Radio has a long history at Brockport, going back into the 1950s when the "Radio Club" was formed. In 1964 the call letters WBSU were assigned, but it was still a closed circuit broadcast. The FM transmitter station started in 1981.
The station has a web page with a history section that was written by Warren Kozireski, who has been with the station in one way or another since his student days here! Below is the club from the 1964 Saga yearbook.

Donald Tower, right, was president of the college from 1944-1964. When he came here the school was a small institution with perhaps 300 students and 25 faculty, all in the one building, (which we now call Hartwell Hall.) The post WWII years radically transformed Brockport, like all higher education then. Tower was a founding member of the SUNY system in 1948, oversaw the expansion of the campus by a number of buildings, including Lathrop on Kenyon, shown in this photo, and saw the enrollment grow from a few hundred to a few thousand students and a corresponding growth in staffing levels.
