That's too bad, though not really surprising. When I arrived at UMass
in 1963, the station was WTTT and was a community station playing MOR
music. It was my understanding that it was fairly new. The station
lasted for quite some time with that format and call, but changing
conditions made that no longer viable. They added an FM station, WRNX,
but I think that station may no longer be under the same ownership.
