Is nothing sacred?

Time To Reset Your Preset

The end of an era. 

The Brown University radio station WBRU-FM 95.5 will soon be selling its signal and transferring its license to the Educational Media Foundation (EMF). 

WBRU has been broadcasting progressive →album →college →indie →generic modern rock since 1966. 

According to WPRI News:
On its website, EMF describes its mission as to “create compelling media that inspires and encourages you to have a meaningful relationship with Christ.”

I would rather have a meaningful relationship with Judas Priest thank you.

Starting September 1, the station will be an affiliate of the K-Love network. (Kay Love — good name for a drag queen.) 

BRU programming will continue at its website, It’s not the same.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I started listening to WBRU when they first started in 1966. They were just what us rowdy Rhode Island yutes needed in that turbulent time. As Beth implies, WBRU was always one of my car radio pre-sets. How they could sell out in this way is truly baffling and profoundly disappointing. – Will Collette
