Nov 12, 2004

A new voice will join the radio airwaves in Flint beginning Friday, Nov. 19, when WKUF-LP FM 94.3 is launched from the campus of Kettering University.

The Bulldogs will start jamming Friday, Nov. 19, when WKUF-LP (W-Kettering University in Flint Low Power) FM Radio begins broadcasting at 94.3 on the FM dial. Under the mottos of "Bringing unity to the Flint community" and "Where Bulldogs jam" (the Bulldog is the Kettering University mascot), the student-run radio station will host a national news service and feature student and community programming.

Programming will include Pacifica Radio, a service of the Pacifica Radio Foundation, bringing listeners alternative, community, free speech, listener-sponsored radio for more than 50 years, and such student-produced shows as "The Hype Show," "Shadow One" with DJ Rome and DJ Shef, "Mixed Signals" with DJ Eric Jacuzzi a.k.a DJ E.J., and "The Uh? Show" with DJ *****. The current program schedule is available online at www.liveshows.wkuf.org.

Station management is currently seeking community producers for original shows that will represent the voices of Flint. Weekly meetings are Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in BJ's Lounge in the lower level of the Campus Center Building on the southwest corner of Chevrolet and Third avenues.

Those interested in hosting a radio show, whether educational or for entertainment, are encouraged to visit the "'Host A Show" web site at http://www.wkus.org/content/15. Check the schedule for avaliable time slots prior to applying.
