Lacking something else to do I was reading some Sid Rich newsletters the other day and came across this great bit about the installation of the antenna on the roof. I’ve always enjoyed turning up pieces of Rice radio history so I was delighted to find this goofy drawing on the cover:
I hadn’t realized that Sid residents were cut off from all the glorious KTRU programming until the FM antenna was up and running:
Bonus: A while back John “Grungy” Gladu sent us some images of a later (I’m not sure of the date) antenna-raising, crediting Wiley Sanders ’78 for the photos. When I went back for a look at them I was happy to note that many of them actually look a lot like that goofy drawing above.
