Station Info

The best damn student group on campus, WCFM strives to be the greatest radio station in all of Prospect; maybe even in the entire Odd Quad! It has a transmitter known to be AT LEAST as powerful as a good hair dryer (sometimes)! WCFM is known primarily for melting your goddamn faces off.

WCFM was founded in 1879. It went underground when frats were abolished in 1970-something (We don't sweat the date), but resurfaced as a major force on campus when Adam Sober (not a joke) Ain took over in the year of our Savior, 2004. Maybe it was 2003.

They also have pretty sick tee shirts.

Legend has it that during one especially big-time hip-hop show, the bass was felt in WCMA.
