WKCR-FM is celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2016! WKCR originated as the Columbia University Radio Club (CURC) in 1936 and our first official broadcast occurred on February 24th, 1941. A few months later, on October 10th, 1941, the CURC was granted its license from the Federal Communications Commission. WKCR celebrates 1941 as its founding year and February 24th as its birthday. Join us as we honor and look back on WKCR’s 75 years of broadcasting and radio throughout the remainder of 2015 and the year of 2016. Check our website for exclusive, rare, and special content unveiled for this remarkable milestone in WKCR’s history. Happy 75th Anniversary WKCR!
