WOBC Time Machine: A Peek into the Station in the 1950s

It might be hard to visualize, but our station wasn’t always located on the 3rd floor of Wilder. In the mid-1950s, WOBC was broadcast from a garage behind a structure called Grey Gables, which stood where Mudd currently is today. When the construction of our beloved Brutalist library began, Grey Gables was demolished and WOBC moved to its current location. Here’s a peek into the station you never knew!
