WJHU flyer

1969
Private collection of Ron Nichols

From Ron Nichols: "WJHU was a student run radio station broadcasting at an amazing 0.25 watts, 830 on the AM dial, across the Residence Halls. As the only person from Oklahoma enrolled at Hopkins (I referred to myself as "the token Okie"), I joined the WJHU student staff as Cousin Okie. Both semesters, I broadcast at 5:30am MWF an hour and a half show before heading off to freshman chemistry. During second semester, I also picked up a 4pm hour long show immediately before Mr. T (Baird Thompson). My show was an eclectic mix of music - one could hear Ferlin Husky, followed by the Iron Butterfly, followed by Johnny Cash, etc. I also served as the WJHU record librarian that year. The attached flyer was posted across campus in October 1969."
