Hal Roeth with fellow student in the early days radio at Antioch College.

WYSO Public Radio was founded by Antioch College students, Hal Roeth, Terry Herndon and Ed Richard. For this first episode we’ll hear the story of how this station was founded, from one of the people that made it happen. Ed Richard is now a member of the Board of Trustees at the college and he stopped in at the station in the spring of 2013. Producer of the Antioch Word, Kijin Higashibaba, got a chance to sit down with Richard and he talked about how WYSO came into being as well as his excitement for the reunion of Antioch College and the radio station.

Theme music for The Word is written, performed and produced by Seth Kaplan. Additional music for this episode is by Podington Bear.
