, R&B, Sports, Alternative and various other programming.  They are licensed to Fairborn, Ohio.
