Fifty-five years ago, on February 8, 1958, WYSO began broadcasting.
It was students who did all the legwork to get the station licensed and ready. After many years of un-licensed, unofficial broadcasting on the campus of Antioch College, WYSO went on the air with 19 watts of power. They gathered expectantly on the second floor of the student union building in the new studios. At 8pm, Bruce Johanson, script in hand, stepped up to the microphone.
