In August, forty years ago, WFDU (FM) began broadcasting to the New York region and became a laboratory for students of Fairleigh Dickinson University to learn the art and craft of broadcasting.

To commemorate the inaugural broadcast in 1971, the station, located at 89.1 on the FM dial and available on the web at www.wfdu.fm, aired a retrospective of the station’s history that began at Noon on Tuesday, August 30 - four decades to the day and hour of the first sign on. The broadcast, produced by Program Director Duff Sheffield, highlighted the work of scores of announcers throughout the years, while serving as an audio time capsule of popular music and trends from 1971 to today. 

If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this retrospective of the station's history, please contact Duff at duff@fdu.edu .
