Yes, on their closed-circuit campus only student station WTBU.

His first gig on actual airwaves was on WNTN 1550 AM in Newton
during their progressive AOR incarnation in the early-mid 70's.

I listened to WNTN often back then, and I'm sure I must have
heard him. I think he sounded like a typical AOR jock at the
time. It was many years before he developed his infamous shock
talk radio schtick.
