KTRU Tuesdays: KTRU Goes City-Wide

On May 20, 1971, KTRU 91.7 FM expanded its range across the city. No longer limited to the confines of the hedges, the radio station pumped up its wattage by ten and could be heard within a ten to fifteen mile radius of the campus. To do this, KTRU installed an antenna on top of Sid Richardson College, which explains the photograph attached to this audio clip.

In celebration of this occasion, the radio station solicited the opinions and congratulations from Malcolm Lovett, Dean Wierum, Gene Coulbourn Hackerman, and an unknown speaker. If you recognize the voice, please let us know in the comments.
