Baylor Magazine features my work

I get a mention in this month's Baylor Magazine but not by name. In the Baylor Homecoming Parade history timeline section of the issue, 107.1 KWBU gets a mention for the first parade broadcast via the Internet in 1998. I was the program director of the station, an anchor for the broadcast that year and one of the folks who got the stream ready for the Web (No doubt Dr. Michael Korpi, David Cox and Michael Bettersworth had a big hand too).

Glad to see someone remembers that. Here is the original article in the Baylor Lariat:

For the past 10 years KWBU carried the parade exclusively on the radio, but this year they decided to broaden their listening audience through technology.

The broadcast is an opportunity for students to get hands-on radio experience outside the studio.

'It's challenging to students because we are doing what's normally done on television except without the pictures,' said Michael McGuff, program director for KWBU. 'It forces us to be more vivid and descriptive about each parade entry.' READ THE REST

You can read more about my wild college radio days in the Baylor Lariat archive.

And if you have read all the way to this point of this post, then you might be interested in a Baylor/Waco radio article where the legendary Voice of the Baylor Bears, Frank Fallon, is mentioned.

    too fucking bad KWBU is now run by NPR crap. Takes away a chance for students to learn about how to be a radio DJ.
