  Welcome to Memories of WRSU Rutgers Radio- If you ever worked there, these are your times.
  April 2021 - Been working on collecting audio from various sources. This will be posted as soon as a majority has been properly cleaned and edited. During research, there has been many non-WRSU stories, pictures and sounds found. Because of this, you will find items not strickly related to WRSU, but interest to Rutgers in general. RU has a very long and mostly forgotten history. As pieces of interest are found they may show up here. Rutgers is more than WRSU. Hard to believe....
July 2020 This was a major update, which added several thousand new images, which brings the total to over 10,000 images. Some are just the paper work which makes the station run.
But most have names which mostly been lost. All these people use to make the station run once upon a time. It is kind of amazing how many people took care of the station over the decades, and allowed it to be passed to the next generation. Radio has changed a lot since the station went on the air in 1948. Back then AM radio was king, FM was just beginning. TV was Black and White just coming on the air. And the internet was not even a dream. And as the years pass, we have seen over the air radio change. WRSU will continue to morph into something else as time goes by. Could Charles Brookwell and his crew ever believe what communications are today. No. And we cannot see the future either. How long will 'broadcasting' (one to many) be relevant? There will always be entertainment. What will change is how it will be distributed. Hopefully what ever WRSU becomes, Rutgers students will be there to inform and entertain, and learn something.

The Station is very poor at keeping records, and the few that were saved, have been thrown out.
And unless someone comes up with a treasure trove of pictures and papers, this most likely be the last major update. If any one has some pictures, please send them along. Almost anything will be included. It just takes time to update the pages.
Next step is to digitize some old reel to reel tape, and some cassettes. A slow and time consuming process
The site is mostly a collection of information and pictures/news paper articles. And some sounds. These are actually the hardest to find.
These images came from the following:
Rutgers University - Special Collections - Alexander Library
Steven Greene '79
Charles Brookwell '48
Daniel Schleck '78
and WRSU Alumni from all over.

As time goes on, more will added. If you have anything to be added, contact via wrsu@wrsufm.com

The site sorted by decade, and then by information category type. Often, the year for the image is simply a guess. Based on the background, or staffer. Many of the images have no name with the pictures, and a lot of 'unknown'. If you know who these people are, a correction will be made.
This site has no official connection to WRSU. It is a 'fan' site, made by a former long time member.
WRSU was a lot of fun, and a great learning experience. I hope this bring back some fond memories. Enjoy.
Now it is time to do a legal ID:  WRSU....
