Re: "former" college stations

WFMU has a very interesting history. Not only is it the last remnant of
Upsala College. (The station actually bought the license off the college
in 1994, one year before the college went bankrupt. Just this year they
moved off the empty college campus and over to new studios in Jersey
City). But, 'FMU is also the only FM station to currently broadcast from
Armstrong's orginal transmitter site in Alpine, NJ. 

And (heart be still) they do not accept underwriting announcements.
