Before Pandora and Spotify, college radio literally consisted of two turntables and a microphone. In these photographs from the fall of 1993, WFNM personnel Dave Mann ’94 (left) and Rich Quinlan ’95 are pictured “perusing” selections from the station’s record library. The F&M radio station traces its roots back to 1953, and the formation of the F&M Radio Club under the direction of student Richard Ott. In the fall of 1971, the station received a Class D FM frequency license and changed its call letters from WWFM to WFNM. Today—from its familiar spot overlooking Hartman Green—the student-run and College-owned station continues to offer a variety of programming, from classic rock and indie rock to jazz, international tunes, hip hop, and more.
