KTRU is Now KTRU

Our student run radio station has successfully regained the call letters KTRU. For more in depth reporting on this, please see the Thresher’s article on the purchase.

Since KTRU still needs to do station IDs, we’d suggest they dig up some of their golden oldies from amazing people who once graced the studio with their presence, like Iggy Pop, Joan Jett, Joey Ramone, Frank Zappa, and Stevie Nicks just to name a few.

We’ve featured some of these IDs on the blog before, but here’s over 14 minutes of station ID bliss.

If you want even more Rice student media, we are currently placing all of The Campanile’s online. We’re currently at 66 in total, but more are going up every week. Each pdf has to pass a number of accessibility steps to be ready for all of our patrons, so it is taking us time.

If you want to take a trip down yearbook lane, feel free to peruse the 1971 edition.

    • Sadly, that interview didn’t make it online because of the music. Maybe one day we can go through those interviews and cut out the studio music and place them online.

  1. I’d love to see my class’s 1970 Campanile online. Mine got packed away somewhere during a move, since “The Box” didn’t fit well on the bookshelf where I keep my other Campaniles (1967-69 & 1971).
