Station Info

The best damn student group on campus, WCFM is the bomb and that's that. Sign up to be a DJ or else.

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. WCFM is known primarily for melting your goddamn faces off.

They also have pretty sick tee shirts.
